Do you kids ask for food ALL. DAY. LONG? Mine do. I admit it gets a little annoying, but we finally set up some snack bins in the pantry that the kids know they are always allowed to have if they just ask. Mind you, we do have some rules but the kids know they get a “snack” in between breakfast and lunch as well as between lunch and dinner. Even though we have these snacks Lily and I often like to make a few “treats” for the family to enjoy through out the day.

One of those treats is a recipe we found a few years ago from Little Birdie Secrets for Cinnamon Crescent Twists. It’s a super simple treat that takes minutes to throw together and is one the kids LOVE! I mean, who doesn’t love sugar, cinnamon and butter wrapped up in a cut up Crescent roll, right?!

Spread melted butter onto 2 of the rectangles and sprinkle a little less than half the cinnamon/sugar mixture onto those rectangles.

Love these, Kristyn! My kids are crazy about cinnamon twists from our local bakery, but next time I’ll try making my own this way instead. Sharing!

Kat

Mine are in the oven right now!! So excited to try them- for breakfast!! Thanks! Definitely going to share because it’s so simple!

    How did these turn out? Hope you liked them as much as my family does!!

Elizabeth

TB?

Tiffany

I found this recipe thru pinterest 🙂 Was wondering if you think these would freeze well? If so, before or after baking?

    Lil' Luna

    Unfortunately, I have never tried freezing these before. I would imagine they would work but I don’t think they would taste as well. If you HAVE to freeze them I woul thinking freezing them after you bake might work better. 😉

i just made these but they’re not crispy like I would like. Any suggestions?

    stephanie

    You can try this: after you cut into strips, press all edges completely closed to keep the filling inside, twist as directed, but instead of baking, try frying in 350° oil for a crispy outside and soft inside. 🙂 i did not try this theory, but it sounds plausible.

My daughters are hungry a lot and are whining that they want food
