This recipe comes from the vintage cookbook I thrifted called, Cook Book. So, it’s not my grandma’s recipe – but it must be from someone’s grandma.

These crescent roll cinnamon rolls sound very interesting! It doesn’t come with a recipe for frosting – but use any general cinnamon roll frosting topping recipe you prefer. You can even purchase a canned frosting for use.
