How to Make Pineapple Coconut Crescent Rolls

Dough: To start, you’ll need crescent roll dough which you can easily find at any grocery store. The dough is soft and buttery, which makes it the perfect base for this sweet tropical delight. Roll out the dough and separate it into eight triangles.

Filling: Next, combine fresh pineapple pieces and shredded coconut in a bowl. The combination of juicy pineapples and aromatic coconut flakes is what gives this dish its unique tropical flavor. Spoon the mixture on each triangle of the dough, then roll it up starting from the wider end and finishing at the narrower end.

Bake: Place your Pineapple Coconut Crescent Rolls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 10-15 minutes in a preheated oven at 375°F or until the rolls turn golden brown. It’s important to keep an eye on them to make sure they don’t burn. Once baked, take them out of the oven and allow them to cool down for a few minutes.
