Gather your supplies. Since these use pre-made dough, they're super quick and easy, making them great for a fresh breakfast or  dessert! I had a pleasant first time experience with this dough.

Open the tin of dough and unroll it. I tried the "reduced fat" variety. Don't worry about any holes, you can pinch the dough together to fill them in. I had to do that in a couple of places.

Melt your butter in the microwave and spread on the dough with a pastry brush. In retrospect, I would follow the perforations and separate the dough into triangles now. (I did it after the sugar step)

You should already have your dough separated into triangles. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar. You'll probably have some left over, so don't worry if you don't use it all.

Here's where I cut the triangles. It's not a big deal, but they're easier to maneuver and separate when the sugar is done after cutting.

Cut a one inch line at the broad end of the dough and spread. It helps create the proper croissant shape and a wider pastry. Gently roll the dough from the broad end to the thin one.

Be sure to not roll them too tightly. When baking, they will expand, so be gentle. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Baking according to instructions on tin. Mine said 10-12 minutes or golden brown.
