  • 1
    can Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1/4
    cup basil pesto
  • 1/4
    cup sun-dried tomato or roasted red pepper pesto
  • 1
    tablespoon fresh chopped basil leaves


  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Unroll dough; separate into 2 long rectangles. On 1 dough rectangle, spread thin layer of basil pesto. Reroll dough; cut roll into 6 (1/2-inch) slices. Place slices on ungreased cookie sheet.
  • 2
    Repeat with remaining rectangle of dough and tomato pesto.
  • 3
    Bake 10 to 12 minutes or just until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet to serving platter. Garnish with a sprinkle with basil. Serve warm.

  • Go Green—Can’t find a red pesto? No problem! A whole batch of green spirals is just as eye-catching. Double the amount of basil pesto and omit the red pesto to make this recipe work with just one type of filling.
  • Pairing Suggestions—These beautiful appetizers pair nicely with skewers of tomatoes and mozzarella, citrus slices and a medium red wine.
