I light scented candles all year round, but the sugar cookie dessert scented candles come out in full force during the holidays! I just got the best smelling candle at Walmart (who knew they had good candles?). Better Homes claims it’s a “Candied Caramel Pecan” candle, but I swear it smells like hot, delicious cinna-buns.
After hours of inhaling the delicious aroma I HAD to have cinna-buns! Luckily for me, my boyfriend likes to experiment in the kitchen so he took this irrational craving as his cue to start cooking. We didn’t have much in the house, but somewhere in the back of our fridge he found crescent roll dough! After popping the seal and kneading it together he coated the top of the flattened dough with half a stick of melted butter and then sprinkled a generous helping of cinnamon, sugar, and brown sugar (2 parts white sugar, 1 part brown sugar, 1 part cinnamon).
Then he rolled up the dough, cut each roll (about half an inch thick), and threw it in a glass casserole dish. Finally, he topped the buns with a tad more butter, sugar, and cinnamon and threw them in the oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
What came out was heavenly! The flaky dough of the crescent rolls was WAY better than the gooey consistency that usually accompanies a cinna-bun. I highly recommend trying this super simple semi-homemade recipe. Maybe Sandra Lee should pick it up for her show, it was awesome! I hope you all are enjoying the holiday season as much as I am. This is your cue to go light all your scented candles, make yourself some crescent roll cinna-buns, and cozy up on your couch with your uggs on.
