Needed a "thank you" gift for someone.
Pulled out a pack of my trusty Crescent Big & Flaky rolls.



Rolled out the dough on parchement paper laid out on my kitchen counter.
Spread the surface with softened butter.
Mixed 1/3 cup of sugar with 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, added 2 tablespoons of crushed vanilla wafers, and 1/4 cup of chopped pecans. Spread the mixture over the buttered surface.



With parchment paper, I rolled the dough up horizontally.  Sliced into 1 inch slices.





Put each slice into sprayed muffin tin.  Makes 9 rolls.  Bake in 350 degree oven for 18 minutes or until lightly browned on top.  Remove from oven and place on wire rack until cooled.



In small bowl, place 1 cup 10x sugar, 1 TB of fresh lemon juice and 2 tsp. of water.  Whip together until it is the consistency to be able to drizzle.  Can add a bit more water if necessary.  Drizzle over cooled rolls.



Place on any plate of your choosing. I purchase pretty plates from the clearance shelves of stores and keep them on hand for when I need them.  This one is from Pier One.  Cover with plastic wrap.




If desired, wrap a new tea towel around the covered muffins.  A quick, easy, inexpensive gift, especially if the recipient is a "lemon lover".  Just a little something for you from my kitchen.

Lovely gift. Funny, I made
"mini-cinis" this past weekend using regular crescent rolls, butter, brown sugar and cinnamon, and confectioner's sugar frosting.I took pictures and considered posting about them, but never did. We are thinking alike it seems! Only I didn't give minw away...I ate them!! :-)

You're simply amazing. What I want to know is: How do you stay so small with all these goodies around? I'd be doing the "one for you; two for me" math as I readied the gift plate. Come to think of it, I just gained 2 pounds merely reading about these yummies.

Love your little somthings ...

You sure do have a gift for taking an ordinary can of rolls and turning them into something beautiful and delicious. The tea towel is the perfect finishing touch.

Brilliant idea! What is that stuff? is it the dough that cinnamon rolls are made from? I love those...but we dont get that stuff over here :( WE do however have really nice cinnamon rolls in our local supermarket :)
I am sure anyone would love to receive a gift like this such a clever thought!

Another great idea of yours ~ I think it would be great if you posted something like this once a week. The ideas seem simple enough for "the rest of us" and make me want to go out and hunt for a reason to thank someone!
