During the service one of my cousin's mentioned her crescent rolls.
Because really, not mentioning them just wouldn't have been right.
I had actually considered making a couple hundred copies of the recipe,
and handing them out at the service.......but didn't.
These rolls were at every family dinner.
They were kept in a top secret place until right before dinner was served.
Once her original, brown, Tupperware container was opened -
they were gone in a flash.
After looking at the recipe,
you will notice they're more like a dessert roll than a dinner roll.
However, in our family, if you waited until dessert to put one on your plate -
well, there wouldn't be any left to put on your plate.
A couple of weeks ago,
as we knew the day was drawing near -
when Aunt Deana would see Jesus face to face,
I attempted to make these gluten free.
Trust me - it wasn't the same.
So please go make some for your family.
I hope you love them as much as we do!
