Silly- Simple Cheese and Garlic Filled Crescents

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Vino Girl

These are so simple it's silly, but my husband loves them so much I thought I'd post this. I like them, too! I've tried making these a few different ways, but I believe good old processed American cheese singles works the best for this - it's clean and easy to measure and roll up, and it melts perfectly during the allotted baking time. You can skip the cooking spray and foil if you want and just bake these directly on the baking sheet, but I like to do it this way because it makes clean up easier, and any leftovers can be stored and reheated right in the foil.

My 4 year old daughter likes to type into the search words she can spell and see what comes up-it's VERY amusing for her! SILLY is one of those words and since we had all the ingredients she & I cooked these up for her lunch. Actually, they were so easy that she did mostly everything except opening the crescent package! She finshed hers & said "yum...these are lovely". Take it from a 4 year old that knows EVERYTHING!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375F; line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spray with butter flavored cooking spray.
  2. Unroll crescent roll dough and separate into 8 triangles; sprinkle each with garlic powder.
  3. Cut or divide each cheese slice into quarters to make 8 small squares of cheese.
  4. Cut or fold one piece of cheese in half; stack the halves on top of each other and place them on the bottom end (the flat side directly opposite the side with the thinnest point) of one crescent triangle; roll triangle up starting with this end.
  5. Fold the two side points of the dough towards the center of the dough so that all three triangle points are on the same side; place roll on the sheet with the points facing down.
  6. Repeat for each dough triangle and bake for 11-13 minutes or until golden.
