Cinnamon Sugar Crescents

Usually on Christmas morning, we have cinnamon rolls of some sort but I forgot to get some the last time I was at the store, so when we did our little family Christmas morning yesterday at home, I whipped these little gems up. We did have a roll of crescent dough, however. After a quick Pinterest search, I found this super yummy recipe that is sure to be repeated.

Cinnamon Sugar Crescent Rolls
1 roll of crescent dough in the can (I used Trader Joe's)

6 tablespoons butter, softened
¼ cup white sugar
2½ teaspoons cinnamon

2 tablespoons butter, melted
¼ cup + 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven according to package directions.
2. Place the unrolled and separate crescent rolls on an ungreased rimmed cookie sheet (one with sides- very important as the butter will melt all over).

1. In a small bowl, mix together the butter, sugar and cinnamon
2. Evenly spread the cinnamon butter over the crescent rolls and roll up tightly.
3. Bake according to package directions.

1. In a small bowl, mix together the butter, powdered sugar and vanilla until smooth.
2. Place in a zip lock bag and snip a tiny corner off (of just use a spoon like I did, because I was out of small bags).
3. Drizzle the glaze over the cinnamon rolls.

I dare you not to eat one right off the pan when they're done. The husband actually said "it tastes like a Krispy Kreme doughnut" and Finn thoroughly enjoyed his special breakfast treat.
