A sweeter dough that is then topped with cream cheese, fruit, nuts, etc. Depending on the recipe you will find the toppings do vary.
Some bakeries might sell pastry dough, but you will find at local grocery stores more than likely you will not find true pastry dough. You can use crescent rolls in replace.
