These are delicious but don't make too much of the filling. It is harder to put that much in a crescent than you think. You must make each crescent the same size or it is hard to bake them evenly. Great with a brunch or with coffee. Good coffee cake replacement. Rich don't eat too many or they are heavy in the stomach. Enjoy!!
