Crescent Rolls Recipe??

Hello all,

Last year we missed Thanksgiving with the family because of work, but my husband made these AWESOME crescent rolls anyways and invited his mother for dinner over that weekend.  She loved them, which coming from her, is a major accomplishment.  

This year, when he tried to find the recipe, he couldn't find it online.  He tried another one, but it wasn't as good.  His mother has been on his case about how good those rolls were last year, and would like to have some for Christmas this year.

I don't remember much about the recipe he used last year.  I remember him mentioning that the butter was frozen, not just refrigerated.  He remembers the blog where he got it from was very in-depth with lots of photos.  His mother remembers the rolls being flaky and buttery.

I'm just looking for some help finding the right recipe to try again.  I wish he had printed out the recipe last year, but sometimes he relies on his photographic memory too much :P

I always thought croissants were a lot more time consuming to make.

As far as I can tell, croissants are more of a pastry and crescents are more of a roll/bun.  Which makes me wonder if he used a crescent roll or croissant recipe :P

I've always assumed crescent rolls were just an Americanized version of croissants, but I guess the only times I've ever had crescent rolls they were wrapped around lil' smokies and the dough came in a tube.
