Potluck Sunday: Maple Crescent Pull-aparts

I made these for breakfast this morning. I had 3 tubes of crescent rolls in the fridge and I was wondering what I was going to do with them, LOL. With Hubby on his low carb diet, I try not to make too many wonderful carb ladden dishes, since I don't want to make him suffer. But this morning I was in a crescent roll kind of mood. I remembered this recipe in my dessert file. It's been there forever, and I've never tried it until today. Mostly because I don't buy Maple Syrup too often. It was on sale last week, so I grabbed a bottle. These are really good. Tender and fluffy, with a maple sugar glaze and crunchy nuts. I love the buttery-ness of the crescent rolls with the maple glaze..... it's heavenly.

And the point of using reduced-fat crescent rolls would be......?

Looks delicious.

To make you feel less guilty about all that butter and sugar, LOL. I usually use regular crescents.
