Mini Cinna-Crescent Rolls

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had cinnamon rolls for Sunday breakfast. Not the slave in the kitchen home made cinnamon rolls, the pre-made refrigerated dough in a can kind. My brother and I actually still prefer them to the “real thing”. Now that I’m “all grown up” and married, I still buy them! 

Before going to sleep last night, my husband was already looking forward to cinnamon rolls for breakfast. Unfortunately we didn’t have any. But I wasn’t about to disappoint! I had a can of crescent rolls so I decided to wing it. The experiment was successful so now the photographs won’t be going to waste! A blog post has been born. 🙂
