easy cinnamon twists

Today is my (Jessica's) birthday! That means I am in the mood for some treats.  These cinnamon twists are super easy and tasty. Any recipe that only takes 4 ingredients is an automatic winner in my book! My boys love to help me make them, which makes for a fun activity as well.

Easy Cinnamon Twists
2 T. Sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 can (8 oz) refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
2 T. butter, melted

Heat oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl mix together the sugar and cinnamon and set aside. Unroll the crescent dough and separate it into 4 rectangles. Press each into a 6x4 inch rectangle. (press perforations together to seal).
Brush the tops of 2 rectangles with melted butter and sprinkle with about half of the sugar mixture. Top each with remaining rectangle; press edges lightly. Brush tops with melted butter.
With a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut each rectangle stack lengthwise into 6 strips. Twist each strip 3 times and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 9-11 minutes or until golden brown. Brush tops with any remaining butter and sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture! Enjoy!

I made some similar ones with the bread sticks (it's what I had in the fridge)- not so good. I bet the crescents are much more moist!

These look so good. I love that the ad when it popped up in my google reader was for losing weight. Not if I make these :)
