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.
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.

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???
