Quick Cinnamon Roll-ups

Cinnamon and sugar sell very well just about everywhere I have taken them.  They are especially enjoyed in the early morning here at home.  This morning I made another batch, a quick batch.  It is still to early to tell today as it is only 3 AM but they are cooked and ready to go...about the only nice thing about waking up in the middle of the night is time to make early morning food...

Cinnamon Roll-ups the way I made them this time:

1 can Pillsbury Crescent Roll Sheets
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup butter, melted  (yes, I use real dairy butter)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Line a sheet pan/cookie sheet with waxed paper (or can use parchment paper.)

Lightly sprinkle flour on work surface.  Open can of crescent dough and roll out onto flour-covered surface.  Using a pizza cutter, cut into three strips the long way and two strips the short way so you have six squares of dough.  Now cut diagonally across each square to make 12 triangles.

With a pastry brush, brush butter onto the entire top of the dough.  In a small bowl, mix the sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over the surface, covering all the dough.  From the long end of each triangle roll each piece of dough into a crescent shape and place on paper-covered sheet.  Bake for 10-14 minutes, until set and lightly browned.

Remove from paper and place on cooling rack.  (You really do want to remove from the waxed paper while hot out of the oven because they have a tendency to stick to the paper due to sugar/cinnamon solidifying into rock...)

Sit back and watch the munchers enjoy.
