How to Make Crescent Cinnamon Rolls

If you are looking for a quick, easy alternative for traditional cinnamon rolls, then you will love this recipe. All you need is a can of refrigerated crescent rolls, and you can have delicious, homemade cinnamon rolls in minutes.


1 tube refrigerated crescent rolls


6 tbsp. butter or margarine
1/4 c. white or brown sugar
1 tbsp. cinnamon


2 tbsp. butter, melted
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Remove crescent rolls from container, unroll, and separate them. Place them on an ungreased cookie sheet (make sure cookie sheet has "sides" or the butter will run off the edges of the cookie sheet).

In a small bowl, mix together butter, sugar, and cinnamon for the filling. You can use either white sugar or brown sugar. Spread the butter mixture evenly onto the crescent triangles on the cookie sheet.

Roll up the triangles, wider end to smaller end. Press all seams together as much as possible so that the filling doesn't leak out during baking. Place the tip side down on the cookie sheet.

Bake for about 10 minutes or until golden brown.

For the glaze, in a small bowl, mix together butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Add a little milk if necessary to reach desired consistency. Drizzle the glaze on the crescent rolls after they come out of the oven.

Serve right away. Trust me, they won't last long. You can easily double this recipe. Enjoy!
