  • 8 ounce crescent rolls , I used Pillsbury
  • 2-3 Tablespoons sugar , for rolling (optional)
  • non stick spray

For serving: Syrup, Fresh berries, powdered sugar


    • Preheat your waffle iron.
    • Roll out your crescent rolls and add any fillings if desired. Then roll up the larger side down of the dough down to the smallest side (see photo in post for visual) and roll in sugar.
    • Place the crescents or thawed croissant into the waffle iron. Cook for 3 minutes or until golden brown.
    • Serve with desired toppings like syrup, fresh fruit, and powdered sugar.


    Dough: You can also use frozen mini croissants (I find these at Traders Joes) and defrost them. Another option is using puff pastry and cut it into triangles to roll it up. 
    Filling: You can try adding a nutella, peanut butter or mascropone with thinly diced fruit to the middle before rolling the dough and cooking as well. A savory options such as brie, prosciutto, and jam would be great too.
