Make more space on the holiday table by combining two favorite side dishes – cranberries and Pillsbury™ Crescent Rolls.

Only 2 ingredients and 15 minutes and these easy dinner rolls are ready to eat! Put the cranberries in the crescent rolls and surprise your guests with a delightful twist!

I have been intrigued by cranberries during the holiday season for a few years. I see these big bags of fresh cranberries at the grocery store and I think there must be something fun I can make with them.  Well, this year I finally got around to picking up a bag and seeing what I could make with it. This cranberry crescent roll recipe was a result of just that! I love that I basically put two side dishes in to one to make more space on the table.

Rolls for Thanksgiving

I picked up my cranberry  extravaganza ingredients, including Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, at my local Albertsons store. They had everything I needed to make a few cranberry inspired recipes for Thanksgiving.  I started by making a batch of homemade cranberry sauce, which was super easy.

Easy Crescent Rolls

After finishing a Cranberry Brie recipe, I had a few leftover crescent rolls as well as some extra cranberry sauce. I decided to roll some of the cranberry sauce in the crescent rolls and see what happened. Oh my goodness! Absolute deliciousness is what happened.  These cranberry crescent rolls are good hot out of the oven or served room temperature a few days later.

Cranberry Filled Crescent Rolls

These crescent rolls would be amazing on the Thanksgiving or Christmas menu. But they are sweet enough for a breakfast treat as well.  They are perfect for using up any leftover cranberries. I used my homemade sauce, but canned would work just fine, too.
