Crescent Christmas Tree Recipe

Crescent Christmas Tree

2 (8 oz.) cans Pillsbury Refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls

2 Tbsp. margarine, softened

2 Tbsp. sugar

1 tsp. cinnamon

Glaze:   ½ cup powdered sugar

1/4 tsp. vanilla

2 to 3 tsp. milk

Garnish:   Red and Green candied cherries, halved

Heat oven to 375 F.  Lightly grease cookie sheet.  Separate dough into 4 rectangles.  Firmly press perforations to seal.  Spread rectangles with margarine.  In small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle evenly over rectangles.

Starting at shorter side, roll up each rectangle; seal edge.  Cut each roll crosswise into 3 equal slices.  Place slices, cut side down, on greased cookie sheet to form tree shape.  Begin with 1 slice for top; arrange 2 slices just below, with sides touching.  Continue arranging a row of 3 slices, then a row of 4 slices.  Use remaining 2 slices for trunk.

Bake at 375 F. for 15 to 20 minutes or until deep golden brown.  Cool 3 minutes; carefully remove from cookie sheet.  Cool slightly on wire rack.

In small bowl, blend all glaze ingredients until smooth, adding enough milk for desired drizzling consistency.  Drizzle glaze over warm tree.  Garnish with candied cherry halves.  Serve warm.  12 rolls

Tip:  To reduce the fat in each serving, use Pillsbury Reduced Fat Refrigerated Crescent Dinner Roll.
