This recipe was inspired from a "re-gift" I received from a co-worker who gave it to me because she's had her fill of her sister's canned Maple Nut Butters given to her every year. Not knowing what to do with it - it sat in my refrigerator for a long time, before one day, feeling like eating a dessert but not having the time to do something complicated, I looked at a can of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls that I had then looked at the jar of nut butter and came up with this. I think you'll approve, this was delicious!
