  • 1 package refrigerated crescent rolls 4 oz

  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1 1/2 tbsp cinnamon sugar


  • Pre-heat oven to 350°F. Set aside a sheet pan and line with cooking parchment paper.
  • Unroll crescent rolls. Take 1 roll and pinch seams together to form one long rectangle.
  • Spread 1 Tbsp Nutella evenly over dough to within 1/4 inch of edges.
  • Roll up dough starting at longest side; pinch to seal.
  • Place seam side down and use sharp knife to slice dough lengthwise to form 2 halves.
  • Pinch the top of the 2 halves together, and then twist halves together with cut sides of dough facing up. Shape into circle; gently pinch ends together.
  • Brush with beaten egg; sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve and enjoy!
