Ingredient of the Week, March 13: Crescent Rolls
Crescent rolls are the modern, quick and easy equivalent of croissants, which have been around since 1838, concocted by an Austrian in a Viennese Bakery in Paris. Croissants have become the best-known type of French pastry in much of the world. Leave it to the Pillsbury Company, and the Pillsbury Dough Boy, introduced in 1965, to make this modern convenience product, the crescent roll, into a staple on dinner tables, and then become used in many different recipes. How do you use these rolls? Do you use them to make a form of hot pocket sandwiches, or are they the base of a dessert for you? Please share your ideas and recipes.
