From my experience i have found... Pillsbury is better than generic. I once had a host get 1 generic and I Pillsbury Cresent Roll Dough. I made a braid 1/2 and 1/2. The Pillsbury became twice as large during the baking time. Taste though was pretty similar. But texture was lighter with Pillsbury. I have noticed no difference with Pillsbury Regular vs. Pillsbury Light Cresent Roll Dough. I have also had a host buy 1/2 and 1/2. We couldn't tell which was which, even knowing one was light, after it baked. Dough is easiest to work with when cold. Always instruct your host to keep the dough in the fridge til you get there.
