Crescent Rolls Recipes, Hints & Videos

Fun and easy, crescent rolls make any meal easier to prepare. An adaptation of the French croissant, it was given its name due its unique shape.  You're probably familiar with frozen and refrigerated crescent rolls, but did you know you can also make them from scratch? Like most bread making processes, it's long and laborious. That's why when you're using them in a recipe, the pre-packaged kind really works best.

Crescent rolls are such a versatile staple in American kitchens that you can make everything from appetizers to desserts with them. And best of all, in most cases it's a quick and easy process that produces spectacular results. So go ahead and impress your family and friends with your culinary skills: only you and the Dough Boy know how easy each recipe was.
