When I'm at school I always crave a home cooked meal. I used to beg my mom to make this meal, and she made it weekly because even she was obsessed with the soft, buttery crescent pockets. Trust me, once you see how easy this recipe is you'll be making it all the time too.

  • Step 7

    Set the oven to 350°. Then bake those 4 squares of deliciousness for 20-25 minutes or until the pockets are golden brown.

    Since the crescent pockets are so rich, I try to keep the sides simple. My favorite side is green beans.

The serving size is perfect for me because I have four people in my family, but my mom has been known to double the recipe just in case someone wants extra! Once you have one crescent pocket, your mouth will be watering for another one, and you will be glad you doubled this recipe. Also, this meal is easy to make, and in the time it takes to make it, you will have finished an episode of New Girl. It's a win win because your mom will be happy you're eating a nutritious meal, and you get to watch Netflix.
