Step 3: Open the tubes of crescent roll dough and separate each triangle. Scoop about 1-2 tablespoons of the mixture onto the side end of each crescent roll triangle, then use a spoon to spread about 2/3 of the way up toward the point of the triangle (but do not spread all the way to the point). Roll the crescent rolls up starting at the wide end and moving to the point.
