  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Line large cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper. In small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of the Parmesan cheese, the chives and pepper.
  • 2
    Unroll dough onto work surface. If using crescent rolls, firmly press perforations to seal. Brush dough with 1 tablespoon of the melted butter. Sprinkle Parmesan mixture on top of dough, all the way to edges. Fold long sides of dough in half lengthwise; press to make 13x5-inch dough rectangle.
  • 3
    Using pizza cutter, cut dough rectangle in half crosswise to get two 6 1/2x5-inch rectangles; cut each half lengthwise into 12 equal strips to make 24 total. Pinch together ends of three strips, and braid the dough strips. Pinch ends together, spiraling into round shape, and pinching ends under. Place on cookie sheet; repeat for remaining dough strips.
  • 4
    Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until golden brown and baked through. Brush remaining 1 tablespoon melted butter on top of baked rounds; sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese and, if desired, additional chopped fresh chives. Serve warm.

Expert Tips

  • For extra flavor, stir 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder into remaining 1 tablespoon melted butter before brushing on top of baked crescent rounds.
  • Don't have a pizza cutter? Use a sharp knife, and pull straight through dough without lifting up.
