Prep Time



Total Time






can (8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® Crescent Recipe Creations® refrigerated seamless dough sheet
cup granulated sugar
tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
Coarse sugar
  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper. Separate or cut dough into 4 (4x7-inch) rectangles; if using crescent roll dough, firmly press perforations to seal.
  2. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the granulated sugar on cutting board. Place 2 dough rectangles on sugar; press lightly. Brush tops of dough with about 1 tablespoon butter; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar. Place one rectangle on top of another; tightly roll both short sides of the dough rectangle so they meet in the middle.
  3. Repeat step 2.
  4. Using a serrated knife, cut each roll into 8 slices. Place cut side down, 2 inches apart, on parchment-lined cookie sheet. Sprinkle with coarse sugar. Press each slightly to flatten.
  5. Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely.
