The phrase “Home for the Holidays” may mean different things to different people—different holidays, different religions, different countries, different traditions, and so forth—but one thing we humans all have in common is the need to gather for special occasions, usually accompanied by food! And in the 21st-century hustle-bustle of our lives, augmented by holiday stresses and pressures, we can all use the “Easy” button now more than ever.

To that end I offer a quick, simple, inexpensive treat that can be served as a dessert or breakfast pastry. And if your kids are old enough, they’ll have fun helping you with this baking project, or perhaps even doing it themselves!

Jam-filled Crescent Rolls

 Ingredients:
  • 1 tube of pre-cut crescent roll dough
  • Your favorite jam(s)
  • Melted butter (optional)

Instructions:
  • Preheat oven as directed on the package for the type of baking sheet or pan you plan to use.
  • Open tube and unroll each triangle.
  • Spread a small amount of jam across the base of the triangle, no more than halfway toward the point. This is the tricky part, because the jam can ooze out and burn during baking.
  • Roll the triangle loosely and place on baking sheet.
  • Brush with a little melted butter (optional).
  • Repeat for the remaining triangles, leaving at least 2 inches between crescents.
  • Bake as directed on the package, and do not over-bake!
  • Cool before serving. The jam can get very hot.


Enjoy your treats, and have a safe and blessed holiday season!

  14. My favorite holiday recipe? My mother in law makes the BEST holiday ham! I have no idea what she does to it, but it's so delicious! But before that, my grandmother made this delicious holiday peanut brittle. She always made a little extra just for me to take home afterwords!

    And thank you so much for the wonderful recipe! I've had jam filled cookies before, but never rolls! Which would be a little more practical, and a better breakfast ;)

    The type of e-reader I have: I have a Kindle (Keyboard), as well as the Barnes and Noble, Kindle, and Nook ereader apps for my computer!

    Thanks again!! *follows* <3

  24. Yum! My favorite tradition is making a massive Christmas morning breakfast (because no non cooks are allowed in the kitchen for the rest of the day, so it better be enough until dinner!). I've got a kindle, which was a wonderful Christmas present last year.
