“This Is my less sweet and less fat version of cheesecake bars, not that they are in any way a diet food. These are a hit no matter where they are served. You would never guess these are made with crescent rolls. There is never any left over. They can be served with honey or vanilla ice cream, if you want to add to the decadence!”
