packed brown sugar
2 (8 ounce) cans
refrigerated crescent rolls
chopped toasted almonds
These were wonderful tasting rolls. They need to be baked in a deep muffin pan as they spill over. Make sure to place a cookie sheet under pan while baking. I used sliced toasted almonds instead of chopped - they were very good.
I love this recipe! The buns are flaky and taste like they are made from scratch. Every recipe I've tried from Eleanor Johnson has been first rate! Thanks Eleanor!
I took these rolls to a ladies' brunch with 12 women in attendance. I didn't take any leftovers home with me! Even the aerobics instructor indulged after she heard the comments everyone was making. This recipe is definitely a keeper! Yum!
These tasted absolutely delicious. Do agree with Karen in CA - put a cookie sheet under the pan while cooking, also used sliced toasted almonds.
Very good, they taste like they should be harder to prepare. Make extras!
These almond rolls are fantastic! I took them to a neighborhood coffee, and they were a huge hit. I didn't use the butter, nuts and almond extract as a filling, instead I spread Solo brand almond filling on each rectangle, and then rolled them up. Also, I sliced each rectangle into 6 rolls. (for a total of 24 rolls made) I would think slicing them into only 3 per roll would make them too big for me. I prefer a smaller roll since they are quite rich. Watch the baking time. By making them smaller, they took less time to bake. Make sure to turn the pans over RIGHT AWAY when taking them out of the oven. The brown sugar mixture hardens quickly if you don't and it will be difficult to get out them out of the pan. After they were baked, I sprinkled the sliced toasted almond on top of the glaze. They looked really pretty, and were so tasty! You will love them.
Easy and great almond flavor. Will make again.
THIS IS SUCH A WONDERFUL, QUICK AND EASY RECIPE!!! Great "no fail" recipe for children! I substituted uncooked apples (just one regular ole' deliscious for six buns) with a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg for the nuts on some buns and on the other buns I inserted milk chocolate chips. All three types are perfect! DEFINATELY USE A DRIP PAN! Great to take to brunches or for gifting!
