    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.  -  14 Jul 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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!  -  04 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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!  -  17 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
