Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons Crisco® Pure Canola Oil
  • 1 can (8 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Original Crescent Rolls (8 Count)
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 3/4 cup thinly sliced green onions (12 medium)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Pillsbury BEST® All Purpose Flour
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seed
  • 1/2 cup apricot spreadable fruit
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • Dash crushed red pepper

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Brush 2 large cookie sheets with canola oil. Unroll crescent dough; separate into 4 rectangles. Firmly press perforations to seal. Brush rectangles with 1 tablespoon of the sesame oil. Top each rectangle with 3 tablespoons green onion; sprinkle with pepper. Starting with 1 long side of each rectangle, roll up. Cut each roll into 3 pieces. Twist each dough piece into 4-inch rope. Lightly coil each rope into small bun. On floured work surface, press each bun into 3-inch round. Place 2 inches apart onto cookie sheets. Brush buns with remaining sesame oil; sprinkle with sesame seed.
