  • 1 package of Crescent Rolls
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white Karo syrup
  • Cinnamon and Sugar


  • Take the crescent rolls and place flat. Press perforations together (into four squares or all in one). In a round cake pan, melt your butter. Then brush or spoon some of the melted butter onto the dough. Shake or sprinkle cinnamon and sugar to taste. 
  • Roll the dough like a jelly roll.  Place roll(s) in freezer for 5-10 minutes for an easier cut.  Remove from freezer and cut, getting 9-10 pieces out of four smaller rolls or 36-40 out of one long roll.
