      Made this as a special breakfast treat for the kids this morning. It was so simple and easy to prepare. And there weren't any complaints heard at the table either. Thanks for posting Sharon. Made and reviewed for the 49th AUS/NZ Recipe Swap.

      This is so good and much better than the canned or frozen cinnamon rolls! Made as is and liked that the crescents got a little crispy when they baked. I will cut back a little on the pecans next time for the DS's (for me it was perfect) otherwise wouldn't change a thing. Made for Sharon123 Cook-A-Thon.
