If you have spent any time at all at Mess for Less (first of all thank you!) then you know that crescent rolls and I are friends. Good friends. There are so many family friendly recipes you can make with store bought crescent rolls, whether you are looking for a sweet or savory treat. Plus they are loved by kids, always a win in my house. We have made more crescent roll recipes than you can shake a stick at such as Pepperoni Pizza Crescents and Peach Pie Crescents. Today, I am combining three of my favorite ingredients: crescent rolls, cheese and pesto for these simple Cheesy Pesto Crescents.
Crescent Roll Recipes: Cheesy Pesto Crescents

- 8 teaspoons pesto sauce (approx. 3 tablespoons)

One of my favorite things about most crescent roll recipes are that they can be made in the toaster oven. Simply preheat the toaster oven to 350 degrees and in a few minutes you’ll be enjoying this cheesy treat.
Unroll the tube of crescents and separate them into triangles. In each triangle place a teaspoon of pesto sauce and 1/2 of a string cheese. Roll into a crescent shape. Seal the edges as much as you can at this point. It might require some stretching of the dough to get the edges sealed.
Bake these cheesy pesto crescents at 375 degrees from 11-13 minutes, until the tops turn golden brown. Mine were done closer to the 11 minute mark. They are at their best when they are warm and the gooey cheese just oozes out of them.
