    Linorama's Note:

    Decadent! Starting with refrigerater crescent rolls makes this incredibly easy, but no one would ever guess. Whenever I take it somewhere I have started taking the recipe along, because people always ask for it. In fact, that's how I got it too!

      Definitely added to my list. Tried it out at Camp and boy was this recipe ever requested. Easy, tasty and impressive in appearance. Good job!

      These are absolutely wonderful! So easy to make (and who would have ever guessed they start out with crescent rolls). This is a great recipe when you need to come up with a desert on short notice. Thank you so much for sharing these, Linorama. :-)

      So easy and an instant hit at our house. I thought about making an almond icing to go on top but changed my mind because I was feeling lazy. It was great without but also would have been good with.
