    Can these be made ahead of time a few hours?

    These are sooooo good! I pressed the dough all around the filling so mine were more like bundles than crescents; however that didn't take anything away from the fantastic taste. Will definitely make these again.

    Fantastic! All I would add is extra sauce on the side for dipping.

    Excellent! They turned out to be very pretty appetizers for a party! Forgot to buy thousand island, so just used mustard mixed with a little mayo (50/50). Great taste and presentation!

    I saw the recipe during PAC and knew I had to try them. We loved this easy recipe! I drained the sauerkraut in a colander & then squeezed dry. They do have a rueben flavor. I served these with german potato salad and pickles. For an entree I think 2 per person is reasonable as a serving. These could also be cut to serve as appetizers and would make terrific football game food. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

    I don't know if I was suppose to or not but I preheated my oven to 375. Made them exactly as written otherwise and they were great. Will definitely make these again.

    Filling overfills. Probably better made with the 8-count, 12-oz. "Grand" crescent rolls.
