Got a tube of crescent dough sitting in the fridge? Then you just have to make one of these sweet, easy, and delicious crescent roll desserts.
They’re light, quick, and simply to die for.
17 Easy Crescent Roll Dessert Recipes
The next time you need a sweet treat to satisfy a crowd, try one of these crescent roll desserts.
No matter the brand, crescent dough is light and buttery. Plus, it’s ready-made, so you don’t need to spend hours in the kitchen.
And no matter what you’re craving, I know there’s a recipe here you and your family will love.
1. Strawberry Cheesecake Crescent Rolls
Cheesecake is always at the top of my dessert list. So when it’s this easy to make, I’m in trouble!
Ready in 25 minutes, all you need is a tube of dough, sweetened cream cheese, strawberry jam, and half a cup of fresh strawbs.
Feel free to add a glaze. But really, they’re perfect as is.
2. Apple Pie Bites
These six-ingredient apple pie bites take only 30 minutes to make, and they taste like the whole fall season.
Just roll tart Granny Smith apples into a triangle of dough with cinnamon sugar and chopped pecans or walnuts.
Then butter the tops and add even more sugar for an aromatic and crispy coating.
3. Apple Dumplings
Between the Granny Smith apples, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, and crescent rolls, this recipe is kind of like apple cobber.
But then you’ll add a teaspoon of vanilla and a bottle of Mountain Dew. That’s how these babies get so crispy instead of soggy.
Top it off with some vanilla ice cream for an extra sweet treat.
4. Nutella Crescent Rolls
Of all the desserts with crescent rolls, this might just be the fastest!
Thanks to a simple can of refrigerated crescent rolls, these Nutella treats couldn’t be easier to recreate.
Along with the buttery dough and nutty spread, you’ll need powdered sugar for the top, and…that’s it!
5. Deep-Fried Oreos in The Air Fryer
Bring the fun of the county fair home with this super simple Air Fryer recipe.
Ready in under five minutes, all you need to do is wrap an Oreo in dough and Air Fry it for a few minutes until golden.
How easy is that?
Oh, and feel free to use an Oreo you like, such as golden or strawberry!
6. Cinnamon Rolls
These crescent roll cinnamon rolls are another favorite of mine. They taste great for dessert or as sweet breakfast pastries.
They take about 10 minutes to throw together and another 20 to bake.
And while they don’t have the same fluffy finish, they always hit the spot – especially with the sweet glaze on top.
7. Crescent Roll Monkey Bread
Monkey bread is probably one of the messiest, stickiest desserts you can make. But it tastes so good, no one cares about the mess.
And while I often reach for canned biscuits, this version is a must-make.
Plus, if you can find gluten free crescent rolls, it’s a super quick and inclusive dessert everyone can enjoy.
8. Sopapilla Cheesecake
Sopapillas are a type of Mexican donut often served with honey.
And while they’re great on their own, this sopapilla cheesecake is my favorite way to serve them.
There’s layers of crisp yet fluffy crescent rolls, sweetened cream cheese filling, cinnamon sugar, and honey.
Every bite is rich, sweet, crispy, and oh-so-creamy.
9. Crescent Layer Bars
Have you ever made ‘magic’ bars? You know, the recipe with seven layers of yum that come together into one mouthful of heaven?
Well, this is like that, only you’ll use refrigerated crescent rolls instead of Graham Cracker crumbs.
Don’t worry, there’s still sweetened condensed milk for that sticky caramel finish, along with plenty of chocolate chips, almonds, and pecans.
10. Cherry Turnovers
These turnovers make terrific after-dinner desserts, but I frequently serve them for Sunday morning brunch too.
And they don’t even need to be cherry! I’ve used blueberry pie filling and even pumpkin, and they’re always a hit.
Want to make them elevated? Try adding Brie or goat cheese!
11. Cream Cheese Bars
Yes, these are similar to the sopapilla recipe above.
But I wanted to include it because of how versatile it is!
It calls for just six ingredients, and it’ll be ready in about half an hour.
But you can add anything to make it your own, like chocolate chips, lemon curd, or fresh fruit. Yum!
12. Easy Blueberry Lemon Cream Cheese Danish
How incredible do these blueberry and lemon cream cheese danish pastries look?
The main filling is a simple blend of sugar, lemon juice, vanilla, and cream cheese. And honestly, that’s enough for a sweet treat!
But to take them over the edge, add a big spoonful of blueberry pie filling! Delish!
13. Maple Pecan Crescent Cinnamon Twists
Make your next brunch with the family one to remember with a big batch of these maple and pecan twists.
You’ll add chopped nuts to the filling, then drizzle a maple glaze over the top when they’re cooked.
Want them even more irresistible? Add crumbled bacon to the filling too!
14. Crescent Roll Coffee Cake
Did you know you can turn crescent roll dough into a coffee cake?
It’s true! And it’s insanely good.
This recipe calls for raspberry preserves, chopped pecans, and a sweet milk glaze.
But as always, you can easily swap out the filling for chocolate, pumpkin, or apple butter.
15. Pillsbury Easy Cronuts Recipe
Have you ever tried a cronut? They’re layer upon layer of heavenly dough with a sweet filling or icing on top.
And now you can make them at home with Pillsbury crescent baking sheets (they’re packaged like puff pastry, so not in tubes)!
They don’t have quite the same flaky finish, but they’re a terrific dupe!
16. Funfetti Cheesecake Stuffed Crescent Rolls
Here’s one for the kiddos!
These funfetti rolls are the ideal birthday breakfast. But they’re so easy, you can whip them up any day.
And they’re not just great for kids. The whole family will want seconds – so be sure to make extra!
17. Caramel Banana Cream Sweet Rolls
Caramel and banana go hand in hand.
And when they’re warm with a sweet, fluffy dough, they’re borderline addictive.
Don’t worry, you don’t need to make caramel from scratch. Either buy it in a jar or melt candies!
