Pillsbury Crescents


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3/4 cup diced onions
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 can (8 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Original Crescent Rolls (8 Count)
  • 2 teaspoons poppy seed
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seed


  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheet with silicone nonstick baking mat or spray with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In 8-inch skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions and garlic; cook, stirring frequently, until onions are translucent, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat; cool 10 minutes before continuing.
  • 3
    Unroll dough. Separate into 2 long rectangles; press seams to seal. Spoon onion mixture onto 1 rectangle, spreading evenly. Place second rectangle over top; press edges to seal rectangles together.
  • 4
    Cut rectangle into 8 long strips. Sprinkle poppy seed and sesame seed over dough, pressing lightly so seeds stick to dough. Carefully twist each strip several times; place on cookie sheet about 1 inch apart.
  • 5
    Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until tops are golden brown. Serve warm or cool.

  • You can replace the seeds on top with grated Parmesan cheese, if you prefer.
  • These would make the perfect accompaniment to any meal, especially your Thanksgiving dinner!
