Throughout my childhood, there were more sleepovers that ended with a frosting-laced Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls breakfast than I can count on both hands. I also have vivid memories of peeling Grands! Flaky Layers Original Biscuits apart, layer by layer, during family dinners. Both memories speak to the reality that as a millennial mom, I’m nostalgically familiar with a few Pillsbury mainstays … those buttery crescents, cinnamon rolls, cookie dough and biscuits.
Until recently, I thought all these mainstays should only be served as is. A biscuit was a biscuit. A crescent, a crescent. I’m quickly learning this isn’t the case. I mean, check out these Grands! Pumpkin Doughnuts and Corn Chip Crescent Tacos. Recipes like these inspired me to take one tube of refrigerated biscuits and make it three different ways.
Waffles with Whipped Cream and Blackberries
I always have frozen spinach on hand (and try to sneak it into my son’s meals). I incorporated it into biscuit dough and added ricotta cheese. Then I heated up oil in a deep pan and threw the biscuits in for a couple minutes. The result? Savory, ooey-gooey fritters. Serve them with marinara dipping sauce on the side and they’re like an updated pizza.
What about you? What are some of the creative ways you use dough?
