Hey everyone! This is Nancy again from The Bitter Side of Sweet and I am so glad to be back here with you this month! This month has gone by super fast and soon we will be seeing all kinds of red, pink and heart shaped treats for us to indulge in but today I wanted to share with you these Cinnamon Croissants. I saw this Orange Monkey Bread that you guys seemed to love, so I hope you don’t mind getting another breakfast type recipe this week?

Food on a plate, with Cinnamon and Croissant

I have told my reader LOTS of times that I am not a big breakfast eater. But when you add sugar to it, I have no problems! What I like about these pastries is that they don’t have to be served just for breakfast. These croissants are a perfect afternoon snack to go with your tea or even a lovely way to finish out a nice dinner.

Now you might be thinking that they may be difficult to make but rest assure they are not! I made them twice, just to be sure! The first time, I cut them too short so my croissants kept popping open. The next time I rolled my dough out into more of a rectangle shape and cut them to be longer. So that way when I rolled them I would have lots of layers and I could make it tighter, which in fact kept them from popping open!
