“This is a recipe we got from an American Girl book. It is best served as a breakfast pastry or dessert. The original recipe calls for the crescents to be filled with jam, but we liked them better with a combination of butter, cinnamon and brown sugar.”

  4. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for three hours.
  5. Place chilled dough on a lightly floured countertop.
  6. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough thin (about 1/8").
  7. With a table knife, cut the dough into 3" squares.
  8. Spread one corner of each square with the filling mixture.
  9. Starting in that corner, roll up each square, then curve in the ends to form a crescent.
