Happy Day Before Thanksgiving Baking Day Everyone!
I love the day before Thanksgiving! It is a day dedicated to making all of the wonderful baked goods that we will enjoy stuffing ourselves with on Thanksgiving Day! The rolls, the pies, putting together the stuffing...whatever our family loves to eat on the day that we give thanks for all that we have. #givethanks
BUT, let's face it. Sometimes, time gets away from you and maybe you need something quick for an appetizer or the rolls burned or you just need something quick to tide your family over until they can eat all of the great stuff that will be on the menu on Thursday. There are a myriad of reasons that refrigerated crescent rolls might come into play during this busy season. The great thing is that these crescent rolls are easy to get into the oven and they taste pretty good! And the BONUS is that you get to pop that cardboard tube open! Who doesn't get a kick out of that?
Instead of plain crescent rolls right out of the tube, it's easy to make them just a little more special. Here are a couple of ways that we have found to take the normal refrigerated crescent roll over the top!
Pumpkin Butter Crescent Rolls
A few weeks ago, Lindsey shared her recipe for Crock Pot Pumpkin Butter. It is really delicious stuff! Maddy figured out that Pillsbury Original Crescent Rolls are vegan, so she told me that a great way to eat them is to spread the Pumpkin Butter on them and bake them like that. I gave it a try! They were eaten up in no time! (Not just by me!)
If you haven't made your own pumpkin butter, you can alwayspurchase some!
When I filled these rolls, I didn't always roll them in the traditional way. Sometimes I rolled them backwards and made a bundle, trying to keep the filling from leaking out. They seemed to work either way.
Here are some other spreads that I think would be delicious spread inside a crescent:
Apple-Brie-Rosemary Crescent Rolls
If you have a little more time to whip out these rolls, you will love them! They make a great appetizer or addition to a simple meal like soup.
Have a wonderful and happy Thanksgiving everyone! We will see you back next week! We have a lot of wonderful holiday projects and recipes in store.
