Glazed Cinnamon Crescents

These little cinnamon crescents are a breeze to make and so good warm from the oven.
 They are full of cinnamon flavor and absolutely melt in your mouth. It's like a little cinnamon roll without all the hard work.
Unroll your crescents and separate each one and lay out on a cookie sheet. Spread some of the butter/sugar mixture on each roll.

Roll them up crescent roll style.

Try to pinch the ends shut as good as you can.  Some of your butter/sugar mixture will leak out anyway. That's fine if it does.
Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes.
Let cool slightly, remove from pan and drizzle the glaze over them.

Try not to eat them all at once!!!

Glazed Cinnamon Crescents

1 can crescent rolls
4 Tbsp butter softened
1/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Heat oven to 350. Stir together soft butter, sugar and cinnamon until combined.
Separate crescent rolls and lay out on a ungreased cookie sheet. Spread an equal amount of the sugar/ butter mixture on each crescent. Roll up starting at the wide end. Try to press the ends to seal. Some of the mixture will melt out.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or golden brown. Let cool slightly then drizzle the glaze over them.
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon butter softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
 1 Tbsp hot water more or less
Put powdered sugar in small bowl with the soft butter. Add just enough hot water to melt the butter and to achieve the desired consistency. Add vanilla. If you get it too thin add more powdered sugar.
