Tropical Pastries

Prep and Cook Time 20 minutes


Makes 8 servings


1 bag (6 ounces) diced dried tropical fruit medley or other diced dried fruit mixture
1/2 cup orange juice
2 cans (8 ounces each) crescent dinner rolls
3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted and divided
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
Powdered sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Combine fruit and juice in small microwavable bowl. Cover with vented plastic wrap. Microwave on HIGH 3 to 5 minutes or until juice has been absorbed.
  2. While fruit is cooking, unroll dough and separate along perforations to form 4 rectangles, about 4x5 inches each. Do not separate dough into triangles. Press diagonal cuts in rectangles to reseal dough. Brush each rectangle with 1-1/2 teaspoons margarine.
  3. Stir brown sugar into fruit. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons fruit mixture horizontally across center of each rectangle. To form, fold bottom edge of dough up over filling; fold in sides, then roll up to completely enclose filling. Place seam sides down on baking sheet. Brush with remaining 1 tablespoon margarine.
  4. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm or at room temperature. Sprinkle with powdered sugar immediately before serving.
