Whether you fill, fold or devour them straight from the oven, it’s a fact that everyone loves crescents. MORE+ LESS-
15 Ways to Dress Up Crescents

  1. Cheesy Taco Crescents Roll up a pinch of shredded Cheddar inside your crescent dough and then sprinkle with taco seasoning mix for a spicy twist on the classic crescents. (Prepare your pan with nonstick cooking spray for easier clean up.) 
  2. Swirled Crescent Bun Make four diagonal cuts into your crescent dough from the small point to the widest end, leaving about half an inch of connecting dough at the point of the triangle. Roll alongside the longest edge into a tube shape. Circle the dough into a swirl, tucking the fat end underneath. Bake as directed, about 10 minutes in an oven preheated to 375°F. 
  3. Sun-Dried Tomato Crescents Make a (five ingredient!) Italian version of crescents with a cheesy tomato filling and a poppyseed topper that only looks fancy. 
  4. Cheese Crescent Triangles These little bites can be prepped up to two hours in advance so you’re not stressing at the last minute. 
  5. Cheesy Pinwheels with Italian Dip Serve ‘em with dip as an appetizer, or ditch the sauce and serve them as a side bread with your main course. No complaints here! 
  6. Wheat Stalk Bread (or Pan d’Epi) You can make our easy version by using kitchen scissors to make staggered cuts into a “loaf” of still-rolled-up crescent dough. Pull apart the “stalks” and bake 14 to 16 minutes in a 375°F oven. 
  7. Mini Crescent Dogs It’s not the holidays until the mini C-dogs have arrived. 
  8. Chive Crescents Make your crescents feel extra-homemade with a simple brush of butter and sprinkle of herbs before baking. 
  9. Cheesy Sriracha Corn Dog Poppers Kick up the flavor of crescent dogs with everyone’s favorite condiment and a quick roll in cornmeal. 
  10. Spinach, Artichoke and Feta Bites Mini crescent cups hold flavorful spinach-artichoke dip. You won’t miss the chips! 
  11. Easy Crescent Stars Start with a Crescent Dough Sheet and cut into six even squares. Starting at each point, cut toward the center of the dough, leaving a good inch between the cut from the opposite point. (Think of it as an “x” without the cuts touching each other.) Then fold every other point into the center to create a pinwheel. Press corners firmly down before baking – 9 to 12 minutes at 375°F should do it. 
  12. Sausage-Cream Cheese Crescent Bundles Consider making a double batch! These three-ingredient bites are so flavorful and delicious your guests won’t be able to resist going back for just one more. 
  13. Easy Parmesan Crescents Add Parm inside and on top of your crescents for an easy-yet-special addition to the breadbasket. 
  14. Bacon-Cheddar Pinwheels This four-star recipe has more than 200 member reviews. You can’t argue that that! 
  15. Easy Cheesy Rosemary Crescents Simply roll up string cheese and herbs inside your crescent for an extra special, extra easy side.
