I started with 3 tubes of crescent rolls. Cut each of the rolled up cinnamon rolls in 3 pieces. I then put them in a 13x9 baking pan. They were probably bigger than the original ones. But! That didn't make them last any longer!! These can vanish right before your eyes! They were absolutely yummy!! Such an easy way to get such a great treat! Thanks Nurse Di, these will be a regular here.

There is a serious problem with this recipe. They are tiny and disappear into thin air immediately. I made them tonight and my whole family wants them bigger and lots more of them. Guess I'll be doubling your recipe and not cutting them into so many pieces. They are wonderful, easy and quick to make. Thanks for a great recipe.

Oh so quick and oh so fabulous! These are so yummy for all their simplicity. I did put a layer of butter on the crescent rolls before the cinnamon/sugar. These were gone before they ever even cooled off!!
