This is Nona again, filling in for Lindsey while she’s still tied up with editing duties. And once again, I am working with some promotional literature from the good folks at General Mills.
For years I have turned to a trusty tube of Pillsbury crescent roll dough to make a favorite appetizer: Pigs-in-a-blanket. These simple little gems are a holiday tradition in my family, and something I always liked making with my daughter when she was a child. We like to wrap up the sausages in so much dough we call them pigs-in-a-down-comforter.
But there was always a bit of geometry involved in slicing up the perforated triangles in the Pillsbury crescent dough, and inevitably a few of the little smokies only got the small, pointy tip as a wrapping. Pigs-in-a-baby’s-blankie.
Problem solved. Pillsbury is now selling their famous flaky dough in full, non-perforated sheets as Pillsbury Crescent Recipe Creations.
No more smoothing over or piching up the dotted lines, no more short-sheeting a sausage. Now you can parse your dough anyway you need it.
I checked with a reliable source I have at Kroger, and they don’t have this item yet. Post a comment if you have seen it anywhere else in the Valley. I am going to post some recipes that Pillsbury sent after the jump, including the mini pear brie bites pictured above, but feel free to share your favorite, fun family recipes.
