    Have you ever seen "What About Bob?" . . . you know, the scene where he's at dinner and can't stop saying, "MMMMMM"? Well, that was me when I was eating these! They are so fabulous I can barely describe it - sweet and rich and buttery. And so incredibly easy to make that it's almost dangerous. I'm glad I made only a half a batch, because otherwise I'm not sure I would have been able to stop eating them! (Now, don't think I ate the whole half batch; I had my family helping me . . . and my husband, 5-year-old and 3-year-old were equally pleased!) Cooking time of 25 minutes was perfect, and a half batch fit in an 8x8 square baking pan. You MUST try these! Reviewed for PAC.<br/><br/>ETA: You can also use an 8- or 9-inch deep dish pie pan to make a half batch.

    I used Pillsbury cressent roll rounds,and eliminated having to cut the rolls. Also,added 2 egg yokes and 1tsp. vanilla with the milk, and changed the amount of powdered sugar to 2 & 1/4 cups.My family "LOVED" it!!! Wonderful dessert and so easy to make!

    This is very delicious and I do not even like the canned crescent rolls! The sauce tastes like a baked custard on the rolls and is very yummy! My kids loved it. I did add 1 tsp. vanilla. This is good both warm (fresh from the oven) and at room temp. Thanks for this recipe.

    Delicious! I added raspberry and almond extract, vanilla and some brown sugar, and it is just the best thing I've ever eaten that takes less than 2 minutes to put together! Thanks for this!

    10/15/09 Even though it was a split on whether they were best warm or cold everyone agreed that they were YUM! (They were even good heated in the microwave for a few seconds for those that liked them warm.) I was a bit worried about the amount of liquid when I first poured it on but after baking it was perfect. Update 12/13/09: Made a few tweaks to this and they are now OUTSTANDINGLY YUM! I added a bit of vanilla and some cinnamon.
