Breakfast at the Star of Texas Inn

This morning I served a tomato-pepper quiche and raspberry crescent rolls at the bed and breakfast. The guests loved the raspberry rolls, and asked how I made them…I was almost embarrassed at how easy the recipe was. I had been leafing through some cookbooks that my boss had lying around, and put together this recipe this morning. Decadent? Yes. Delicious? Yes. Easy? Oh, yes.

Raspberry Crescent Rolls

  • 1 can (8) crescent rolls
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray a 9×11-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

Unroll the crescent dough and separate into triangles. Place 4 or 5 raspberries in a row along the wide end, and roll up into a crescent shape (toward the point). Place rolls side-by-side in the baking dish.

Melt butter in a small saucepan. Add sugar and orange juice, and heat until just simmering. Pour over crescent rolls. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until rolls are golden brown. Much of the liquid will be absorbed, and the rest will form a thick sauce around the rolls.

Makes 8 rolls.

  1. Crystal, the rolls and the quiche look great! Is the Star the name of your B&B? Do you ever have people come for breakfast who aren’t guests there?

  2. Hi Becky! I changed the title of the post and added a link…yes, the B&B is called the Star of Texas Inn. We occasionally have friends of guests come by to eat. Do you live near Austin? You could always stop by to check things out!

  3. I can’t believe how easy those rolls are, but I bet they are delicious. That is a great recipe idea to always have on hand. Thanks for sharing!

    Oh, and I didn’t know you had a B & B!!! How did I miss that? And I’ve been dying to go to Austin lately – everyone’s always talking about how amazing it is.

  4. Hi Beth…no, I don’t own a B&B, I’m the breakfast chef. The owners are way cool, though. Austin is amazing…it’s such a fun place to live.

  5. I’ll check it out next time I’m in town. I live in the Dallas area, but have some family in Austin. I LOVE AUSTIN
    I stayed at a B&B once in Seabrook that let our local friends have breakfast with us for a very reasonable price. It was great that they were so laid back about it, bc a lot of B&Bs aren’t that way.

    Thanks for the link.

  6. Hi! The Raspberry Crescent Roll recipe sounds like a great one to have on hand for when the in-laws come to visit. I was wondering, did you defrost the raspberries first?

  7. Hi Jenn! No, I just plopped them on there straight from the freezer. I broke them apart if they were clumped together. Super easy!
