National Cinnamon Crescent Day | Cinnamon Crescents – The Foodie Patootie

National Cinnamon Crescent Day | Cinnamon Crescents

I’m writing this during my morning break at work on Wednesday. It has just finished raining and now the sun is streaming through the massive windows behind me. I can’t see parts of my computer screen because of this, but having natural light in the office is totally worth it. With very limited sleep last night, today is already a struggle, but there is something about the sun, blue skies, and little drops of rain on the windows that makes me happy. Some of my day will probably be spent brainstorming by the fountains outside and it’ll be glorious. Vitamin D really does change your mood.

Turns out, so do Cinnamon Crescents, fresh out of the oven.

National Cinnamon Crescents Day | Cinnamon Crescents

Before opening the oven and retrieving the cooked Cinnamon Crescents, the sweet, earthy smell permeates the house. This is what I love. It reminds me of cozy nights and blissful days. Cinnamon is warmth and anything made with this spice, especially something that is then baked, is something I want in my home.

The Cinnamon Crescents I made came from plain refrigerated crescent rolls, but I created a spread to put on them. It took me about 5 minutes and into the oven they went to make my home smell wonderful (and my stomach growl).

    My kids aren’t big fans of cinnamon, could I substitute maybe a jelly filling instead? Not sure what that would do to cooking time.
