Good things come in small packages!

I recently bought 3 tubes of crescent roll dough, they were on sale and I had a coupon. Sometimes a good deal is hard for me to pass up! Pilsbury has unlimited ideas for the uses of a of their products so I decided to go look for some unique uses for their crescent roll dough and ran across this little gem - mini cinnamon crescents.

So easy, so good, and so adorably cute - these are going to become a regular at our house!

I made most of them sans raisins for my husband and unfortunately was not able to glaze these since I apparently am out of confectioner's sugar. Even sans the glaze, these were definitely a cute little breakfast treat!

Mini Cinnamon Crescents

1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® Crescent Recipe Creations™ refrigerated flaky dough sheet
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
4 teaspoons granulated sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon apple juice or milk

Heat oven to 375°F.

If using crescent rolls: Unroll dough; separate dough into 4 rectangles. Firmly press perforations to seal. If using dough sheet: Unroll dough; cut into 4 rectangles.

Spread 1 tablespoon butter evenly over each dough rectangle. In small bowl, mix granulated sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle evenly over rectangles. Sprinkle each with raisins. Starting with short side of each rectangle, roll up; pinch edges to seal. With serrated knife, cut each roll into 5 slices. Place slices, cut side down, in ungreased 8- or 9-inch square pan.

Bake 17 to 23 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix powdered sugar and apple juice until smooth. Drizzle over rolls. Serve warm.

It's hard for me to pass up those deals too! Now I have something to make when I find myself with an abundance of crescent rolls ... other than just eat them plain! Thanks!
