Filled Crescent Roll Doughnuts

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 15 mins

You've got options here! Pick a flavor, or make a couple and freeze them! We use these as desserts sometimes, but usually they end up as breakfast. I figure they can't be any worse then doughnuts, and they have fruit in them. You could probably use any type of baking chips to vary the flavor, such as white chocolate or mint chocolate. I don't usually measure these, just dump it in, so these are approximate!

I made these for my sons birthday breakfast on Sunday (even though his bday was the 10th) and he really enjoyed! I made the peanut butter filling and the chocolate chip filling. The PB filling was definitely better. I used cream to make the icing. Thx for sharing!

These were great! I used recipe #25426 and made them into crescents then used the cinnamon filling minus the nuts, peanut butter filling, and another with butterscotch chips. They were wonderful! Thank you, JESMom!

My DH loved these! I used cherry pie filling and orange juice with the glaze. Thanks so much! Made for the potluck party game.
