what do they mean?

I'm thinking maybe puff pastry? Am I even on the right track?

Thanks in advance,

They mean croissant dough! They call those cresecent rolls over there. You can buy tins of it in Asda with the other pastry stuff.

Okay - have done a quick search on Tesco and can't find anything that looks similar! So is it tinned dough? Does it have a specific name?

Sorry to be a pain - I am just confused. I never thought that croissants came in tins ...

I've seen it in Tesco. It is sort of a cardboard can with metal top and bottom and you twist it open. It is in the fridge with chilled pastry etc.

I'm intrigued to know what recipe you are making.

One of the first words to learn in the 'Tricolore'(?) french book was Croissant = crescent shaped roll how weird I rememebr that after 30 years

Thanks for the link ... I now know vaguely what I am looking for! I guess I never considered buying croissants in anything other than the ready-made form so I never knew that croissant-dough existed. Then the "crescent roll" thing just confused me. Don't the Americans just call them croissants too?

Oh, I've been given a recipe for some sort of tomato/cheese pinwheel thingy which says 'crescent roll dough', hence the confusion.

Pillsbury croissant dough in the fridges at the supermarket.

Americans call them cross-ants.
