I love cooking with crescent rolls because there are delicious recipes for both sweet and savory dishes that will please any palate.

So next time you’re in a dinner rut, instead of fighting over what to make again, whip up some flaky crescent rolls stuffed with your favorite filling and get to the more important things in life, like spending time with your family!

What is Crescent Roll Dough 

Crescent rolls are made from a basic dough that can be found in the refrigerated section of most grocery stores.

Bake them alone to serve as dinner rolls with melted butter or fill them with nearly endless options to make it a meal.

Typically, dough is cut into triangles and rolled into a traditional crescent shape starting with the wide end before baking.

You can also use it to make a variety of crescent roll rings or shape it into a ball for delicious flaky layers of goodness.

Homemade crescent dough can be made with milk, butter, sugar, an egg yolk, and yeast, among a few other ingredients.

They are pretty simple to make from scratch. But if you need a shortcut, you can’t go wrong with a store bought can of crescent rolls.

Pillsbury Crescent Rolls are a family favorite, but there are quite a few different brands to choose from.

Awesome Crescent Roll Recipes

I love using this dough because its super versatile and can be used for Italian beef pinwheels to golden brown breakfast crescents, and everything in between.

Turn your rolls into a meal by filling them with almost anything you want from ham and cheese to sweetened cream cheese and fresh fruit, or buffalo chicken, ground beef or even chocolate.

Below I have collected some fantastic recipes for the whole family.
