“These simple little orange rolls begin with refrigerated crescent dough. Quick to make but sure to make a good impression early in the morning! From the Foote Creek Bed & Breakfast in Aberdeen, South Dakota where speedy but impressive food is a must first thing each day. ;o) If you are living in warmer climates, it may help to place the dough in the freezer for a few minutes before slicing.”
