"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!"
