This is a recipe for the easiest almost cinnamon rolls that you can make. Make them for yourself or for a group. It’s easy as pie, well, easier. This is my adaptation from a recipe I found on Pinterest.
1 Pillsbury Crescents Roll
1 TBSP Butter / Margarine, melted
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1/2 TBSP Cinnamon
1/4 cup Confectionery Sugar
1 TBSP Milk
1. Roll the crescent rolls out onto a flat surface and separate each triangle.
2. Add a small amount of the melted butter/margarine onto each triangle, just enough to cover the dough.
3. In a separate bowl, mix the brown sugar and cinnamon. Cover each triangle with a coating of the sugar mixture.
(Optional: Add an apple slice to the wide end of the crescent.)
4. Roll the dough, wide end to the middle end.
5. Once all doughs are rolled up, re-roll crescents in left over mixture on flat surface.
(Tip: I create crescents on the cooking sheet I am baking them on. This allows for excess sugar/cinnamon mixture to cook and absorb into the dough.)
6. Place on baking sheet and cook at 350 degrees until brown (around 10 minutes).
7. Mix the confectionery sugar and milk until reaching the desired consistency.
(Optional: Mix in a few drops of vanilla, coffee or other flavors to add a taste to the topping.)
8. Drizzle over warm crescents once they come out of the oven.
Years ago, I was visiting with my friend Audrey and happened to stay for dinner. I loved going over as she would create these delicious meals that I would never think of. Case in point, this recipe, and it was easy enough for me to remember and is great for just one or two people.
Ham (steak or slices)
Cream Cheese Directions:
1. Roll out croissant dough and leave in rectangle shape.
2. Place ham on one half of the croissant dough (as much / little as you’d like).
3. Place a dollop of cream cheese on top of the ham.
4. Fold over other half of croissant dough to create a pouch. Be sure the seems are pressed firmly.
5. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes, until golden brown.
