Are Crescent Rolls the Same as Puff Pastry?

Pillsbury Crescent Rolls are a type of puff pastry. Puff pastry is made from dough that is folded and layered multiple times, which creates the many layers that give puff pastry its name. Crescent rolls are also made with laminated dough, but instead of being folded and layered, the dough is rolled out and shaped into a crescent shape.

Can I Substitute Puff Pastry for Crescent Roll Dough?

If you’re looking for a similar texture to crescent roll dough, puff pastry is a good option. However, keep in mind that puff pastry is denser than crescent roll dough and will require a longer baking time.
