Crescent rolls are not just a savory staple at the dinner table. You can also use the refrigerated sheets of dough to make incredible, Instagram-worthy desserts, such as these Oreo-stuffed Crescents.
The best part is that these are incredibly easy. Forget your hand mixer — you don’t even need a spoon for these. Pillsbury’s recipe for this delectable dessert requires just three ingredients: refrigerated Crescent rolls, chocolate chips and, of course, Oreos!
To make this dessert, you just need to form the Crescent rolls around the chocolate sandwich cookies, and then sprinkle the creation with chocolate chips (Pillsbury advises that you use mini chocolate chips). Then, simply bake and enjoy.

Pillsbury has thought of other clever ways to use Crescent rolls to create sweet treats, too. If you’re looking for a pastry that is perfect for brunch, you can turn a can of Crescent rolls or dough sheets into a delicious lemon-cream cheese Crescent ring. Unroll the refrigerated dough and spread the lemon-and-cream cheese mixture (made with cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice and zest) on the unbaked pastry. Then roll and shape the dough into a ring, pinch the edges to seal it shut to keep the lemon-cheesy filling inside and pop it into the oven.
To make it truly brunch-worthy, you’ll want to drizzle the ring in a light glaze. Grind some fresh coffee beans and voilà, you’ve conquered brunch!
