When I was a kid, my mom would often buy a tube of refrigerated crescent dough, a packet of marshmallows, and make up a batch of cinnamon sugar. She’d invite us to sit around the kitchen table, wrapping the crescents around the marshmallows before dipping them in butter and rolling them into cinnamon-sugar. We’d bake them until soft and golden and called them “Missing Marshmallows,” I found them so delicious it was magical.
