Easy Cinnamon Rolls


These cinnamon rolls are so easy to make, no yeast, no kneading, no rising, no hoping they will turn out! I love it, I swear me and dough are not friends, as many times as I’ve tried, I just can’t get the hang of it.  Someday, maybe, but I’ve got my doubts! These rolls are simple enough, you can do them for a special breakfast and the secret to them, you use crescent rolls!


I always put down a piece of wax paper to make clean up easier, just roll out your dough and press the edges together.


Top with melted butter

Easy Cinnamon Rolls

1 tube of crescent rolls

2 Tbsp melted butter


brown sugar

2 ozs. cream cheese

1/2 Tbsp. soften butter

1 Tbsp. milk

2 to 3 Tbsp. powder sugar

1/2 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven according to the crescent rolls directions.  Unroll the dough and pinch edges of four of the crescent rolls together and do the same with the remaining four rolls, then pinch the edges together to form one big long piece of dough.  Sprinkle with approx. 2 TBSP of brown sugar and top with desired cinnamon.  Starting with one of the long sides, roll it into a log.  Cut it in half and then cut the half in half and cut each in half again to get 16 pieces.  In a greased mini muffin pan, place one roll in each of the cups.  Bake for 10 to 15 minutes until slightly brown. While they bake, beat the cream cheese, milk and soften butter together.  Gradually add powder sugar, after the sugar is added then add the vanilla.  Drizzle over warm rolls and serve.



I’m also very happy, I was chosen to be a Chick-fil-a Mom!
