Cheesy Garlic Crescents

I am a fan of mysteries with recipes.  Sometimes I purchase a book I have already read from the library just to have the recipes.

I recently read Raspberry Danish Murder by Joanne Fluke.  Most of her recipes are cookies, and they are fabulous!, but there was a recipe for some Pillsbury Crescent Rolls with a twist.  They were quite tasty and you may want to make them.  I adjusted this recipe for one package, but it is easily doubled, as that was the original recipe.


Cheesy Garlic Crescents

1 can Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 Tablespoon softened butter
1 egg
1/3 cup sharp Cheddar Cheese, shredded


Preheat the oven to 375┬║.  Line a baking sheet with a Silpat baking sheet or parchment paper.


Clean the counter and dry it.  Open the Pillsbury rolls and unroll on the counter.  Don't separate them.


In  small bowl, mix the butter and garlic.  Spread the butter mixture over the dough.


Take the same bowl and break the egg into it.  Whip it with a whisk and add the shredded cheese. Mix.


When I halved this recipe, I didn't make a plan for half of an egg.  So there will be more egg than you need. So use a fork or slotted spoon to transfer the egg and cheese mixture on top of the butter mixture on the dough.


Use a knife to separate the rolls along the original lines.  Roll the crescents from the wide end and place on the prepared sheets and curl them into a crescent.


Bake at 350┬║ for 10 to 12 minutes, until they turn golden brown.


Let cool for a few minutes and serve warm.  We had them with frittatas.  And two kinds of fruit. We had sliced oranges and fermented grapes.


Better known as wine.


  1. I will be making these. Wow! They look/sound delicious.

    1. They make a nice upgrade to a plain old ordinary crescent! And it doesn’t take a lot of time. Unless you stop each step and take pictures, like I did!
