Inspired by a traditional Italian dish using leftover risotto, our easy version is made with crescents.
Updated Oct 16, 2018

Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F.
  • 2
    Make rice as directed on package. Remove from heat; stir in cream cheese spread until melted.
  • 3
    While rice is cooking, separate dough into 16 triangles. Place eggs and bread crumbs in separate bowls. Place 2 tablespoons rice mixture in center of each triangle. Wrap dough around rice mixture to form ball, sealing well so rice mixture is completely covered.
  • 4
    Dip balls into eggs; coat with bread crumbs. Place on 2 ungreased cookie sheets.
  • 5
    Bake about 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 15 minutes; serve warm.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Leftover rice from last night's dinner? Use that and make arancini balls! The entire recipe uses 2 cups of rice; so feel free to cut the recipe in half if you have only 1 cup left.
