These are so easy to make, you can even sprinkle some finely chopped nuts in the cinnamon/sugar mix. Make certain to drizzle the icing on top of the crescents while they are still warm, the icing will set firmly. The recipe can be doubled.

Yummy little treats! We had these for breakfast and everyone enjoyed them. I used a little vanilla extract in the glaze instead of almond, otherwise made as specified. The marshmallow leaked out of a couple of them but they were still great - thanks for sharing!
