Cheesy Pesto Crescents

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Side Dishes, Holiday, Desserts

 Ingredients List

  • 8 count crescent rolls
  • 4 string cheese
  • 8 teaspoons pesto sauce (approx. 3 tablespoons)


One of my favorite things about most crescent roll recipes are that they can be made in the toaster oven. Simply preheat the toaster oven to 350 degrees and in a few minutes you'll be enjoying this cheesy treat.

Unroll the tube of crescents and separate them into triangles. In each triangle place a teaspoon of pesto sauce and 1/2 of a string cheese. Roll into a crescent shape. Seal the edges as much as you can at this point. It might require some stretching of the dough to get the edges sealed.

Bake at 375 degrees from 11-13 minutes, until the tops turn golden brown. Mine were done closer to the 11 minute mark.

I recommend eating these straight out of the oven. They are at their best when they are warm and the gooey cheese just oozes out of them.
