    Pillsbury makes a reduced fat product. You might be able to find private label too (store brand).

    Heck, for that matter, I have a recipe to make your own. Here ya go [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Crescent Rolls ... 1 point

    This recipe makes 48 rolls, that's quite a lot. If you want this scaled to a lower number, it can easily be done using MasterCook.

    Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    1 cup skim milk
    1/4 cup granulated sugar
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 envelope dry yeast
    1 1/2 tablespoons warm water -- 105 to 115 degrees
    1/8 cup reduced fat margarine -- melted
    1/2 whole egg
    3 cups unbleached flour

    In a one quart saucepan, heat milk almost to the boiling point. Add sugar and salt. Cool to lukewarm.

    In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add milk mixture, margarine, egg, and three cups flour. Mix until smooth.

    By hand, stir in remaining flour until well blended. Cover and refrigerate several hours or overnight.

    Dough will be very sticky. Add enough extra flour to make a soft dough. Then, punch down dough and divide into thirds.

    Roll each third into a twelve inch circle. Cut each circle into sixteen pie-shaped wedges. Roll each wedge into a crescent shape. Place on prepared baking sheets. Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled in size.

    Bake in a 375 degree oven for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
