Unroll remaining can of crescent dough; separate into 2 long rectangles. Pat out to form 13x9-inch rectangle, pressing seams together to seal. Place over pie filling to form top crust.

These are so good! I have made them several times and everyone loves them. I use apple pie filling the most with this. They are good either for breakfast or as a dessert. Yummy!!

The flavor is very good, but I did not like the way the crescent dough pastry turned out. Not flaky, but somewhat rubbery in texture. I will make this again but use puff pastry next time. ****AN update - 1st time I used the store brand crescent rolls, which I said were rubbery. I have made them a second time using the Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. This is a definite 5+ star rating. Thanks

Excellent! I used a little whipping cream instead of milk for the glaze and added a little vanilla extract (wanted to add almond, but was out) and scattered sliced almonds all over the top and it just set it off perfectly! Took it to an Easter breakfast and got tons of compliments!
