    I made these today, modified the recipe, replaced the apple sauce with used Organic Earth Balance, a vegan butter, and mixed organic cane sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and ground cloves and sprinkled that on, as opposed to the one ingredient, cinnamon. I really liked the outcome. Thanks for sharing…:)

      Was the cinnamon, nutmeg, and ground cloves organic too? I hope so. I buy all my organic seasonings, and spices from my Harris Teeter grocery store, but I can also buy them from Walmart or online too.

    The “Print” button is not working. I had to right click and select “Open in new window” in order to print.

      Hi Kim, it is the standard size from Pillsbury, I think it is a 8oz package with 8 crescent rolls in it
