Cinnamon Roll Crescents

Published September 16, 2012 by thepinkgourmet

If you are looking for a quick weekend breakfast you should try this recipe.  These are easy to make and taste good as well.  They are light and fluffy!

Cinnamon Roll Crescents


What you need: 
2 cans refrigerated crescent rolls
1 stick butter, softened
½ cup white or brown sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon

½ cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons milk

Heat oven to 350°F. In small bowl, combine butter, sugar and cinnamon; beat until smooth. Take dough out of roll and lay triangles on cookie sheet. The original recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of cinnamon mixture on each triangle but we used less. Roll up each, starting at the widest side, as you would normally do for crescent rolls. Place each cinnamon filled crescent roll onto a baking sheet. Bake at 350°F. for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.

In small bowl, blend all glaze ingredients, adding enough milk for desired drizzling consistency. Drizzle over warm rolls.

The first thing you want to do is mix up the softened butter, the cinnamon, and sugar(brown or white).  I used a combination of both kinds of sugar.

Blend until smooth!!

Next unroll your crescent rolls.

Spread the butter, cinnamon sugar mixture over the crescent rolls.

Roll up, starting at the widest end. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10 to 15 minutes until golden brown.


While the crescent rolls are baking make the glaze.  You need powdered sugar, milk and vanilla.


Mix until  you get the desired consistency you want.

This is what they look like when they are done.

Drizzle the glaze over the warm rolls!  Didn’t I tell you these were easy to make.  This would be fun to make with your kids.

I give this recipe out of 4……

  • I found and copied a recipe today from a chuch fund raising cookbook that was old. I picked it up at a thrift store. The recipe is called Cinnamon Puffs. It is the yeast version of your French Breakfast Muffins. I think this will be fun to try. It would not of caught my eye had it not been for your recipe.
