"I've always loves crescent rolls, but not all the fat that comes with them," shares Suzette Jones from her Tulsa, Oklahoma kitchen. "I decided to come up with my own lighter recipe—and this cheesy version was the result. Everyone at my house enjoys these...and I know your family will, too!"

"Very good!!! Melt in your mouth. If you don't want to make the triangles, you can simply cut them as traditional biscuits and they turn out just as well!"
