ONE DAY LEFT: Win a Crock-Pot 6-Qt Express Pressure Cooker! →

While we love a good homemade meal or dessert from scratch, sometimes we just don’t have the time (or energy) to get it all together and out on the table for dinner, especially on those busy weeknights and last minute parties! That’s why we love finding little shortcuts here and there to help with food prep. Enter: crescent rolls. Pre-packaged, refrigerated dough has got to be the best thing to happen to the kitchen since sliced bread, don’t you agree? There are so many ways to use crescent rolls, we’ve collected just a few of our favorite dishes. Go ahead and try one of these tried and true recipes tonight!
