How do you bake crescent rolls?

To bake standard crescent rolls, you will need to roll up each triangle of dough and bend them into a crescent shape. Place the rolls on an ungreased pan and bake at 375 degrees F for 11-13 minutes or until golden brown. Many of these crescent roll recipes call for shaping the dough into different forms, so the bake times may vary.

Can you refrigerate crescent roll dough after opening it?

After the can has been opened, you can store any leftover dough in the refrigerator for 2-4 hours. Be sure to cover the remaining dough with plastic wrap.
