Cinnamon Rolls

1 tube crescent (I use Pillsbury's Crescent Creations)
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 Tbl. cinnamon
1 cup powdered sugar
2 Tbl. milk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a round cake pan with non-stick spray. Roll crescent on a sheet of waxed paper. Brush with 1/2 of the butter. Evenly sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Roll into a tight log. Using a serrated knife cut the log into 10 pieces. Place in the cake pan. Bake 10-12 minutes or until the tops are lightly brown. Mix remaining butter, powdered sugar and milk. Spoon evenly over hot rolls.

Changes - try a very thin coating of applesauce added after the butter. Apple butter is good but you may want to cut down on the amount of cinnamon since apple butter has some in it. A thin coating of strawberry jam, not preserves, works well. When adding one of these ingredients I usually cut the oven down to 350 degrees and bake the rolls 12-15 minutes due to the moisture in the additions. And don't forget, you can also add chopped nuts.

that sounds like a very easy to make rolls. i just made caramel monkey bread this morning using frozen bread dough. they needed more caramel but otherwise were delicious.
