Pesto Crescent Swirls How-To
Dress your appetizer buffet with the colors of the season.
Appetizers are a great way to serve up festive eats. Their bite-sized servings and rich, filling flavors offer an indulgent treat for party-goers. But making a variety of appetizers can be expensive and time consuming. Not with this incredible recipe from Pillsbury®! A tube of Pillsbury® crescent rolls makes cocktail party prep a snap.
To assemble these pretty Pesto Crescent Swirls, all you need is a tube of Pillsbury® crescents, a bottle of traditional basil pesto and a bottle of sun-dried tomato or roasted red pepper pesto.
Open the tube of Pillsbury® crescent dough. Separate into two pieces; unroll each piece. Spread a thin layer of green pesto on one half of the dough and red pesto on the other half.
Roll up the crescents, and then cut into slices (about 1/2-inch thick).
Gently transfer the slices to an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in an oven preheated to 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
Once your spirals are golden brown, put them on a serving platter, sprinkle with fresh chopped basil and serve.
