It looks great, but I have a question... what is the dough you're using?  We don't have it here in Oz and I've googled it but am not getting a lot in the way of specifics.  Is it like a shortcrust pastry, or is it yeasted?  Is it sweet?

Hi rossie!

Just in case our author is no longer monitoring this posting, I'll answer your questions.   Grin

Pillsbury Crescent Rolls are a convenience-type dough, it comes in a cardboard tube.  It is not sweet, and is actually somewhat buttery and flaky.  Kind of like the poor-man's croissant.   Cheesy Wink Cheesy  The dough unrolls flat and then has perforations in it to separate the pieces and roll them up into the crescent shape.  However, as you can see here, they have many other uses than just dinner rolls.   Cheesy

If you cannot find some sort of dough like this, I'd imagine a pie crust-type dough might work ok...maybe. 

Good luck and keep us posted and your efforts please.  I am always interested in learning about the differences in groceries and stuff between countries.  I was fascinated by the grocery store when I went to England.  (Yeah, I am a dork).  Unfortunately, when I was in Sydney I didn't have enough time to really get out to the local stores much.

Yup, spotnik hit the nail on the head. We have them in our frozen food section along with the premade cookie doughs and such. It's just a brand of croissant pre-made dough.

So it's been more than a year, but I finally know what the dough is like!  Hurrah!  I'm looking forward to trying this recipe now Smiley

For anyone else who can't get hold of the crescent dough in their country, it's a soft bread dough with a lot of butter in it.  I have a recipe from my bread machine, which I have now made several times and like very much. 

1 egg + enough water to equal 1 cup
3 1/4 cups bread flour
1 tsp salt
3 TBS sugar
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 tsp yeast

In my machine, you place the ingredients in order into the pot thing, then put the machine on the dough setting.  It takes 1 1/2 hours and then the dough is ready to use.  If you're doing it by hand just mix, knead like crazy and let it rise an hour and the results should be pretty comparable. 

Now I just have to try the cheesecake Smiley
