Delicious and so easy to prepare! I agree with SusieQusie . . . recipes were meant to be shared and enjoyed, not coveted and hoarded like national secrets LOL! This dish is good with a dash of nutmeg as well!

Try adding about 1 cup or so of fresh blueberries or raspberries before adding the second crescent roll. EXCELLENT!
