Recipe Notes

I don't always have fresh garlic on hand but keep a tube of minced garlic for recipes like this.

It helps to make sure your crescent dough is cold. Don't leave it out while preparing the filling. The colder the dough the easier it is to shape and slice.

Don't have crescent rolls? Pizza dough works great here too!

Make ahead tip: You can bake these and then freeze them until you need them. Just reheat them in the oven for about 10 minutes at 375 degrees.
