"Wow! These rolls are nothing short of scrumptious. I made them as directed, using dried orange peel, golden raisins, and a crescent dough sheet.

I had a couple of reservations as I worked. First, the amount of butter-sugar mixture seemed excessive once it was in the pan. (Nope, it was just right.). Second, I've had issues with using rolled-up crescent dough before: it doesn't seem to get "done". Cutting the dough into 12 pieces rather than the usually-specified 8 was just what the doctor ordered. I baked the rolls for 21 minutes, and might let them go a little longer next time.
WHen I make dinner rolls from crescent dough in the future, I will try cutting 12 pieces. So this recipe has given me another tasty breakfast bread as well as a valuable tip."
