Buttery-Chive Crescent Rolls

It occurred to me as I posted my recipe for Mushroom and Smoked Gouda Soup that I’ve featured my “cheaters” Buttery-Chive Crescent Rolls in the photo along with the soup. These are the same wonderful, buttery rolls I like to serve with just about light soup, opting for warm French Bread when serving a more hardy, dense soup such as Vegetable Beef.

These yummy rolls are so easy to make – especially when you “cheat” a little and use crescent roll dough from your market’s refrigerated section. Personally, I like Pillsbury Crescent Rolls for their flaky exterior and light, soft interior, but you can use your favorite refrigerated Crescent Rolls. During the holidays, I like to keep several cans on hand as they are so versatile. Be it a pre-planned Holiday Wreath with Versatility to cute bite-size roll ups wrapped around little smoked cocktail sausages when people pop over.

Buttery-Chive Crescent Rolls
1 can refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1 tablespoon butter, melted
¼ cup chopped fresh chives
Butter-Flavored Pam

Heat oven to 375-degrees (350 for darker pans or well-seasoned baking stone). Lightly spray baking sheet with butter flavored Pam and set aside.

On a flat surface such as a cutting board, unroll dough. Leave as one sheet and brush with butter. Sprinkle generously with chives. Separate rolls along perforated lines. (Use a pizza cutter and follow along the perforated lines for an easy way to separate the rolls without over-stretching the dough). Roll each into crescent shape.

Place on baking sheet and pop into the oven. Bake for 10-13 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from baking sheet to prevent bottom from over-cooking. Serve warm. Makes 8 rolls; double for more.

Looking for something to serve with an Italian influence: Add some roasted garlic to the butter and sprinkle with a little Italian seasoning. Yum!

  1. […] How long does it take for a pot of water to come to a boil? Add 5 minutes and you have a quick, flavorful dinner the entire family will enjoy. While the sauce is gently warming and the water comes to a boil, toss a nice salad. The sooner dinner gets on the table, the more time you will have to relax and converse with your family around the supper table. What could be better? Oh, I know – serving the pasta and salad with Buttery-Chive Crescent Rolls! […]
