This came out perfect with (like others mentioned) half the filling mixture. Next time I may even use a little less than half of the sugar (like 1/3 cup). I laid the crescent unrolled and flat...

UN.BE.lieeeeeeavable! i halved the recipe, and added a splash of almond extract to the frosting. i also spread the filling, then rolled the dough up, loaf-style, and it came out looking & smel...
