Introduction: Cheese Filled Salted Beer Pretzel Croissants
A quick, easy, and delicious snack!
Step 1: Ingredients
- 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
- 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (2 oz)
- 1 egg
- 1 bottle (12 oz) stout or porter beer
- 1 tablespoon baking soda
- sea salt (or kosher)
Step 2: Step 1
Turn on your oven and heat to 375°F.
Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray or line with cooking parchment paper.
Step 3: Step 2
Separate crescent dough into 8 triangles.
Place 1 tablespoon cheese (or more if you'd like) on wide end of each triangle.
Roll up the dough and make sure the cheese is tucked in.
Step 4: Step 3
In a bowl, beat egg and a splash (~2 tablespoons) of the beer with whisk until blended.
Step 5: Step 4
In a deep microwave-safe bowl, microwave remaining beer uncovered on High for 1 minute 30 seconds or until hot.
Slowly add baking soda and stir until dissolved. Do it slowly because it will bubble up fast!
Soak each crescent, one at a time, in the beer mixture for 15 seconds.
Remove with a slotted spoon and place on a cooling rack.
Let stand, at room temperature about 5 minutes.
Step 6: Step 5
Brush crescents with egg mixture, and transfer to cookie sheet.
Sprinkle the crescents with as much salt as you like.
Bake 10-12 minutes or until tops are deep golden brown.
Eat them while they are hot!
