Tips for Preparing Crescent Dough Mexican Taco Ring

  • To help the uncooked crescent rolls stay in a circular shape, place a 4 to 5-inch wide bowl in the center and work around it. Remove the bowl before baking.
  • Apply a light egg wash (1 egg + 1 tablespoon of water) to give the taco ring a nice, shiny brown look after it bakes.
  • Don’t overfill the crescent dough. Otherwise, the filling will spill out of the openings while the ring bakes.
