yum... cinnamon buns...

 If you're looking for something sweet on the weekend for brunch, try these cheater Cinnamon Buns!

The original recipe called for a glaze made from powdered sugar, vanilla and heavy cream but truth be told- I think you'd be in a diabetic coma from sweetness overload. These did not need any further embellishing as they were PLENTY sweet.
The 'cheater' part is refrigerated crescent rolls.
Pillsbury-type. 
You just pinch the triangles together so that you've got one continuous piece of dough...

 Sprinkle on some cinnamon & sugar, pop into the oven and in less time than it takes to make a pot of coffee and set the table, you've got cinnamon buns fresh from the oven!


Cinnamon Buns

1 tube crescent rolls
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Melt half the butter in a glass pie plate; add brown sugar and stir to combine. Unroll the crescent dough and press the seams together. Spread with the remaining half of the butter. Combine cinnamon and sugar; sprinkle over buttered dough. Roll into a tight 'log' and cut into 8 pieces. Place in buttered pie plate. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. 

We ate them fresh from the oven so I can't tell you whether or not they're better cool...
I just know they were good and sweet. Perfect for a lazy Sunday morning.

xo,

Love your art, but I'm going to be fond of the recipes you post, too, it seems! I just found out recently that you can buy the crescent dough in a single piece. Who knew???
