Photo Description:

Here you can see a freshly baked batch of crescent rolls. Crescent roll dough is versatile and you can stuff it, flavor it, cook it plain or use it as a base for other appetizers. In this recipe the filling goes on the dough before it is rolled up, then the slices are baked in the oven, so you end up with pinwheels and people will be able to see the filling. Crescent roll dough can be stored in the freezer and then simply thawed when necessary, which is why many home cooks like to keep some on hand just in case they need to make a last minute appetizer.
