Crescent Rolls with Jam

I recently bought two packages of crescent roll dough; one I made plain and the other I smeared with strawberry jam for the very first time. I don’t know why I hadn’t thought of doing this before but it was delicious!

To take it a step further I made a simple glaze and drizzled that over the crescents. So, so, so yummy!

There were two left over and I decided to refrigerate them and surprisingly, they actually tasted really good cold.

One thing I really love about these rolls is the color of them! The fruit filling makes them look so pretty; a wonderful addition to Spring brunch.

This is a non-recipe type of recipe and I know there’s probably plenty of people who already do this but I thought I’d share it for those who haven’t tried it yet.

How to make Jam-Filled Crescent Rolls

This recipe is so simple and since the baking sheet is your work station there’s already any dirty dishes to clean up afterwards.

  1. First, preheat the oven to 350°F and prep the baking sheet.
  2. Place the crescent doll on the sheet, unroll and separate.
  3. Spread jam (or jelly or preserves) onto each piece of dough.
  4. Roll them up and space them evenly apart.
  5. Bake until golden, about 10 – 11 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes.
  6. Make the glaze and drizzle it over the crescents. Enjoy! 

Of course you can make them without the glaze but they’re so much better with it.

How to tell when the rolls are done

They should be puffed, golden, and no longer raw in the center. If you over bake the rolls they will be dry and if you under bake them they will be soggy!

Ingredients
 

Jam Crescent Rolls

  • 1 can (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent roll dough
  • 1/3 cup jam, jelly, or preserves (any flavor)

Glaze

  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 – 2 1/2 teaspoons milk (or as much needed)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions
 

Make the rolls:

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat.
  • Remove the crescent roll dough from the package and place it on the baking sheet. Unroll and separate into triangles.
  • Spread 2 teaspoons (maximum!) of jam onto each triangle leaving space at the very edges to prevent it from leaking out.
  • Starting with the wide ends, roll up the pieces of dough and space them evenly apart.
  • Bake for 10 – 11 minutes until lightly golden brown and no longer raw in the center.
  • Cool on sheet 5 minutes.

While rolls are cooling make the glaze:

  • In a small bowl mix together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla until smooth.
  • Drizzle over the crescent rolls.

Notes

How I made the jam glaze shown in the photos: I added 1 teaspoon of jam, 1 drop of food coloring, and about a 1/2 teaspoon more milk.

What a wonderfully simple and delicious quick recipe! Your photos are beautiful. I had a tube of crescent rolls in the fridge and found this recipe while searching on Pinterest for a way to use up my last roll. These were easy…..almost too pretty too eat, but we managed to devour them and fight over the last one just the same. Now I need to add crescent rolls to my grocery list for this weekend because I want to try your cinnamon roll version too. Thanks for sharing and I think I might just be addicted to your blog now!

Really? I think the photos look horrible and need updating, lol but thank you! I know, they are really pretty. I love how the color of the jam really stands out against the dough. The cinnamon roll version is amazing! My family loves it. Aw, that’s sweet of you to say. Thank you so much for leaving a comment.
