Cinnamon Raisin Pastry Rounds

by megan on May 16, 2009

I have always loved anything with cinnamon and raisins! The two flavors pair so well together. These treats will definitely satisfy a cinnamon raisin craving, and they fill the house with an amazing cinnamon aroma while they are baking. These would be perfect in the morning with a cup of coffee!

Cinnamon Raisin Pastry Rounds
1 can (8 oz) refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1/3 cup raisins
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

Heat oven to 375°F.
Prepare cookie sheet with cooking spray.
Unroll dough and separate into 2 rectangles.
Press perforations to seal.
Sprinkle raisins evenly over dough, pressing into dough.
Brush rectangles with half of the butter.
In small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon.
Sprinkle half of sugar mixture evenly over dough.
Starting with one short side of each rectangle, roll up and seal edge.
Cut each roll into 3 slices.
Place each slice, cut side down, between 2 sheets of plastic wrap or waxed paper.
Press each into 5-inch round. Remove plastic wrap and place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet.
Brush rounds with remaining butter and sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture.
Bake 14 to 16 minutes or until golden brown.

this sounds so easy with the pillsbury biscuits! I agree- cinnamon and raisin is awesome together- especially with a little butter too.

A great little treat to whip up quickly (but that’s also the danger)! 8-)

These pastry rounds look really scrumptious! I’ve never had such a speciality…

Those look great Megan!

I assume you meant 1/4 CUP of butter?

That would be a great thing to make on the weekend!!

Mmm, these pastry rounds look totally fabulous!! I love cinnamon raisin anything, but pairing those flavors with pastry was especially brilliant! They look delish. Sorry that I’ve been a bad commenter for the past couple of weeks; I just finished law school exams and am just now getting to my google reader!
