christmas tradition: mini cinnamon rolls

Every Christmas morning since I can remember, my Mom has served semi-homemade cinnamon rolls for breakfast! They became just as much a part of our Christmas morning tradition as opening gifts from Santa! The best part....they are super easy! Here is the recipe below. What are your Christmas morning traditions?

2 cans crescent rolls (8 oz.)
6 tbsp. butter or margarine, softened
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tbsp. sugar
2/3 cup powdered sugar
1 tbsp. milk or half and half
1/4 tsp. almond or vanilla extract

1. Unroll crescent rolls, and separate each dough portion along center perforation to form 4 rectangles; press diagonal perforations to seal.

2. Stir together butter, cinnamon, and sugar; spread evenly over 1 side of each rectangle. Roll up jellyroll fashion, starting with long end. Gently cut each log slices. Place rolls, ¼ inch apart, on non-greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375° for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden. Cool 5 to 10 minutes. Stir together powdered sugar and remaining ingredients. Drizzle over warm rolls.
