Pillsbury Crescent Rolls recipe- Chocolate, Raisin, & Pistachio.

Pillsbury crescent rolls are a must-have in any kitchen. A Pillsbury crescent rolls recipe is as easy as it gets.

These rolls are perfect for everything from appetizers to desserts, and they’re so easy to make that there’s no excuse not to have them on hand.

Plus, they come in a variety of flavors, so you can always find one that suits your mood. Today, we’ll be making a recipe with chocolate, raisins, and pistachios.

Crescent Rolls During Ramadan

Muslims eat during suhoor (meal before fasting) and iftar (meal after fasting). We abstain from drink and water all throughout the day.

As you can imagine, cooking during Ramadan can be challenging. Especially for moms who have to work, too. I am making most of my recipes this month with those moms in mind. Nothing is easier than pre-made dough.

I’ll have a whole page of Pillsbury crescent rolls recipe by the end of Ramadan.

Crescent Rolls with Raisins, Chocolate, and Pistachios

Our recipe today takes some Afghan traditional flavors and kicks up your crescent roll experience. We take a little time here to make a sugar syrup and soak the raisins in it.

It is a nice mix: the richness of the chocolate, the flavor of the raisins, and the saltiness of the pistachios.

Your family will love these. Even if you are not Muslim or not fasting, these are perfect for the busy morning. Better than a bowl of cereal and only a few minutes to prepare.
