Ingredients You’ll Need

Refrigerated Crescent Roll Sheets. Think of these as the unsung heroes of our muffins. They’re bringing in those flaky vibes, making you wonder if you’re biting into a croissant or a muffin.

Unsalted Butter. Oh man, this is where the magic happens. It’s like the glue for our sugar and cinnamon, and it’s sneaking in that rich, buttery goodness to the party.

Granulated Sugar. This sweet fella? It’s playing besties with our cinnamon. And when it hits the oven? Boom! That signature golden glow and a crust that’s sweet perfection.

Ground Cinnamon. The main event, folks. It’s giving our muffins that churro charm with its warm and spicy notes.

Nutmeg (Optional). A little sprinkle of this, and you’re taking those muffins from amazing to “Whoa, what’s that delightful twist?” It’s all about adding a touch of warmth and a hint of mystery.

Cruffins – No Fail Steps!

Preparation. Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F. While it’s warming up, lightly grease a standard 12-cup muffin tin and set it aside.

Roll Out Dough. On a clean surface, roll out each crescent roll sheet into a 12×16-inch rectangle. If you’re using perforated crescent roll dough, make sure to seal the seams.

Spread Butter. Spread 2 tablespoons of the softened butter evenly over each sheet of dough.

Dry Ingredients. In a mixing bowl, combine the granulated sugar, ground cinnamon, and optional nutmeg. Sprinkle 1/3 of this mixture evenly over the buttered dough sheets, pressing it gently into the dough.

Roll and Cut. Starting from the longer side, roll each dough sheet tightly into a log. Cut each log into four equal sections, giving you 12 pieces in total.

Make Spirals. Take each section and, with the layered side facing out, roll it into a spiral, tucking the end underneath. Place each spiral in the prepared muffin tin.

Bake. Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes, or until the muffins are a beautiful golden brown.

Coat Cruffins. As soon as they’re out of the oven, roll each muffin in the remaining cinnamon-sugar mixture to coat them evenly.

Cool and Serve. Let them cool slightly, then serve and enjoy!
