    Very good! I forgot to add maple extract, so I just threw a bit into glaze:)

    This is an excellent recipe! The technique is great for a beautiful bread. This would work with any type of dough, and you can even experiment with different fillings. I made this with home made white bread dough, and the family LOVED it!

    This is a really great bread and goes wonderfully with a cup of coffee in the morning. I was looking for a recipe that I could use up some crescent rolls that were quickly approaching their expiration date - and what a wonderful use for these rolls. I will definitely be using this recipe A LOT!
