These were so tasty! My husband cleaned most of them off the plate. I halved the recipe which worked very nicely and still came out great! Just watch out because they do not brown. I ended up overcooking them a little bit because I was waiting for that "golden" color that crescent rolls usually turn. But then again I'm used to the ones that come in a tube. Maybe if you wash it in egg white it will brown up nicely. Thanks for the tasty and easy recipe!!
