Gingered Cinnamon Crescent Rolls
1 tsp TSTE® Ground Cinnamon
1 TBS TSTE® Ginger Sugar
¼ cup light brown sugar
¼ cup chopped pecans
2 cups biscuit baking mix
½ cup cold water
3 TBS softened butter
For the Glaze:
½ cup confectioners’ sugar
1 TBS softened butter
¼ tsp TSTE® Madagascar Vanilla Extract
1 TBS water
Preheat oven to 450° F. In a small bowl combine brown sugar, pecans & TSTE® Ground Cinnamon; set aside. In large bowl, combine biscuit mix, TSTE® Ginger Sugar & water until soft dough forms; beat vigorously for 30 secs.
Roll into a ball with hands dusted in baking mix so the dough will not stick. Knead 1 min. Pat or roll dough into 10 -12″ circle. Spread dough with butter & sprinkle brown sugar mixture over top before cutting into eight triangle shaped wedges (like a pizza). Roll up each slice, beginning at wide edges, to point. Place on ungreased cookie sheet, shape into a semi-circle.
Bake for 10 mins. or until golden brown, then drizzle with glaze. Served best slightly warm.
Glaze: In a small bowl mix confectioners’ sugar, butter, TSTE® Madagascar Vanilla Extract & water with a fork. Add more water as needed until blended & smooth.
