Editor’s Picks: The Undiscovered Recipes You Need to Make

Updated March 19, 2020
We love these easy (and fun!) recipes so much, we just couldn’t bear to let them fly under the radar any longer. Try these undiscovered, underrated recipes for yourself and see why our Pillsbury editors can’t get enough of them.
"Did the idea of this flavor combination sound weird at first? Yes. But when I finally tasted strawberry-pretzel salad—with sweet berries, salty-crunchy pretzels and fluffy, smooth cream cheese in every bite—it all made sense, and these sugar cookie thumbprints capture those flavors exactly. Our genius kitchen consultant Tenley figured out that if you combined the crushed pretzels with sugar and melted butter before rolling balls of cookie dough in them, the pretzel pieces would stay perfectly crisp, golden and crunchy during baking. In fact, just typing this makes me want to bake a batch!"

“I love that I can make this kid-friendly favorite without ever having to turn on the oven! The combination of gooey, melty cheese with a savory hot dog wrapped in a flaky, buttery crescent roll, all grilled to perfection, just cannot be beat. Already dreaming of plans to make these as a special dinner outside one night with my family this summer.”

“Anybody who works with me knows how obsessed I am with finding the next greatest burger. These tasty Bacon Cheeseburger Biscuit Bombs skip out on a traditional old bun and instead use a delicious Pillsbury™ biscuit as the base. I love filling them with my favorite burger toppings, like crispy bacon and cheddar cheese. Served with my favorite sliced pickles and ketchup, these burgers are gone in seconds at my house.”

“Ask anyone what their favorite desserts are on a hot summer day and they’ll probably rank ice cream pretty high on the list. I am definitely one of those people, but I also need a little something extra to take the treat over the top. Stacking my favorite ice cream flavors with waffled chocolate chip sweet biscuits really takes the classic treat to the next level, and it tastes so much better than the ice cream sandwiches you find in the freezer aisle!”

"Our Lemon-Strawberry Crescent Roll-Ups are my favorite summertime treat! With every bite, you get the perfect combination of flaky crescents we all know and love, and a sweet filling made with fresh strawberries and lemon (not to mention how easy they are to assemble)!"

"I love this summery slab pie because it comes together with just five ingredients I usually have on hand. It's quick, it's easy, it's cheap—what more can you ask for in a dinner?"

"When the weather finally warms up, there’s nothing quite like enjoying breakfast on the deck or patio. This recipe is great because you can make it the night before—then just wake up, pour a cup of coffee and soak up the sunshine. Plus, you can’t go wrong with sweet, tangy berries buried in fluffy cinnamon rolls!"
