Crescent dough is definitely a great emergency food. When I haven’t prepared something, have been working through till dinner, or just have no idea what to make this is a common ingredient. Ready made crescent dough is something I’ve always used but someday I’ll get around to making my own! I use it combined with leftovers or food I need to use up. This time it was a bunch of thin sliced ham in the fridge & a hankering for something cheesy.
