Pull apart bread in 20 minutes flat!!

Yes you read that right!

 I have been drooling over pull apart bread for a good 6 months.

The only problem is that I stink at making bread from scratch.

My rolls resemble small stones not fluffy clouds.


I was so happy I almost cried!  That happens with me and food…….

This was a way I could make the bread of my dreams and it would still turn out delicious!

  And guess what???  IT DID!

   Make it and you will feel like a rockstar.

    I love cinnamon bread so I tried this last night. Well, all the sugar wouldn't melt so I left it in the over for nearly 30 minutes and had to take it out. I can bake and should have known better that 1 cup + 1/2 cup sugar was too much. Anyways, I agree with the amount of cinnamon, but you can probably used two tablespoons of brown sugar and butter and toss it in the oven. I would also suggest that the top of the crescent rolls not have too much sugar as it is hard to melt. I do love the idea of using crescent rolls. That is genius, but all that sugar will put someone in a diabetic coma.
