      This is SOOO good! I first saw this recipe in Bon Appetit, the Nov. 2006 issue. We have used cherry pie filling, blueberries, even apricot pie filling...delicious with any of them! On the Bon Appetit site, there was a tip that I really liked: forget the baking sheet and just place the crescent rolls on the bottom of a 9x13" pan, top with filling, place second package of rolls over it and bake. No seeping and easy to cut. Serve warm with some raw sugar sprinnkled on top and wait for oooh's and aahhh's from your family and friends. Thanks for posting Juenessa!
