Last Thursday (yes I know a few days behind here) I was getting ready to make some breakfast for my boys. I had a spare can of crescent rolls hanging around, because I always keep a some in the fridge. They are handy little buggers to keep around. Anyhoo, I was wanting to make them something fun and yummy so I found this pin from a few weeks back and thought it fit the bill: http://iowagirleats.com/2011/11/23/8-minute-mini-cinnamon-rolls/
I cannot tell you how much this INFURIATES me! I don’t know why but I get irrationally angry at that stupid dough. I can tell you it didn’t affect the taste at all…
Mine made 16 small cinnamon rolls. Bake them according to the directions on the crescent package. While they are baking prepare an icing of powdered sugar and milk. I didn’t make the maple icing from the original pin because it didn’t sound great to me. I made a couple batches of the stuff trying to get the right consistency. I will tell you that you need a TINY amount of milk and a LARGE amount of powdered sugar. Like maybe 1 tsp of milk to 1/4 cup powdered sugar. Just keep mixing in the sugar until you get a thicker icing.
They were delicious. My picky nine year old took one bite and deemed then uneatable, but the rest of the family enjoyed them. They were even good cold.
