I’ve had this kicking around my recipe box for a few months now and decided today’s Star Wars Marathon was the perfect time to make it. I mean come on — you can’t tell me these don’t look like Leia’s spiral buns from “A New Hope”…right?
The really great thing about these is that you could make them a little more kid friendly by using ham and some mozzarella, or really any meat/cheese combo you like. They are delicious.
1 (8 ounce) can Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or Pillsbury® Crescent Recipe Creations™ refrigerated flaky dough sheet
1/2 pound prosciutto or cooked ham, thinly sliced
4 ounces crumbled feta cheese
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon 100% Extra Virgin Olive or Pure Vegetable Oil
6 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
- Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray cookie sheets with No-Stick Cooking Spray. Separate or cut dough into 4 rectangles; place on lightly floured surface. If using crescent dough, firmly press perforations to seal. Press or roll each to form 8×5-inch rectangle.
- Arrange 1/4 of prosciutto slices evenly over each rectangle. In small bowl, mix cheese, pepper and oil. Sprinkle mixture evenly over prosciutto on each rectangle. Sprinkle with basil.
- Starting at short side of each rectangle, roll up; seal long edges. With serrated knife, cut each roll into 5 slices. Place, cut side up, on cookie sheets.
- Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheets. Serve warm.

Sadly we don’t get things like can Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or Pillsbury® Crescent Recipe Creations™ refrigerated flaky dough sheet. Do you think I could use puff pastry as an alternative?
Possibly, but it won’t be as buttery. Ideally you want a buttery yeast dough…not sure puff pastry would do the trick – but totally worth a try.
Ta. I will investigate other alternatives. 🙂
