Easy Pull Apart Shamrock Bread

This fun St. Patties inspired recipe could not be any easier.  All you need is two ingredients, for this perfect holiday side dish.


2 packages of Crescent Rounds

 Basil Pesto (use your favorite brand)


Preheat oven according to package directions for rounds.  Lay your crescent rounds out on a pizza pan lined with parchment paper.  The parchment paper will make it easy to slide bread off onto your serving tray, keeping its shape of a shamrock.  Lay your rounds out like pictured below in the shape of a four leaf clover. Then top with some of your green basil pesto.
TIP:  when you place crescents or any dough like this close together or touching, you will need to bake longer then suggested to get center of dough done.  Our clover took about 20 minutes to bake.  Note this recipe was tested at a high altitude.  Bake until crescents are golden brown and dough is fully baked, even in the center of the clover. 

Here is what it will look like before you bake it. 

Crescent rounds will pull apart easily for serving.  This recipe makes 16 rounds.
