This recipe came from my Aunt when I was about 13 years old. Not only is it good for kids, but it's good for parties too!

These are awesome! After reading other reviews on messy prep, I finely chopped the pepperoni in the food processor, pulsed in the cheese and a little sauce then spread it over the dough. I used toothpicks soaked in water for 15 minutes (so they don't burn) to secure the logs, popped them in the freezer for 20 minutes then sliced with a very sharp knife. I bake them on their sides on sheets coated with a little cooking spray and ooze was minimal. A snap, and you can make an industrial sized amount in a very short amount of time. The toothpicks worked out great, and made a little handle for dipping. Also fantastic using thinly sliced ham and cheese with a honey mustard dipping sauce, or taco meat and cheddar! Perfect to do and freeze ahead to pop a handful into the toaster oven for late night munchies.

I made a few additions to this recipe and it was fantastic! I diced up pepperoni in some, and added crumbled, cooked sausage to others. After adding cheese and filling, i seaseoned with italian seasoning and grated romano cheese. I rolled and added more grated cheese to the outside along with garlic and herb seasoning. I refrigerated overnight, cut and baked the next day. Served with homemade marinara...realy impressive!

These were fabuous and not hard to make at all when you know how to do it. The first time I tried to work with crescent dough, I cried because it turned out so horrible, but just put the can in the freezer for 15-20 minutes before you work with it and work quickly, and it will turn out fine. I also cut them up beforehand and chilled them for awhile as suggested. They turned out perfectly! I would definitely suggest the marinara or pizza sauce to dip in--it makes it that much better!
