Ham & Cheddar Crescents

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by newspapergal

I adopted this recipe in Aug. 2006; it originally was posted by CBW. I love these, and DH loves to dip them in spicy mustard. CBW's original comments: "Found these in a Pillsbury Cookbook and have made them several times. My hubby and I really like these with a bowl of soup. Simple, but really tasty!"

We loved these. They are so light and flaky and the addition of cheese and ham makes them a special treat. We had these with tomato soup. They were almost as easy to put together as the plain rolls are, and I seriously doubt I will ever make them the 'normal' way again. I ran out of chedder cheese after the first 4 rolls, so I sliced up some american cheese, and it worked just fine. Even though my DS has strep throat right now, and can't eat "scratchy" foods, he finished off 3 of these. He dipped them right into his soup. A true winner!
