You can see how simple these are to make but they are wonderful with a cup of coffee in the morning. Anyone can make these and they are perfect for brunch! Great to enjoy on the weekend since you can throw these together in no time and most everyone loves them.

I haven’t tried the Hawaiian Crescent Rolls in this recipe but I bet those would be delicious too! These would be wonderful drizzled with a powdered sugar glaze.
