What would you do with Crescent Recipe Creations?

I bought a can of this and it has been sitting in the fridge waiting for inspiration. Basically it is little squares of cresent dough. I know there are a million things that could be done with them, but I can't ever seem to get inspired to do anything with them.

What would you put on them or how would you use them?

I'd roll it out brush with melted butter, spinkle with lots of cinnamin and sugar

roll it back up

slice it up in to "rolls"

Bake

cool just a little and then frost with a powdered sugar frosting

Then hide in the closet and eat them all before the rest of the family came home.

I cut mine into strips, twisted and wrapped them into pretzel shapes and tossed on some sea salt. Its one of their recipe examples. Excellent

I also want to use them next to make homemade fruit pastries; maybe next using a burrito mix in a sealed rectangular pastry.

I wonder if anyone has tried using the dough in a Panini Sandwich Press?

The pretzel idea is way cool! So I take it that you have tried these before?

We like to roll them around BBQ'd chicken breasts and bake, yum.
Someone else on here once posted (I think) of using them in camping pie tins (the ones that close up) by sprinkling with sugar on the outside (and maybe brushing butter on em), putting fruit filling in the center, then closing it up and cooking it. Basically I think she left them in the square shape and rolled somewhat with a roller to get rid of the line in the middle that makes them into triangles. Think fruit pie completely surrounded by the 'crust'.

OK I'm boring. I just make 'em into crescent rolls and eat 'em. Although wrapping cocktail weiners has been mentioned in our house it hasn't happened. Too much work IMO.

Make a veggie appetizer pizza. Just bake the crust on a cookie sheet and mix mayo, sour cream and dry ranch. Spread on cooled crust. Add veggies of your choice. I usually add green and red peppers, broccoli, green onions and sometimes shredded cheese.

Oh! the little pizza's sound yummy.

I am a pocket kinda girl. I like spinach and cream cheese with garlic or maybe crab and cream cheese, with a sweet and sour sauce.

That sounds really good Avlynn!

Maybe I can make something different for each little square!
