Simple & Delicious Crescent Cinnamon Rolls

Weekend mornings are my favorite. I love being able to wake up, spend time with my hubby and kids, and enjoy a cup of coffee with a sweet treat.

Cinnamon rolls are my all-time favorite breakfast treat, and while I prefer homemade, I dislike how time-consuming they are.

I’d rather spend more time with my family and make semi-homemade ones. They may not be as good, but they sure come close!

Cinnamon Crescent Rolls

This past weekend I was realllly craving a gooey cinnamon roll, but we didn’t have any on hand. 

I remembered that we had a two-pack of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls in the fridge. They are a great addition to just about any meal, and that got me thinking that they would be perfect for making cinnamon rolls.

After a little trial and error, I came up with a recipe that I think you’re going to love.

Cinnamon Crescent Rolls

To make them, all you need is one can of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, butter, sugar, cinnamon, powdered sugar, and milk/cream.

In about 20 minutes, you’ll have a delicious treat that you can serve for breakfast, brunch, or even dessert.

They are perfect for parties, get-togethers, or lazy mornings spent with family. Enjoy!

Where to Find Pillsbury Crescent Rolls

You can find the Pillsbury Original Crescent Rolls Twin Pack at Walmart in the refrigerated section near the butter and juice.

I love picking up a box when I do my grocery shopping to have on hand for dinners throughout the week.

The nice thing is with two cans, you can set one aside for dinner and one for these yummy Cinnamon Crescent Rolls!

These Cinnamon Crescent Rolls are everything you would expect from a buttery, flaky crescent roll, but with a sweet twist. Filled with cinnamon sugar butter and topped with a sweet vanilla glaze, these makeshift cinnamon rolls are delicious and simple to prepare.

Ingredients

For Rolls

  • 1 can Pillsbury Original Crescents (8 oz)
  • 4 tbsp. butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

For Glaze

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp. milk or cream
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a small bowl, combine butter, sugar and cinnamon. Stir well to combine and set aside.
  3. Unwrap crescent rolls and separate into 8 triangles. Place on an ungreased rimmed baking sheet.
  4. Spread cinnamon sugar butter evenly over each triangle. Roll up starting with the wider end (like you normally do with crescent rolls) and place tip-side down at least one inch apart.
  5. Bake 15-18 minutes or until rolls are golden brown.
  6. While rolls are baking, prepare glaze by combining powdered sugar, milk/cream, and vanilla in a bowl and mixing until smooth.
  7. Remove rolls from oven and allow to cool for 2-3 mins before drizzling glaze over the top of each.
  8. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

If you are short on time, you can bake the rolls at 375°F for 9-10 minutes.
