These “pillows” aren’t what anyone would consider gourmet, but they are still pretty darn great!

I saw a recipe similar to this on Pinterest the other day. I didn’t pin it, but when I went grocery shopping later in the day, it popped into my mind.

So I bought what I thought were the right ingredients and just winged it.

Who cares if they’re not gourmet – these look yummy!

I don’t know what constitutes “gourmet” but these were delish and a huge hit at a party. I doubled and used regular crescent instead of jumbo. Can’t wait to try jumbo for dinner!
