My life seems to be a bit of a farce lately. Coming home from an early morning shopping trip, I heard what sounded like a glass hitting against some other object. As I don’t have any glass objects in my car, I thought it quite strange but continued for home. When my husband and I opened the trunk of my car, we found that one of the cans of crescent rolls had burst open, with at least half of the dough all over the trunk. Not quite what I expected for what should have been an easy shopping trip.
Stubborn and frugal, I was determined to make something out of that remaining dough. Quickly searching for an appropriate recipe, I found 5 Minute Pumpkin Cinnamon Crescent Rolls. Recently I had seen recipes similar to this one in my Facebook stream, but I couldn’t find them in the rush of taking care of this baking emergency. And when you’ve got a baking emergency, you must get things taken care of.
I found that the remaining dough wasn’t in very good shape, and so I floured a board and worked it into shape. Halving the recipe, I was able to use the dough and make some relatively yummy rolls for a late breakfast. Perhaps my life may be a comedy of errors lately, but the ending was positive. And that’s what matters, right?
