**This recipe makes 4 pastries**
Okay, no need to beat around the bush on this one. I love Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. I welcome any easy short cut when it comes to baking. Making doughs are not my strong suit, Over the years I have experimented with this dough and have come up with some really good, quick, and easy recipes. I try to always keep a tube of the rolls and the crescent sheet in the fridge. Having three daughters, I have found myself in a pinch come lunch time on more than one occasion and this dough has come to my rescue!
These pastries are one of the many recipes that have stuck around! They are super easy and quick to make. It is fun to play around with the filling as well! Instead of jam, you could always try chocolate!
- 1 tube Pillsbury Crescent Sheet
- 1 tbsp Cinnamon Sugar
- Butter (I usually use the spray butter)
- 2-3 tbsp Flour
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
- Grease a baking sheet so that the pastries will not stick. I usually line the pan with foil and then spray it with Pam.
- Grab a rolling pin and sprinkle about 1/2-1 tbsp of flour on a cutting board or whatever surface you will be rolling the dough out on.
- Open the dough and roll it out laying it flat over the floured surface.
- Sprinkle about the same amount of flour on top of the dough and proceed to roll it out. Not too thin but not too thick.
- Cut the dough in half.
- Take one-half and cut it into fourths. They should be as equal as you can manage.
- Put about 1 tbsp of a jam in the center of two of the dough squares.
- Spray or brush edges of jammed dough with butter and place the other dough square on top. Crimp edges with a fork.
- This section will make 2 pastries.
- You will need to repeat steps 3-9 (with the exception of opening the tube) with the other half of the dough.
- Place the pastries onto the baking pan and spray or brush with butter.
- Sprinkle each pastry with cinnamon sugar.
- Bake for 10-11 minutes.
*Make Sweet Butter Glaze and brush on top! It is best to do this while the pastry is still hot.*
Let Cool and enjoy!
