Pillsbury Grands

Have any of you seen the Pillsbury commercial whereby you can make a mini pizza with the Grand biscuits?

Well I decided to try it. I went to the Pillsbury site one day and looked at the instructions. So when I went shopping, I bought one can of the Grands. So I made them a little while ago. Real easy. I used some jar pasta sauce. Had the pepperoni, and moz. cheese. I also had some Romano cheese for grating.

Not bad for a quick meal for one person. I will do this again. Pillsbury had some other suggestions and I may just try some of them. But since I do have a recipe for pizza sauce, I will make a big jar of it and keep it on hand. Each little pizza takes two large spoonfuls of sauce.

I do have a large pizza tray with holes in it. So it did get the bottom crust crispy. Which is the way I like it. Other wise it would have just been bread.

Out of five stars, I give it four. Only because the crust is not from a yeast product.

I haven't seen the commercial, but I've heard of the method.
It's been on my to-do list for a while. I think I first heard of it on a camping site.

Years ago we used the crescent rolls to make a quickie pizza.

Just unrolled them and put the toppings on.

They were a good late night movie snack but, they got kind of expensive.

Do you use the frozen ones or the refrigerated ones?

Next time I come across a coupon I will give it a try.

Addie, you can also make Danish with the grandkids for a wonderful Sunday breakfast with Grands.
Here is how the boys and I did it:

Flatten the grands (like you would for pizza).
Mix cream cheese with enough sugar to make it sweet.
Spread it on the flattened grands.
Put a spoonful of lemon curd (or jelly) in the middle and bake.

My six year old grandson was SO proud of himself after making these!

That might be a nice dessert pastry, but it is nothing like Danish pastry,

grumbles the Dane who hates the term "a Danish"

I use them to make quick, and remarkably tasty, doughnuts.

I take my apple corer tool and cut a hole in the middle of the biscuit, stretch it with my fingers and drop the "grands" doughnut into hot oil to fry, then after draining them I dust them with cinnamon sugar.

Pretty quick and realistic doughnuts.

My mum used to do that with regular Pillsbury biscuits. I don't remember what she used to make the holes, but she deep fried those too and we loved them. She usually just dusted them with confectioner's sugar.
