One of my favorite breakfast foods is cinnamon raisin toast. In fact, I like it so much that I could eat the whole loaf! But I think my beloved cinnamon raisin toast has found a top competitor–Cinnamon Raisin Crescents.

Really, what could be better than a buttery, flaky crescent filled with cinnamon butter and raisins and topped with a simple glaze? Easy and delicious, it is my idea of the best breakfast!

Here’s how to make them:

Start by mixing together the butter and cinnamon. Spread the cinnamon butter onto the crescent triangles.

Add on a few raisins and roll up the crescents, starting on the wide side. Bake until they are golden. Cool completely.

Mix together powdered sugar and milk; drizzle the glaze over the crescents.
