Two words: Don't hate.
I saw this on Pinterest today, and I instantly knew I had to make these to go with our dinner tonight (homemade spaghetti & meatballs... yum!)
The only problem? When Graham picked me up from work, I was starving and not about to make these from scratch. Not to mention the original recipe is in Turkish...) The person who had pinned these mentioned using crescent rolls, so I decided to give that a try. They turned out absolutely delicious and they were SO easy. Literally two ingredients! My husband RAVED about them and I probably ate more than I should have...
Pesto Crescent Rolls
(Recipe adapted from this one)
- Two 11.25 ounce cans of crescent rolls
- Pesto (homemade is best, but I was lazy and used store bought)
- To start, preheat the oven to 375 degrees and spray a cake pan with nonstick cooking spray.
- Unroll the first can of crescents onto a sheet of wax paper. Press the pieces together, making one long sheet of dough.
- Drop spoonfuls of the pesto onto the sheet of dough. Spread the pesto over the dough, leaving a 1/2 inch border of the dough uncovered.
- Carefully roll the dough and pesto up tightly & place in the freezer for about 10 minutes (it makes the dough much easier to cut).
- Cut into the rolled dough with a serrated knife, and arrange the pieces into the pan.
- Repeat with the second can of crescents.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the rolls are golden brown.
