Expert Tips

Keep refrigerated crescent dinner rolls refrigerated until ready to use. If filled roll of dough is too soft when slicing, place in refrigerator about 15 minutes or until firm.

If you like coconut, add the amount specified to the cream cheese filling. Sprinkle additional coconut over the glaze.
