NATIONAL CINNAMON CRESCENT  DAY

Monday, April 10, 2017

National Cinnamon Crescent Day is observed annually on April 10th.  Crescent roll dough filled with sugar, cinnamon and butter then rolled, shaped and baked to a golden brown deliciousness.

While you enjoy eating your crescent roll, remember that cinnamon is a good source of manganese, fiber, iron and calcium.
