    What an interesting idea–using refrigerated rolls as the foundation for a dessert. I wonder if they give a flaky texture like a pastry would.

      My mom has a few stand-by recipes that use crescent rolls as a base, one of them is a coffee cake type bar with cinnamon and sugar sprinkled over the top. It does give a flaky texture, and a nice butter taste!

    Wow, those sound good. And easy. I love easy. Can’t wait for cool weather to come so I can do some baking.
