Isn't this a pretty way to dress-up a can of crescent rolls. Brushed with a sweet orange glaze, they take just a few minuted of preparation yet burst with flavor.
The very first time I made these was for a baby shower for a neighbor back in the 80's. If you are thinking ahead, they are also a lovey addition for Mother's Day Brunch.
