  2. Unroll your crescent dough and lay down as 4 rectangles on a greased cookie sheet making sure you press the triangles together to form the rectangles.

  3. Mix together your sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.

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

  5. Take the two non-buttered rectangles and put those on top of your buttered and cinnamon/sugar rectangles. Press edges together.
