Welcome to another edition of Food Fun Friday where I share family friendly recipes that you can make with your kids. Today I have another easy peasy crescent roll recipe for you. Peanut butter and jelly is a childhood staple. We decided to replace the bread with a flaky crescent roll, and the results were DELICIOUS! If anyone in your family is allergic to peanuts this would work with most peanut butter substitutes. If you love these Peanut Butter and Jelly Crescents, you will also flip for our Pizza Crescents.
Peanut Butter and Jelly Crescents
- Tube of crescent rolls
- Peanut butter
Preheat oven or toaster oven to 375 degrees. Unroll crescent rolls from tube and separate into eight triangles. In each triangle, you will place 1/2 tablespoon of peanut butter and 1/2 tablespoon of jelly on top of the peanut butter.
Now roll up as you would a normal crescent, being careful to keep the filling inside the crescent roll. I demonstrated for my daughter how to do this and then she was able to roll the crescents all by herself. When she was done, I pinched any open edges of the dough together so the filling would remain inside while cooking.
Place the crescent rolls in a 375 degree oven for 11-13 minutes. Ours were done in 11 minutes, but oven cook times vary.
You’ll want to let these cool before you eat them. The peanut butter and jelly gets quite hot. Try one yourself before giving them to your child to make sure they have sufficiently cooled.
We enjoyed this crescent roll recipe as an after school snack. It’s hard to go wrong when you stuff a buttery crescent with PB&J. These are as good as they are easy and they are sure to become a favorite.
