LOVE these - I am a complete fool for the caramel soooo I do 3/4 cup butter and nuts, 1 1/4 cups brown sugar and 1 1/2 T water that makes them extra gooey!
Fabulous! I used candied pecans and cut the recipe in half since I only had one can of crescent rolls. Thanks for a great recipe, Elissa!
This was a Pillsbury Bake Off winning prize for Lois Ann Groves and she won $25,000 for it. I commend you on your great taste - these are really great. I was going to post it, as well. They are awesome - thanks for posting, Diane :)
