Of all the convenience foods in the market the pop-tube dough (crescent dough, in particular), is my favorite.

Pop crescent rolls so versatile and can be used in all kinds of sweet and savory dishes. From appetizers to desserts, and everything in between!

For this easy crescent roll muffin recipe, I used two tubes of crescent dough sheets and then sprinkled them with a mixture of granulated sugar, ground cinnamon, and lots of chopped, fresh, strawberries.

The result is a deliciously tempting muffin that’s super simple to make and utterly delicious!

Can the perforated crescent roll dough be used to make this recipe?


If that’s all you have on hand or all you can find in the market, using the perforated crescent roll dough is perfectly fine.

You’ll just need to take the time to press all the perforations together to form solid sheets of dough.

Can other fruit be used in this recipe?

Sure thing!

I like to use fresh fruit and substitutions like apples, blueberries, cherries, pears (you get the idea) would all work well for this easy breakfast muffin recipe.

That said, peel the fruit (if needed), and chop into small pieces. Since the baking time is relatively short for these muffins the small pieces will cook faster and yield a softer end product.

Can jam be used in place of the fresh fruit in this recipe?

That’s a wonderful idea!!

I would spread a thin layer of jam over the butter layer and continue with the recipe as written.
