This recipe is a slightly adapted version of the original recipe found in Beat This! -- a really fun cookbook written by Ann Hodgman. I received the cookbook as a present from my childhood friend Lynne in the early 90s (I'm assuming it was then because the book was published in 1993). I think there have been revised versions since then because mine doesn't look like the one pictured in the link above... anyway, look for it in your library or local bookstore!
Here's what you need (don't cringe when you read the ingredients list, be bold, these are really really good! Just enjoy how incredibly easy and non-labor-intensive they are!)
- 2 tubes Pillsbury Crescent Rolls (original)
- 3/4 c light brown sugar
- 6 T butter, softened
- 2 t ground cinnamon
- 1/4 t ground nutmeg
Cream together the sugars, butter, cinnamon and nutmeg, mixing the ingredients together well until you have a smooth paste.
Remove the dough from the tubes. Unroll the dough into sheets, gently separating each larger sheet into 4 rectangles. You should have a total of 8 rectangles.
Spread each rectangle with an equal amount of the butter & sugar mixture. Then roll up each rectangle into a log, starting with the short end. You're almost done for tonight -- wrap each log in a piece of plastic wrap and put them all in the fridge overnight.
|I haven't added all the rolls to the baking dish yet.|
Bake in a 375 degree oven for about 30 minutes but check them at 25 minutes.
I usually drizzle on confectioners sugar icing just to make them really decadent (mix confectioners sugar together with a little milk until desired consistency). Yum-O!!
