Pretzel Crescent Rolls

Andi from Betty Crocker's Andi Cooks shares a recipe for crescent rolls. As a snack or a breakfast treat, these little pastries will become a quick hit at your house. They are like a pretzel with the dark brown, salty crust and then like a crescent roll, too, because of the tender, flaky interior.

Expert Tips

Pretzels get their delicious, dark brown crust from being poached in a high Ph solution, and in this case it’s the baking soda added to the water.

For a new flavor twist, substitute shredded fresh Parmesan cheese for the salt.
