Everything Crescent Shapes — A two ingredient all-ALDI recipe
These nifty little crescent shapes are a fun snack all by themselves, or would make cute additions to your next cheese plate or charcuterie board. Here I just paired them with some sliced chipotle cheddar — also, of course, from ALDI — which went beautifully with their slightly sweet, garlicky, saltiness. Try something different with your next can of crescents, and enjoy.
Let’s jazz up ALDI’s Bake House Creations crescent rolls!
So, this idea I actually read about in an old Taste of Home magazine. (Don’t know what issue, since I tore out the page probably several years ago, used it as a bookmark, and just found it folded into in an old book.) There they did fall leaf cutouts and topped them with various seasonings, but I decided that ALDI’s Who Needs the Bagel? seasoning would do just fine all on its own.
You could even use a little less seasoning than I did here (I got a little carried away!), to your own taste and to reduce the saltiness a little. I forgot that ALDI’s everything bagel blend contains a little more sodium than Trader Joe’s, which I’m more used to using.
How to make Everything Crescent Shapes with two easy ingredients
- One can Bake House Creations refrigerated crescents
- Who Needs the Bagel? everything bagel seasoning, to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the can of crescent rolls, and roll the dough out flat.
Cut the crescent dough into a variety of shapes using small cookie cutters. (Or free-form some with a knife or by hand, as I did here.)
Place the crescent shapes onto an ungreased rimmed baking sheet and sprinkle with Who Needs the Bagel? seasoning.
Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes, or until browned. Serve these on their own, topped with a little cheese, or to decorate a cheese or charcuterie board.
Note: The thinner your shapes are, the faster they will brown. Try to keep the shapes a similar thickness and size for even cooking. If your ALDI doesn't carry the Who Needs the Bagel? seasoning (or if you just use a lot of it), you can pick up a larger jar on Amazon.

What else can you do with ALDI crescent rolls?
Well, you can of course use a couple of cans of Bake House Creations crescent rolls, an egg, and some of the everything bagel seasoning (rather than plain sesame seeds as shown here) to throw together a totally inauthentic challah!

You can jazz up a box of ALDI’s Baker’s Corner brownie mix and make a batch of easy chile mocha brownies, instead of playing with crescent rolls today. Or, you know: In addition to playing with crescent rolls today. We do not judge around here. 😉
