Luckily, this magical dough is extremely versatile and can be used in so many different ways. I wanted to make a “Hot Pocket” type situation, so I used what I had on hand and made it with lunch meat and bacon. The point of these things is to use what you’ve got, so get creative! Result: Hot Crescent Sandwiches.

I like to roll this dough out with a rolling pin to get more bang for my buck. It results in a lighter crust and yields more servings. I always use parchment paper to avoid ripping or losing any dough.

Using the Crescent dough, I also made these incredible Blueberry Cheesecake Pastries. You can make sweet or savory recipes with this dough. I can’t wait to experiment more! I’m thinking of a breakfast one soon, I’ll let you know. We have had these sandwiches three times in the last few weeks because they are so easy, and so darn good.

There are two methods to building and sealing the sandwiches.
  1. Placing fillings on one half of the dough, and folding it over to seal.
  2. Placing fillings in the middle of the dough, and folding over each other to seal.
I like both methods, but the 1st method seems to be easier and quicker.
You can choose whichever fillings are your favorite for sandwiches. I wasn’t sure if tomato would make it soggy, so I didn’t try it yet. Adding cheese isn’t necessary, but does keep the bacon from ripping the dough when folding over and sealing.
