Quick Cinnamon Crescents


It seems like we've ended up with an abundance of cheap Crescent rolls lately! I'm sure I'm not the first person to think of doing this - but I don't recall seeing the recipe anywhere - I just went into the kitchen and whipped it up!

Quick Cinnamon Crescents

Open 1 tube crescent rolls. Unroll each crescent and spread with butter or margarine. Sprinkle with brown sugar, cinnamon and chopped nuts. Roll up and place in prepared baking dish. Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes.

Drizzle powdered sugar glaze over the top - mmmmm!

Enjoy!

Hi Monica,
You can also make mini cinnamon rolls with crescents. When you take them out of the tube don't take them apart. Roll them out flat, butter it, sprinkle sugar and cinnamon, roll it up into a tube shape and slice into bite size cinnamon rolls! My aunt used to do that when we were little and spent the night. It was my favorite!

Hi Monica, you can also make mini cinnamon "rolls" with crescent rolls. You just separate the cresent dough into two rectangles, spread each with 1 tbsp butter, and cover each with cinnamon sugar. Then you roll them up and cut each larger roll into 6 pieces, place into muffin pan and bake for 15 min at 375. Then drizzle with powdered sugar glaze.

Good either way! :)

What a great idea! The possiblities are endless with crescents rolls. I wonder how ham and cheese would work?

I haven't ever done this, but think I will! I might even put it on the Simple Family Supper menu as an easy *bonus* treat. Is that OK with you??
Have a great day!

These sound quite yummy! Great idea!

I had a package of crescents to use up, too, so my dd made these, subbing raspberries for the blueberries:

We've had them with the blueberries in the past. They are yummy either way.

Monica....hello from (extremely) south Alabama. This is SO funny! I just did the same thing the other night...with one slight variation. Pillsbury is now making crescent roll dough in one sheet, for those of us who are Pampered Chef junkies. It's called "Recipe Secrets" (I think!). It's the same crescent roll dough you are used to, just with no seams and rolls out into one nice big rectangle. I rolled my out on my stoneware barpan, brushed with melted butter, sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon....rolled them up from the short side of the dough...but in about 7-8 cinnamon rolls. Bake at 375 until golden brown. I whipped up the regular glaze of milk and powdered sugar, but whisked in some real melted (salted) butter. It emulsified and made a little bit of a butter cream topping, similar to those at the cinnamon roll shops. The salted butter is necessary so that it offsets the sweet sugar...gives a balanced glaze.

By the way....I've been reading for the last year or so, not sure why it's taken me this long to leave a little note, but THANK YOU for all of the time that you put into this blog. I really enjoy it and read every day. I have been blogging, but not seriously. I am about to change that and have a professional overhaul my blog so that I will get serious with it. I will let you know....you'll have to stop by and visit. You can go there now www.pairofbartletts.blogspot.com and www.thebartletthome.wordpress.com
