21 Things To Cook With A Tube Of Crescent Dough

When I was a kid, my mom would often buy a tube of refrigerated crescent dough, a packet of marshmallows, and make up a batch of cinnamon sugar. She’d invite us to sit around the kitchen table, wrapping the crescents around the marshmallows before dipping them in butter and rolling them into cinnamon-sugar. We’d bake them until soft and golden and called them “Missing Marshmallows,” I found them so delicious it was magical.

Crescent dough lends itself to so many deliciously fun, fast recipes.  To get more of that buttery goodness, we’ve pulled together 21 incredible crescent dough recipes–from dinner to desserts–that will have you licking your fingers and loving every bite.
