Easy Pillsbury Dough Recipe Ideas

Sure I love making everything from scratch, but sometimes you need EASY recipes, am I right? Well, go no further because I have an impressive list of recipes that start with prepared dough and they create easy and delicious recipes with a little help from the store. These quick and easy pillsbury dough recipe ideas are perfect for breakfast or dessert!

What kinds of prepared dough do I use?

Most often, you’ll find that I use Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, Grands! Biscuits, or Cinnamon Rolls in my recipes. All three of those can make so many other delicious breakfasts and desserts (and even savory recipes too),  from pull-apart bread to monkey bread and so many more.

I’ve also been known to use refrigerated pie crust, frozen biscuits, and even refrigerated pizza crust to make just about everything. I love taking semi-homemade help from the store sometimes (or, all the time!)

Which products do I recommend?

I recommend brand names, not store brands, when it comes to refrigerated dough. Whether it be Pillsbury or another brand, the brand name just tastes better and performs better in recipes, in my opinion.
