Monte Cristo Crescent Roll Ups

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!

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!
