Almond-Orange-Apricot Crescent Rolls

Now I’m not a baker, but even I can make this one and impress everyone at brunch time! They taste especially good when they are fresh from the oven. Kids can make this one, too!


  • 1 package store-bought crescent roll dough, such as Pillsbury brand
  • 1/4 cup apricot preserves or all fruit spread
  • 1/4 cup orange marmalade
  • 1 egg
  • Splash of water
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds (2 ounce bag in the baking aisle at the grocery store)


Pre-heat oven according to package directions and roll out dough on a nonstick cookie sheet. Cut and separate dough along perforated triangles.

Combine the apricot jam or fruit spread and the orange marmalade in a small bowl. Place bowl in microwave and cook on high about 15 seconds to loosen the preserves.

Beat egg with water to thin it out a little for an egg wash.

Use the back of a teaspoon to spread a thin layer of apricot-orange jam across each piece of dough. Roll crescents up, brush with a little egg wash and coat with sesame seeds and almonds. Bake according to package directions until deep golden in color. Serve warm.
