Brown Sugar Twists

Here's a cheap recipe for a Saturday morning breakfast treat! All you need is one can of the crescent roll dough, some butter, some brown sugar, a little bit of powdered sugar, and milk.

Roll out the dough to erase the seams in the crescent rolls so you have one big piece of dough. Melt some butter, enough to put a thin layer on the dough. Sprinkle brown sugar onto the dough, and rub it in a little bit to smooth it out over the dough. Cut into 1" wide strips so that you have several strips of dough that are about 1" x 6". Take each strip and twist it to make a cute little twisty thingy (hard to explain!). Bake in the oven according to the dough directions. While it's baking, mix a little bit of powdered sugar with a little bit of milk to make the icing. You want it thick enough to hold its shape, but thin enough to drizzle. Once the twists come out of the oven, drizzle the glaze over the top. And enjoy!!

You can usually get a can of crescent rolls (with a coupon) for around a dollar, and the butter, sugar, and milk are all things that you most likely have in the pantry. So here's a breakfast treat for a dollar or two! One can of rolls will make about six or eight strips, depending on how wide you cut your strips.
Here's a pic from the Money Saving Mom website, this is what they look like before baked and glazed:
