    Growing up, We’d use yeasted bread dough to make these. Today, to make this version, We couldn’t find Crescent Rolls so We grabbed the little biscuits and rolled them out very thin and used those instead. Yum!

    Made these this morning for Easter breakfast. I liked the name that the lady who first made these called them better "Empty Tomb Rolls" Very appropriate for Easter and that is what first made me want to try them! Delicious, whole family loved them!

    These are the perfect treat for a last minute dessert or late-night snack! So quick and easy, and I always have the ingredients on hand. When you don’t want to make a large batch, just use one tube of crescent rolls.
