People love crescent rings. The taco crescent ring is one of the most popular recipes of all time on

Crescent rings, stuffed crescent dough arranged in a circle, can be served:

  • Stuffed with eggs and sausage for breakfast.
  • As a “danish” ring for breakfast and coffee breaks.
  • Instead of sandwiches at lunch.
  • With beer, cocktails and wine.
  • As a general snack.
  • As dinner with a salad.
  • For dessert.
    Whatever flavor you seek—from beef to chicken to Tex-Mex to cheesecake—you can find a recipe for a crescent ring.

    Crescent rolls—pre-sliced puff pastry dough in a tube—were introduced by The Pillsbury Company in the 1960s.

    Pillsbury Crescents became an instant hit for dinner rolls, and introduced America to Poppin’ Fresh, the Pillsbury Doughboy.

    In the years that followed, Pillsbury recipe developers and home cooks turned the dough into much more than rolls, including—but hardly limited to:

  • Casseroles
  • Dumplings
  • Layered tortas
  • Pie crusts
  • Pizza crusts
  • Quiche crusts
  • Roll-ups
  • Turnovers

    They created shapes galore, such as bunnies, Christmas trees and turkeys to pinwheels, roses, swirls and wheat stalks.

    Now, it’s your turn.
