Crescent Rolls for the Holidays

I was contacted by My Get Together to host a Pillsbury Crescents “Holiday Entertaining” Recipe Swap. I was excited to host this gathering since I LOVE Pillsbury in general… and crescent rolls..YES PLEASE! We all know crescent rolls are great by themselves, but there are so many other things you can do with them. In fact, there is an entire section of the Pillsbury website devoted to them. There are some FABULOUS recipes on there.

The folks at My Get Together were kind enough to send me four recipes to try, and the guests at my Birthday Party LOVED them. Here is what we tried…

PIGLETS IN THE BLANKET

These are the traditional tiny hot dogs wrapped in crescent rolls and baked. They were the first treat to go and the favorite of the younger set. You just can’t go wrong with these. However, typically when I make these I make them with Grands Flaky Layer Biscuits. I like them better for some reason.

 

CRESCENT WRAPPED BRIE

So, I LOVE brie. Like REALLY LOVE brie. It’s my favorite savory treat. This was so easy to do and looked so elegant. The website even has a tutorial on how to wrap it. This will be a hit at your next gathering for sure.

 

BACON-CHEDDAR PINWHEELS

These were a real hit. They were a recipe that nobody at the party had tried before, and were very good. They are so easy to make and VERY yummy to eat.

 

CRESCENT LAYER BARS

Oh.My.Word! These were SO GOOD. Like sinfully so. Amazingly easy to make, and hard to resist, these were the most popular recipe on the table. I took the rest to work today, and they disappeared quickly. One thing I did a little different was to use parchment paper so they were easier to get out of the pan.

If you have a holiday gathering coming up, I can highly recommend all of these recipes!

  2. Just can’t go wrong with pillsbury crescent rolls! All sound delish!

    • They were ALL SO GOOD! Life is easier with crescent rolls.

  3. These all look great, but if you substitute the bacon for sausage and add jalepenos or without jalepenos to the bacon-cheddar pinwheels, I bet they would be a hit too! I used to work at a bakery that sold sausage and cheese biscuits and jalepeno and cheese biscuits and we always sold out of them within the first hour!

    • That sounds awesome! I might have to try that during the holidays!

  4. The layered bars would be good with a graham cracker crust as well.

    • Oh! They would! Yummy!
