This recipe was the $40,000 Grand Prize recipe from the 1980 Pillsbury Bake-Off contest by Mrs. Millicent A. Caplan of Tamarac, FL. I cut it out of Family Circle magazine dated 11/15/83.

Can't believe there's only been 1 review on this! We had this tonight and thought it deserves 5 stars. I did not use crescent rolls for the crust. I made a pie crust instead, only because I did not have cresent rolls.
