Ridiculously Easy Cinnamon Rolls

Makes 8 servings
Adapted from The Hungry Housewife

1 tube (8 count) refrigerated crescent roll dough
6 tablespoons butter, room temperature
1/4 cup sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
Sliced almonds, optional

Preheat oven to 375.  Line a baking sheet with parchment or a silicone mat.  Unroll and separate the crescent rolls and place on baking sheet.  Set aside.

Next, mix softened butter, sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl and spread evenly over one side of the unrolled crescent rolls.  Roll the crescent rolls up and bake for 10 minutes.

While the rolls are baking, make the glaze by combining the melted butter, powdered sugar and vanilla & almond extracts in a bowl until blended.  Once the rolls are done baking, drizzle glaze evenly over the top.  Sprinkle with sliced almonds if desired.  Serve warm.
