Ingredients

  • 1 tube Pillsbury Crescent Roll Dough 8 rolls
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar plus a few pinches

Instructions

  • Open Crescent Rolls and unroll dough.
  • Press all the seams together to seal. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar over one side of the crescent rectangle, press lightly with you hands to adhere. Gently flip over the rectangle. Roll up each side so that the two rolls meet in the middle. Wrap in plastic and chill for at least 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Line two cookie sheets with silpat baking mats, parchment paper, or grease them with cooking spray. (These will stick if you don’t do one of those three things!)
  • Slice the dough 1/2” thick. Place on cookie sheets, 2” apart. Bake for 10-20 minutes, until the bottoms start to get golden. Let cool on cookie sheet for just a few minutes, then run a spatula underneath so the melted sugar doesn’t stick.
  • Rainbow Palmiers: Place the rectangle so that the width is longer than the height. Sprinkle sugars in vertical rows in the colors of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple. Roll up each side so that the two rolls meet in the middle. Wrap in plastic and chill for at least 1 hour.

Notes

To use puff pastry: thaw the frozen puff pastry as directed on the box. Proceed with the same directions as above.
