    Just made these, turned out great! My 6 yr old daughter loved them.

    I used Annie’s Crescent roll dough. It is only 220 grams for a roll so they turned out as 6 bit sized muffins but worked better for the kids anyways.

    390*F for 15 minutes was perfect for the smaller size portion I used.
