Mini-Cinnamon Rolls (from Crescent Dough)

You know you are desperate for a carb filled snack when you decide to whip up some cinnamon rolls in the middle of night.   But that is exactly what I did.  I didn't want to bother starting from scratch, and when I saw LifeIsTooShortToSkipDessert's recipe I knew it was the perfect solution
 
For 1 tube of Pillsbury crescent rolls you will need:
4 Tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp butter (melted)
1 Tbsp flour
 
I unrolled the crescent rolls onto parchment (just for easy clean up) and then mixed the sugar, cinnamon, butter and flour together to make the filling:
 
Don't separate the crescent dough into triangles, but leave the triangles paired in rectangular shapes (if they start to come apart just moosh them back together) and spread the filling onto the rectangles:
 
 Roll up the short side until you have a tube:
 
And then using dental floss (a cool trick) cut them into 3 small rolls:
Place them in a cooking-spray coated baking dish or on a cookie sheet:
 
 Bake for 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees and they will puff up and get all cinna-mini delicious.

After they cool slightly I added a quick glaze:
1/2 C powdered sugar
2 t milk
A few drops of vanilla extract

Drizzle it on and enjoy!  But trust me.. you won't be able to stop at just one:
