Cinnamon Crescents

A few weeks ago I asked my facebook readers for their favorite brunch recipes. I was in the process of planning for my cookie exchange and wanted some new inspiration. Ally's Sweet and Savory Eats shared this recipe with me. Her cinnamon crescents looked so good but I already knew I had plenty of sweet options so I tucked it away for another time.

Our family tried these a couple days ago for breakfast. The kids and I loved them, my husband's not much of a sweet he doesn't count. It's the perfect way to enjoy a cinnamon roll but without all the work.  They are seriously so simple to make, I can't wait to make them again!

Cinnamon Crescents

1 tube crescent rolls
4 tbsp butter, softened
1/4 c sugar
1/4 c packed brown sugar
Cinnamon {Just a little bit, I sort of eyeballed it, 1/4-1/2 tsp}
1/2 c flour

2 tbsp butter, softened
1-1/2 c powdered sugar
Splash of vanilla extract
Splash of milk

Unroll crescent rolls and flatten onto a nonstick cookie sheet. In a bowl mix together butter, both sugars, cinnamon and flour. Sprinkle on top of crescent rolls, I sort of patted the mixture evenly all over. Bake at 350 for 12-13 mins or until they are a light golden brown. For frosting, mix all ingredients together, add additional milk if needed to reach your desired consistency. Drizzle over warm crescents and serve. Makes 8
