As you roll up each sweet potato half in the crescent roll, tuck the ends in. They don't have to be perfect, they don't have to be sealed so it's okay if the sweet potatoes aren't completely covered.

After you finish rolling them up, place in an 8"x8" glass baking dish with the pointy end of the crescent roll facing down. If you are doubling this recipe, use a 9"x13" glass baking dish.
