  • 1 package (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons hot water
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract


  1. Separate the crescent roll dough into 4 rectangles; press seams to seal. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, butter and cinnamon; spread over 2 rectangles. Top with remaining 2 rectangles. Starting from a long side, cut each rectangle into 8 strips. Twist each strip several times; seal the ends together.
  2. Place on greased baking sheets. Bake at 375° until golden brown, 10-12 minutes. Immediately remove to wire racks. Combine the glaze ingredients; brush over warm twists.
