If sweet and savory is your thing, be sure to try my Monte Cristo Crescent Roll Ups!
Teaming up with Pillsbury is always a treat, because there are so many fun things you can whip up with their crescent rolls. I remember the first time we tried the Monte Cristo Sandwich at Disneyland and I about died it was so good. I wanted to create those same great flavors with my crescent rolls that were simple and completely irresistible.
You definitely get the sweetness from the jam but the savory bites of provolone and turkey in every bite. All of those flavors wrapped up in buttery crescent rolls makes for a decadent little roll. Yah, they’re kind of amazing. You gotta give this one a try!
First things first, pinch together 2 crescents to form a rectangle as shown here. Spread lightly with your jam.
Perfect, now you are ready for your next layer.
Top with a couple slices of provolone cheese. Brie would also work lovely here.
Top with a couple slices of turkey breast, enough to cover the cheese.
Time to roll em up.
These babies are ready for the oven. They will spread a bit and the jam/cheese oozes out slightly. No worries. Once they are out of the oven, carefully take a plastic knife and push back around rolls. Let cool for 10 minutes then cut into slices. I like to dust them with powdered sugar too
Monte Cristo Crescent Roll Ups
Prep time: 10 min | Cook time: 25 min | Total time: 35 min
- 1 roll Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, 8 count
- 1/4 cup raspberry or blackberry jam
- 8 slices provolone cheese
- 8 slices turkey breast (I used lunch meat slices)
- 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a large baking sheet with a silpat liner.
- Unroll Pillsbury Crescent Rolls and pinch 2 crescents together forming a rectangle. Seal edges. Spread a thin layer of jam over each rectangle. Layer each with 2 slices of Provolone cheese and 2 slices of turkey breast. Roll each rectangle up placing seam side down on baking sheet.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden. Rolls will spread and jam/cheese will ooze out slightly. Once out of the oven, take a plastic knife and bring cheese and jam back around rolls. Let cool for 10-15 minutes then cut each roll into 3 slices. Dust with powdered sugar if desired and serve warm.

Treat your family and friends to my Oreo Cookie Ball Stuffed Cookies this baking season. Buttery crisp and Oreo fantastic
It’s definitely no secret that I love stuffing my cookies. Ever since my Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies were born, I tried stuffing my cookies with about everything you can think of.
If there’s one thing you should try stuffing in your cookies, it is crushed Oreo Cookies mixed with cream cheese aka “Oreo Cookie Balls.” You roll the mixture into little balls and stuff them inside cookie dough. The outcome is big bites of heaven.
Don’t take my word for it, give it a try yourself!
Whip up a batch of my cookie dough. You’ll want to use mine, because I developed it specifically for “stuffed” cookies. Some doughs will spread too much and your left with a lopsided stuffed cookie.
Oreo Cookie Ball ingredients. Easy and ridiculously delicious.
Crush your Oreos in your food processor or blender.
Stir in your softened cream cheese.
Roll into little 1/2 inch balls.
Make a little dip in your cookie dough and wrap it up like so. Bake and enjoy!
Oreo Cookie Ball Stuffed Cookies
Prep time: 15 min | Cook time: 12 min | Total time: 30 min
- 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
- 3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 2 cups chocolate chips, I used semi sweet
Oreo Cookie Balls Recipe
- 21 Oreo Cookies
- 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a large baking sheet with a silpat liner or parchment paper. In a stand mixer beat butter and sugars until well combined. Add eggs and vanilla; beat until combined.
- Place flour, salt and baking soda into a large bowl; mix. Add to wet ingredients along with chocolate chips. Mix until just combined.
- Place Oreos into a food processor or blender, mix until finely ground. Place into a bowl and mix with cream cheese until dough forms. Take 1 Tablespoon of dough and roll into a ball. Continue until all dough has been rolled, you should get 36 balls, enough for all of the cookie dough.
- With a large cookie scoop, scoop dough onto prepared baking sheet. Press a little hole into center of dough and put Oreo cookie balls inside, cover cookie dough around cookie balls so it’s hidden in the middle. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until edges of cookies just begin to turn golden brown. Remove and let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
Makes 3 dozen

There’s something so comforting about a big bowl of homemade mac and cheese. This recipe I developed is simple to prepare, thick, cheesy and ultra flavorful. I have fond memories of cooking in the kitchen with my mom and grandmother. We would make homemade mac and cheese together and have fun with different ingredient add-ins. Crispy pieces of bacon throughout, and garnished on top, make this mac and cheese hard to resist. The surprise ingredient is prepared basil which gets stirred in after the cheese sauce has been added to the pasta. This gives the mac and cheese a nice flavor punch and pairs nicely with the bacon. Enjoy!

Creating Pillsbury recipes takes me back to my contesting days. I still remember the night in my first house when I saw my first Pillsbury contest on TV. I knew instantly I wanted to be a finalist.
It’s always a pleasure partnering with Pillsbury! I grew up enjoying their products, not to mention I was a finalist in the Pillsbury Bake-Off twice! I remember brainstorming for pillsbury recipes with an abundance of ideas hitting me; so anxious to see if any of them were selected. I know how the current Pillsbury Bake-Off contestants feel. I’ve been in Las Vegas since this past Friday through tomorrow covering the Bake-Off live, so be sure to follow me on Instagram to see all of the fun!
So, today we are talking Pillsbury Cresent Rolls. I am kinda in love with them. There are about a zillion things you can do to create an amazing little work of art. I developed a simple Roasted Apples and Peanut Butter Crescent recipe that is going to knock your socks off. Just wait until you give these a try. I LOVE the apples and peanut butter combo, it works so lovely inside the crescent dough! This is such a great recipe to get the kids in the kitchen with you. They’ll love to help in all of these simple steps.
