Quickie Garlic & Herb Crescent Rolls
These are so easy to make, and the recipe is easily doubled. (No need to butter these rolls; they taste great all by themselves.)
1 pop-can Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls
2 1/2 tablespoons no- or low trans-fat margarine with 8 grams fat per tablespoon (Take Control, Land O'Lakes Buttery Taste in tub, etc.)
1 1/2 teaspoons Mrs. Dash Garlic & Herb no salt seasoning
2 teaspoons finely chopped chives (optional)
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Add margarine, Mrs. Dash, and chives (if desired) to 1-cup measure. Blend well with fork or spoon.
- Open pop can and, one by one, unroll the crescent roll dough and lay them flat on a work surface. Spread about a teaspoon of the margarine mixture over each of the triangles of dough (using a small spoon), then roll into crescents (start from the bottom of the triangle and roll toward the tip). Place on cookie or baking sheet.
- Bake for 11-13 minutes or until nicely brown and cooked throughout.
