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.
You just pinch the triangles together so that you've got one continuous piece of dough...
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.
