Cinnamon Crescent Rolls ~ Easy treats for breakfast any day of the week!

Cinnamon Crescent Rolls ~ Easy treats for breakfast any day of the week!

What’s your perfect Saturday morning look like?

Mine is relaxing as Miss K wakes up. The hubby feeding her breakfast while I make a quick breakfast treat, brew up some coffee, all while still in my PJ’s and robe. Then after breakfast it would be lounging around on the couch relaxing with the family. Oh why don’t we throw in a little snowfall outside since it’s Christmas too?

Or I’d be at my mom’s while she made me the coffee and breakfast treat. Yup that sounds more like it

! Sometime it’s just nice to be taken care of.

Now onto what my Saturday mornings really look like. Stumble out of bed, grab my robe, stumble to Miss K’s room thinking why on earth do you think you need to wake up so early? Didn’t anyone tell you to sleep in on the weekend? Make a bottle with one eye open, stumble over to the couch and feed Miss K. After that’s done it’s time scarf down some cold cereal while juggling a child. I might sneak some coffee in at this point. Now in all fairness my hubby does usually get up and help so I’m probably exaggerating a tad bit!

I did have a close to perfect Saturday morning the other weekend and it included these yummy little creations. These are perfect for Saturdays where you want a treat, but don’t want to wait for an hour or two for something. So if you need a treat this Saturday check these out!

    My perfect Saturday morning would be if omeone made these for me and served them to me in bed with my coffee:) THey just sound so yummy and easy to make. I’d love if you shared them ver at Whatcha Whipped Up Wednesday Hope to see you there!

  • Joe and Chrissi

    These are WONDERFUL! We have made them 2 weekends in a row and have thoroughly enjoyed them each time. Delish!

  • Melissa @ My Recent Favorite Books

    Sounds like a easy recipe! Thanks!

  • Lindsey Ploessl

    For the powdered sugar, is it 1/4 cup or 1/4 tbsp? Thanks!

  • Jessep

    I tried making these with big and buttery crescents and country crock butter and they came out all weird. Do you think it’s because I didn’t use original crescents and stick butter?

    • Julie Evink

      I think you would need to use regular butter!

  • Liz S

    This is exactly what I was wanted to fill a craving today. I accidentally ignored your directions for the glaze and it came out runny, but still delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  • Karen

    This was good! I made these like a dunkaroo thing. So I didn’t glaze on the icing but more like made it on the side. My husband loved it!

    • Julie Evink

      So glad you enjoyed it Karen! Sounds like a great option!

  • Susan

    Made a batch of these yesterday. My husband wants two batches today. They are delicious?

    • Julie Evink

      I don’t blame him! So glad you enjoyed them Susan!

  • Peapod

    I made these and the cinnamon sugar butter oozed everywhere and they definitely didn’t look like yours. They tasted good but wee messy and not pretty. What happened?
