Easy and Delicious Crescent Cinnamon Rolls

Debbie, a friend from church, told me about this recipe for Crescent Cinnamon Rolls and I just had to try it myself. It's so easy to make and my kids absolutely love them!! I can tell this is gonna be a favorite at my house for sure.

All you need is:

2 packs of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
cinnamon
sugar
butter


There is no magic number to how much you will need of each of these ingredients. You just add as much or as little as you like.
Roll out both your crescent rolls and pinch together all the triangles so that you have two large rectangles. Then pinch the two rectangles together so that you have almost one large square.
Debbie said to lather the butter on with your hands, so I did. Messy but fun.
Sprinkle on as much cinnamon as you like. I wasn't stingy.
Same thing with the sugar. Don't be shy, the more the better!

Now start to roll the dough up into it looks like one long log.

It should look like this when you're done.
Use a knife and cut 1.5"-2" sections. They will look a little odd and may even come apart. Just press them back together and they'll be just fine. Stick these in the oven at 375 for about 12 minutes.
Now for the icing. You'll need about 2 cups of confectioners sugar, 3 tbs of Half & Half, and a 1/2 tsp of vanilla. You might have to play with this and add milk or sugar to give it the thickness that you like.

It should be thick enough so that it does not run easily off the spoon.

In the oven and almost ready.

When they're finished baking take them out and drizzle the icing all over! Eat 'em now when they're hot!! We would love to know.....has anyone tried these before?
