50 BEST Crescent Dough Sheet Recipes

Crescent dough sheets are one of my favorite ingredients to work with because they are so versatile.

I love finding new recipes to try, so I wanted to share some of my favorites from around the web.

Here are 50 of the best crescent dough sheet recipes:

1. Bacon Jalapeno Crescent Roll Ups

These roll ups are easy to make and they’re delicious, too.

You’ll need some cream cheese, a crescent dough sheet, bacon, cheddar cheese and jalapenos—oh yeah, and a toothpick to hold it all together.

You can make these for any occasion—game day parties or just hanging out with friends—or just for yourself when you need something quick and easy.

The best part about this recipe is that it only takes about 15 minutes from start to finish (if you’re quick).

And that’s not even counting the time it takes to cook your bacon!

So if you’ve got some extra time on your hands and want something tasty to eat? Give this one a try!

2. Meatball Stromboli

I think this recipe is so, so good because it’s easy to put together and tastes great.

The meatballs are flavorful but not overpowering, and they go really well with the sauce.

I like to take the time to sauté the onions in butter before adding them to the saucepan with the other ingredients, which makes them taste even better than they would if you just threw them into the saucepan raw.

If you’re looking for something a little more filling than just meatballs on pizza dough, this is definitely a good choice.

It can be eaten as an appetizer or main course depending on how much you stuff into each slice!

3. Strawberry Danish Breakfast Braid

This recipe is quite easy and delicious, and you’ll wonder why you ever wanted to go out to breakfast before.

The crescent dough sheets are soft and buttery, and the filling is sweet and tart—just like a danish should be.

I love making this recipe because it’s a great way to use up some of those strawberries that have been sitting in your fridge for way too long.

You can also use any kind of jam or jelly that strikes your fancy, so there’s no need to worry about running out—just make sure it’s not too runny!

You can even use different kinds of berries if you want something other than strawberry flavor—blueberries would be great!

  1. Once you’ve got the dough and filling ready, just roll out the crescent dough sheets and spread them with some jam on each side.
  2. Then, roll them up into a long log shape (like cinnamon rolls).
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until golden brown on top.
  4. When they’re done baking, cut them into slices and serve warm with milk!

4. Baked Ham and Cheese Roll-ups

I love this recipe because it’s so easy to make.

I usually make it when I’m having people over for dinner, but it also works well for a quick lunch on the go.

I like using crescent rolls, as they’re already made and can be found in most grocery stores.

Plus, they’re super versatile: you can stuff them with anything you want!

The first time I made these roll-ups, I used leftover ham and everything bagel seasoning.

It was delicious!

But really, any type of meat or cheese would work here.

Try using pepperoni and mozzarella or chicken (see also: Crescent Dough Sheet Recipes with Chicken) and cheddar instead of ham and cheese—they’re all just as good!

This recipe is also great if you want something that’s easy to customize based on what’s on hand in your kitchen at the time.

If you don’t have any leftover ham on hand but do have some leftover chicken breast from last night’s dinner?

Use that instead!

Don’t worry about how much is left over—just use what you got!

When it comes down to it, this meal is about making sure everyone gets fed quickly and easily without having to think too hard about it before heading out the door in the morning.

5. Fruit Filled Pastry

This is another crescent dough sheet recipe that I’ve found to be super tasty, and I’ve been able to make it my own over time.

I like using cream cheese, can pie filling, crescent dough sheet, apple, lemon juice.

The flavor is delicious—not too sweet but still flavorful enough to stand out from the other appetizers on your table.

It’s also easy to prepare; all you have to do is cut up some apples and spread some cream cheese on each piece of crescent pastry before adding the apple slices.

You can make this recipe vegan by using non-dairy cream cheese and substituting vegan pie filling for the regular kind!

6. Strawberry Cheesecake Crescent Roll-Ups

Strawberry Cheesecake Crescent Roll-Ups

These roll-ups are one of my favorite things to make, and I think you should consider making them too.

  1. The first thing I do is take out a pack of crescent rolls and let them thaw for about an hour. Sometimes I’ll even leave them in the fridge overnight.
  2. Then, when it’s time for dessert, I open up the can of cream cheese and start squishing it into a bowl.
  3. Next comes a spoonful of strawberry jam, just enough to make the whole thing spreadable but not so much that it turns into a glob.
  4. Then I use my fingers or a pastry brush to spread this mixture onto each triangle-shaped piece of dough until it’s completely covered.
  5. Finally, I sprinkle powdered sugar on top with a pinch of fresh strawberries for added color and flavor!

You can customize this recipe however you like—it’s great with chocolate chips instead of strawberries or if you want to use different flavors of jams and jellies instead of cream cheese (try peanut butter!).

It would also be fun to add some coconut flakes or nuts on top before baking!

7. Stromboli Crescent Braid

This is a great one to make if you’re looking for something filling and tasty to make with your family or friends.

The recipe starts with crescent dough sheets, which you can find in the refrigerated section at most grocery stores.

You’ll also need pizza sauce, provolone cheese, sesame seeds, and mozzarella cheese.

You can use any type of pizza sauce you like—and if you don’t have any handy, there are plenty of brands that sell jars of sauce in the grocery store.

Once you have everything assembled, it’s time to start making your dish!

  1. Begin by laying out your crescent sheet so that it forms an oval shape.
  2. Spread some pizza sauce over the dough sheet, then sprinkle on some sesame seeds and mozzarella cheese.
  3. Next comes the provolone cheese—you can add as much or as little as you’d like!
  4. Finally, roll up the sheet into a crescent-shaped braid (this will be easier if your hands are wet).
  5. Bake for about 15 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit until golden brown on top and bottom (just keep an eye on it!).
  6. Serve warm with extra sauce on top!

8. Breakfast Hand Pies

I love making breakfast hand pies, and I know you will too.

They’re super easy to make and so delicious!

  1. First, start with a crescent dough sheet.
  2. Next, add some colby jack cheese, cooked ham, and eggs. The eggs are optional—you can leave them out if you want to—but they make it taste even better!
  3. Once you’ve got your filling all mixed together and ready to go, roll out the dough until it’s about 1/4″ thick.
  4. Cut out circles using a cookie cutter or drinking glass, then spoon on some of your filling into the center of each circle.
  5. Fold over the edges and crimp them together gently with a fork (or use two spoons).
  6. Bake at 375 degrees F for 15-20 minutes until golden brown on top.

That’s it! You’re done!

This recipe is perfect for breakfast or brunch because it has eggs in it (eggs are always good for breakfast), but I think it would also be great as an after-school snack.

9. Five-Ingredient Crescent Cheesy Bread

Five-Ingredient Crescent Cheesy Bread

This recipe is super simple: just use a can of crescent rolls, marinara sauce, parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder.

Just roll out the dough into a rectangle shape, spread on your sauce and seasonings, then sprinkle on your cheese. Roll it up and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes.

I like to serve this with a side salad (maybe some fresh mozzarella balls) when we have friends over for dinner. It’s a great alternative to pizza!

You can also customize this recipe by adding in things like pepperoni or sausage if you want something heartier—or maybe even some broccoli florets if you’re trying to sneak some veggies in!

10. Cheeseburger Crescent Rolls

I’ve been making these for years, and they are so good!

It’s like a cheeseburger in a roll—but better, because it’s not messy or greasy.

You can even make them ahead of time and reheat them (which is great when you’re having guests over).

The recipe is simple: ground beef, crescent dough, cheddar cheese, sesame seeds and mustard.

But the flavor is out of this world.

It’s so satisfyingly meaty, with a hint of sweetness from the mustard and saltiness from the cheese and ground beef.

And then there’s that crunchy crescent dough—it just makes it all come together perfectly.

I make these a lot for game day parties or family get-togethers because they’re really easy to customize based on your favorite toppings and fillings.

And they’re pretty much always a hit with everyone!

11. Crescent Cherry Cheesecake Cobbler

Crescent Cherry Cheesecake Cobbler

This is quite a simple recipe: just cream cheese, cherry pie filling, and vanilla extract.

You can probably even use store-bought cherry pie filling if you’re in a rush.

I like to add in some dried cranberries with the cherries because it adds an extra layer of sweetness and texture that really brings this dish together.

I also like to make sure my cream cheese is softened so that it can easily be spread across the crescent rolls—but this isn’t necessary if you’re okay with working with cold cream cheese.

This recipe is great for parties or get-togethers because it feeds a lot of people at once while still feeling like something special—plus, most people don’t think to make their own crusts anymore!

It’s also easy enough that anyone could make it on their own (and they’ll feel amazing doing so).

12. Sausage, Mushroom & Spinach Pizza Braid

I love how easy this recipe is to make!

If you have a small family or if you’re just cooking for yourself, it’s a great way to use up leftovers from other meals.

You can also use any kind of pizza sauce and any kind of cheese that you like best.

The best thing about this recipe is that it can be customized to fit your tastes and preferences.

For example, if you don’t like mushrooms or spinach, feel free to leave them out!

Or if you don’t care for mild sausage, swap it with something spicier.

You could even try adding some peppers or onions if you wanted!

This recipe would be perfect for both casual gatherings with friends and fancy dinner parties with family members who live far away from each other but still want a taste of home in their bellies when they’re missing out on all the good food their mom makes every day at home (haha).

This dish is super simple to make—just follow these steps:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Cut the crescent dough sheet into four equal pieces.
  3. Spread some pizza sauce on each piece of dough.
  4. Add mozzarella cheese and then add some sliced baby bella mushrooms on top of that.
  5. Put it in the oven and bake until it’s golden brown (about 15 minutes).
  6. Then take it out and let it cool for about 5-10 minutes before eating!

13. Baked Ham and Cheese Pinwheels

Another one of my go-to recipes is baked ham and cheese pinwheels, made with crescent rolls, gouda cheese, black forest ham, poppy seeds, and dijon mustard.

It’s like a giant sammie that you can make in just minutes!

The best part about this recipe is that it’s all about the ingredients you choose—you can totally customize it depending on what you want out of your food:

  • If you want something more savory, try adding some chopped green onions or roasted red peppers.
  • If you want something sweeter and more decadent, add some dried cranberries or blueberries.
  • If you’re looking for something extra cheesy and rich, try shredding some Fontina and mixing it in with the other ingredients before spreading everything out on the crescent roll sheet!

14. Philly Cheesesteak Crescent Braid

Philly Cheesesteak Crescent Braid

Here’s another crescent dough sheet recipe that I think you should consider making.

It’s absolutely delicious.

It starts with deli roast beef and crescent rolls, but it’s not just any roast beef—it’s marinated in olive oil and green pepper, so it has a little extra flavor!

Then all you have to do is brush the rolls with egg wash and bake them for about 10 minutes at 400 degrees F.

I love to eat this recipe as a snack or appetizer at parties, but it’s also great as an easy dinner when I’m having friends over.

It’s also nice because you can customize it however you want: add mushrooms or tomatoes if you like them in your cheesesteak sandwiches, or swap out the roast beef for chicken if that’s what floats your boat (no pun intended).

15. Buffalo Chicken Rollup Bake

Buffalo Chicken Rollup Bake

This one is simple—just cream cheese, ranch dressing, rotisserie chicken, and a crescent dough sheet—but it’s so delicious.

The cream cheese goes great with the ranch dressing and buffalo hot sauce, and I love the combination of flavors.

It’s also a great way to use up leftover rotisserie chicken from your grocery store or even just plain diced chicken breast or thighs if you don’t have access to one.

You can customize this recipe in a lot of ways: you could add veggies like mushrooms or green peppers to bulk it up, or maybe some corn kernels if you want something crunchy (I love adding those).

You can also use different types of hot sauce if you don’t like buffalo sauce—I like using sriracha instead!

This is a great recipe for parties because it makes enough servings for several people without taking up too much space on the table.

You could also make individual servings in muffin tins—they would be great for potlucks!

16. Cranberry Turkey Crescent Ring

The recipe is super awesome (and quite simple): just crescent rolls, berry cranberry sauce, swiss cheese, cooked turkey, and spinach leaves.

  1. I like to warm up the crescent rolls first, then layer on some of the cranberry sauce before adding the turkey and cheese (and spinach).
  2. Then I wrap everything up in foil and bake for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

I love this recipe because it’s so versatile—you can add whatever ingredients you like!

Just think about what flavors go well together:

  • Maybe try different kinds of cheeses or meats?
  • Maybe other fruits besides cranberries?
  • Or maybe even some vegetables?

This recipe is great for just about any occasion—it’s kid-friendly and adult-friendly alike—and it will definitely impress your friends (and family).

17. Cinna-Minis (Miniature Cinnamon Rolls)

Cinna-Minis (Miniature Cinnamon Rolls)

These are super easy to make, and they’re delicious.

The best part is that you can prepare them in advance and just heat them up when you need them.

I like to make these for breakfast or brunch because they’re so yummy, but they also work well as an afternoon snack or even dessert.

The ingredients are simple: crescent dough sheets, brown sugar, powdered sugar, butter, cinnamon.

You can add whatever other toppings you want—different kinds of nuts or chocolate chips—and customize these to taste however you like!

This recipe works great for any occasion: birthdays, holidays… even Tuesday!

If someone has dietary restrictions or allergies, though, make sure to double-check that your ingredients are safe for them (or ask someone who knows).

18. Taco Braid

This recipe has so much flavor!

All you need is ground beef, crescent roll dough, taco seasoning and cheese.

I like to add some other ingredients too, like mushrooms or onions.

It’s also great with sour cream on the side!

You can use this recipe for any occasion—it’s perfect for when you’re having friends over or just want something quick and delicious for your family’s dinner.

19. Sheet-Pan Hawaiian Pineapple Grilled Cheese

This recipe is amazing for two reasons.

  • First, it’s super easy to make! All you need is a crescent dough sheet, sliced ham, mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese, butter and a sheet pan. You can even customize it by adding different ingredients like bell peppers or mushrooms if you want to give it a more hearty feel.
  • The second reason why this recipe is so great is because of how delicious it tastes! The crescent dough adds a nice crunch to the sandwich while the pineapple adds sweetness and tanginess that balances out the salty meat and cheese perfectly.

If you love grilled cheese sandwiches then you should definitely give this one a try!

20. Cheesesteak Crescent Braid

Philly Cheesesteak Crescent Braid

This recipe is great for parties, or just for dinner any night of the week.

It’s really simple to make, too—just follow these steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Open up your package of crescent rolls and lay one sheet out flat on a baking sheet or cutting board so that it’s ready to go when it’s time to bake them (you can freeze the rest in an airtight container for another time).
  3. Cut up some roast beef deli meat into small pieces, then warm it up in a skillet with some olive oil over medium heat until cooked through (add green peppers if you want to give it more flavor).
  4. Once that’s done, drizzle some egg on top of each piece of meat so that when it bakes it will cook into a nice golden color and give the bread extra crunchiness!
  5. Roll out your second sheet of crescent dough so that it covers the first one completely; pinch together all four corners on top so that they stay connected during baking time (this will help prevent your bread from falling apart during baking).
  6. Cut out a square shape in the middle of your dough, then place your meat and egg mixture inside and top with cheese.
  7. Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes or until golden brown on top.
  8. Serve warm!

21. Crescent Beef Burritos

Crescent Beef Burritos

Are you a fan of burritos?

I am! And I have a recipe suggestion for you: Crescent Beef Burritos.

They’re super easy to make and can be customized to your taste.

  1. First, you’ll need a package of crescent rolls and some ground beef.
  2. Then, get creative! Add refried beans, sour cream, and taco seasoning mix to the beef and roll it all up in a tortilla shell or crescent dough sheet.
  3. Bake it until golden brown, then top with sour cream if you want!

I like to throw in some extra ingredients like diced onions and peppers (or anything else you might like) because they help give the dish more flavor.

You could also add shredded cheese or lettuce if you wanted even more variety in your burrito.

And don’t forget about dessert—this would be great topped with ice cream!

These burritos are great for dinner parties or family get-togethers because they’re easy to make ahead of time and then just pop into the oven when everyone’s ready to eat them.

They’re also perfect for game day parties because they’re hearty enough that no one will go hungry after spending all day cheering on their favorite team!

22. Sloppy Joe Crescent Cups

Sloppy Joe Crescent Cups

This recipe is an amazing way to use leftovers and turn them into something fun and new.

To make these bad boys, you’ll need crescent dough sheets, sloppy joe sauce (or any other kind of sauce), ground beef, sliced pickles, and shredded American cheese.

You can find all of those ingredients at the store or even online if you want to skip the trip.

Just make sure you keep an eye on your budget when shopping for ingredients.

  1. Once you’ve got everything ready to go, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and start by layering your crescent sheet with some sloppy joe sauce.
  2. Next add some ground beef on top of that layer, followed by another layer of sloppy joe sauce on top of that one too (because who doesn’t love extra cheesy goodness?).
  3. Then add some more ground beef on top until it looks like there’s enough meat inside your crescent cup before topping off with another layer of sloppy joe sauce again too (because why not?).
  4. After that, add your pickle slices on top and then some shredded American cheese.
  5. Bake your crescent cups in the oven for about 15-20 minutes or until the crescent dough is golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  6. Serve immediately.

23. Blueberry Cream Cheese Breakfast Braid

I have a lot of fun with this one, and it’s perfect for any occasion.

It’s pretty simple to make and is full of delicious flavors that will make your mouth water.

You’ll need crescent dough, cream cheese, powdered sugar, lemon juice and flour.

  1. The first step is to preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Next you’ll want to spread out your crescent rolls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or greased.
  3. Then you can spread the cream cheese overtop of them!
  4. After that comes the powdered sugar, which adds sweetness and texture to the finished product.
  5. Finally, drizzle some lemon juice overtop so it glistens in the oven light as it cooks!
  6. Then all you need to do is bake it for 15 minutes until golden brown on top! And voila—you’re done!

24. Crescent Roll Bacon-Chili Rellenos

Crescent Roll Bacon-Chili Rellenos

I’ve been making these Crescent Roll Bacon-Chili Rellenos for years now, and I love them.

They’re super easy to make (you just need a few ingredients), and they’re great for any occasion.

  1. The first step is making the crescent dough sheets, which you can do ahead of time.
  2. Then you’ll cook your bacon and dice it into small pieces—just make sure to cut off any excess fat or grease before cooking it.
  3. Next, chop up your jalapeno peppers and mix them with boursin cheese, which adds a little creaminess while also helping the pepper flavor stand out.
  4. Fill each crescent sheet with some jalapenos and boursin cheese, then wrap them up like little burritos.
  5. Finally, bake them in the oven until they’re nice and golden brown on top!

I like to serve these with pre-cooked chunky salsa on top—it gives them that extra kick that makes them so delicious!

You could also add some guacamole or sour cream if you wanted an extra layer of flavor.

25. Sheet-Pan Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

The recipe is easy to follow and is something that even the most novice home cooks can do.

All you need is crescent dough, american cheese slices, some cheddar cheese slices, grape tomatoes, and parmesan cheese.

It’s a fun way to get creative with your food and try something new!

The best part about this recipe is how customizable it is.

You can use different kinds of cheeses and toppings depending on your palette.

Maybe you like adding jalapenos or bacon!

That’s great!

Maybe you want to change up the type of bread or roll used for the base—that’s cool too!

You could even use a sandwich bun instead of crescent rolls if that suits your fancy.

I hope this inspires you to try out this recipe for yourself so that we can see what kind of flavor combinations you come up with!

26. Crescent Roll Pizza

Crescent Roll Pizza

This is a great way to use up leftover crescent roll dough, and it tastes amazing.

You’ll need: crescent roll dough, pepperoni, pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, garlic powder

  2. Then I take pepperoni and distribute it evenly over the top of the dough. Next I spread pizza sauce over that.
  3. Then sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and garlic powder.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until everything is melted and warm throughout.

I like to serve this dish with ranch dressing for dipping!

This is also good with marinara sauce if you don’t want to bother with pizza sauce (just spread it on instead of using pepperoni).

You can also add other ingredients like onions or peppers if you’d like!

It’s fun to customize this recipe based on what you have on hand in your kitchen—it’s so easy to do!

27. Garlic Butter Cheesy Breadsticks

  1. You take the crescent dough and spread butter on it (you can use regular butter or garlic butter).
  2. Then sprinkle garlic salt on top of that.
  3. Next add the cheese slices evenly across the surface of your dough sheet.

29. Crunchy Crescent Ham & Havarti Appetizers

Crunchy Crescent Ham & Havarti Appetizers

If you’re looking for a tasty appetizer to serve at your next party, this recipe is sure to please.

They are easy to make and they taste amazing!

All you need is crescent roll dough and some ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry, like poppy seeds, sweet pickle relish, and havarti cheese.

You can use any kind of ham you’d like.

Just make sure it’s thinly sliced so that it bakes in the oven long enough to get crispy on the outside (and not just steamy and soggy).

The sweet pickle relish adds just enough tanginess to balance out all of the other flavors in the recipe.

The best part about this recipe?

It’s so versatile!

You can customize it however you’d like—add more cheese or less; swap out ham for something else; add different spices or herbs—there are so many possibilities!

To make the sheet pan breakfast pizza:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  2. Roll out the crescent dough sheets on a floured surface and place them on your prepared sheet pan in an overlapping pattern so that they form a rectangle about 12″ x 17″. (If you don’t have enough sheets to cover all of the pan, cut some into triangles and use those.)
  3. Spread out your toppings evenly over the dough: first spread some butter evenly over the surface; then arrange your breakfast sausage over it; finally sprinkle on some bacon pieces and shredded cheese.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown around the edges and bubbling in the middle!
  5. Serve immediately with fresh fruit or a green salad on the side!

I love serving these with a side of mashed potatoes or pasta salad.

If I’m feeling fancy, I’ll even make a little gravy out of the drippings from the pan when they’re done cooking.

If you have kids, this is also a great recipe for them because they can help assemble it themselves!

They’ll feel like they’re making dinner!

And when they see their finished product?

They’ll be so proud!

33. Apple Danish Braid

Apple Danish Braid

I know you’re going to love this recipe for Apple Danish Braid.

It’s one of my favorite things to make on the weekends, and it’s sure to become a favorite for you and your family, too.

What You’ll Need:

Ideas for Customizing This Recipe:

  • Replace apples with pears or other seasonal fruits like peaches or berries! You could also try adding some lemon juice and lemon zest along with some chopped nuts like walnuts or pecans too! They would taste great mixed in with some vanilla extract before you roll up your dough too! You can also add some orange zest if you want to go for a more citrusy flavor.
  • Try adding some chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate if you’re feeling adventurous! This would be especially delicious with some cinnamon too. Experiment with different combinations and see which ones you like best!

It’s so easy to make and even easier to eat!

You’ll need:

  • Crescent rolls
  • Liquid smoke (optional)
  • Soy sauce
  • Maple syrup
  • Baby carrots or regular carrots

How to Make It:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  2. Unroll the crescent rolls onto the baking sheet, and cut each roll into 8 triangles. If you want extra crunchy carrots, brush them with liquid smoke before baking them for 10 minutes, flipping halfway through cooking time. If you don’t want to use liquid smoke, just bake them for about 15 minutes until golden brown on both sides.
  3. Remove from oven and set aside to cool for 5 minutes before serving warm or at room temperature! You can also add other ingredients like cheese shreds or bacon bits if you want even more flavor!

36. Brie Bites with Bacon and Asparagus

Brie Bites with Bacon and Asparagus

I love a good crescent dough sheet recipe, but I also love trying new things.

Brie bites with bacon and asparagus is one of my favorite recipes to make for parties—it’s so easy, and it’s always a crowd favorite.

I think you should consider making this recipe because it uses all your favorite ingredients: brie, asparagus, crescent dough, bacon, lemon.

It’s a great way to use up leftovers in your fridge and create something new that will wow your guests (or just yourself).

The best part about this recipe is that you can customize it however you want!

You can add other ingredients like spinach or mushrooms if you want to keep things seasonal or make it vegetarian-friendly; or you can leave out the bacon altogether if you’re going for a vegan version of this classic party dish.

Or maybe you’ll want to try using different cheeses like goat cheese or gorgonzola instead of brie?

37. Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake Bars

Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake Bars

I’m a big fan of this recipe because it’s easy to customize, but it still tastes great no matter what you do to it.

The only ingredients you need are cream cheese, sour cream, crescent dough, powdered sugar, and lemon juice.

You can also add other ingredients if you want—I’ve made it with strawberries and raspberries before!

It’s also really simple to make:

  1. Just mix together all the ingredients except for the blueberries (which you’ll sprinkle on top), then spread them out in an 8×8 pan and bake for about 25 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Then let them cool before cutting them into squares!

38. Chicken Pot Pie Crescent Ring

Chicken Pot Pie Crescent Ring

This recipe is easy to customize and can be made with ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen.

This recipe makes four servings, so it’s great for families or couples.

Ideas for Customizing This Recipe:

  • Switch up the vegetables—try peas instead of corn! Or try using some chopped ham instead of chicken.
  • Add more milk if you want a thinner sauce.
  • Use frozen mixed vegetables instead of fresh ones so that they’re ready to go when you are!

Other Ingredients You Can Add:

  • Try adding some diced potatoes or carrots to make it more hearty.
  • Add some chopped tomatoes for a pop of color and flavor.
  • Add some garlic powder or onion powder to spice up the dish.

39. Quick and Fruity Crescent Waffles

Quick and Fruity Crescent Waffles

I’ve never been a huge fan of waffles, but these are so good that I want to eat them for breakfast every day!

They take just minutes to make, and they’re perfect for when you want something sweet but don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen.

If you love blueberries like I do, then give these a try—they’re quick and easy to customize by adding other fruit or nuts, too.

You can also use different kinds of crescent dough if you prefer another flavor (or if you just don’t have any left).

40. Crescent Veggie Pizza

This pizza is a family favorite.

It’s a great way to get your kids to eat their vegetables, and it’s super easy!

Here are some ideas for customizing this recipe:

  • Use different vegetables. Try bell peppers, mushrooms, zucchini, or eggplant. You can even try adding some meat—deli turkey or ham would be great on here!
  • If you don’t have any crescent rolls in the house, you can use naan bread or frozen pizza dough instead! Just make sure to thaw it first so you can roll it out easily.
  • If you’re not a fan of cream cheese or sour cream, feel free to substitute them with ricotta cheese or Greek yogurt instead!
  • You could also add in some fresh herbs like parsley or chives if you’d like! I like using dried dill weed because it gives the pizza an extra pop of flavor without being overpowering.

41. Crescent Roll Cream Cheese Danishes

Whenever I’m feeling like I need a little pick-me-up, I think about making a crescent roll cream cheese danish.

It’s the perfect way to make sure that we’re getting some delicious and healthy food in our kitchens, and it’s so easy that even the kids can help out!

The ingredients are so simple: fat crescent rolls, cream cheese (I prefer the sugar free kind), pillsbury sugar free cinnamon rolls, sugar free preserves, lemon juice.

  • Ideas for customizing this recipe include adding other fruits to your preserves or even using strawberry preserves instead of cherry preserves.
  • You could also add things like nuts or chocolate chips to your cream cheese filling before baking—whatever makes you happy!
  • Other ingredients you can add to this recipe include brown sugar and cinnamon or even Nutella instead of cherry preserves if you want something sweeter.

42. Raspberry Cream Cheese Danish

Raspberry Cream Cheese Danish

This recipe starts with a crescent dough sheet, which is then filled with cream cheese and raspberry preserves.

The filling is then covered in powdered sugar and baked until golden brown.

The end result is a delicious, flaky, sweet-and-sour treat that you can serve for breakfast or dessert.

I think this is a great recipe because it’s so versatile and easy to customize depending on your tastes.

You can use any kind of jam you want in place of the raspberry preserves—strawberry, apricot, apple… whatever you like!

If you’re feeling adventurous, try adding something savory like bacon bits or chives to the filling.

Or if you’re looking for something healthier, try using fresh fruit instead of preserves and add some cinnamon or nutmeg to the dough before rolling it out into a rectangle shape.

43. Mushroom Spinach Ricotta Crescent Ring

Mushroom Spinach Ricotta Crescent Ring

This recipe is the perfect thing to make for any party or gathering.

It’s simple and easy to make, but it’s also unique and delicious.

It’s made with Pillsbury crescent rolls, ricotta cheese, smoked paprika, red onion, and Italian seasoning.

I think this sounds like a great appetizer!

But what if you want something different?

Well, there are lots of ways you can customize this recipe:

  • For example, you could add ham or substitute spinach for mushrooms.
  • You could also try adding different vegetables (like broccoli) or other kinds of cheese (like Swiss).

44. Cronuts


Cronuts are a fantastic and delicious crescent dough sheet recipe made by filling the dough with vanilla pudding, then frying it until it’s golden brown.

Ideas for Customizing This Recipe:

  • Add chocolate chips to the pudding before frying (or add them after, if you want a crunchier texture)
  • Add chopped nuts or coconut flakes to the mix
  • Use jam instead of pudding for a different flavor profile

Other Ingredients You Can Add:

  • Milk (for extra moisture)
  • Vanilla extract (to enhance the vanilla)
  • Cinnamon (for extra flavor)

45. Apple Strudel

If you’re looking for a new recipe to try, I have one that I think you should consider making.

It’s for an apple strudel, and it’s delicious!

Ideas for Customizing This Recipe:

  • You can use any kind of apples you like, but Granny Smith is a classic choice.
  • If you’re feeling adventurous, try adding some dried cherries or cranberries to the mix.

Other Ingredients You Can Add:

  • If you’re feeling like something sweet, consider adding a dollop of your favorite ice cream on top of this one! It’s even better if you make it from scratch with your favorite ingredients.
  • You can even add some whipped cream on top if you want to take it over the top!
  • Or if you’re looking for something savory instead of sweet, try adding some cheese or bacon bits (or both!) to the mix before baking it in the oven.
