Quick and Easy Crescent Cinnamon Rolls

Serves 4


For the cinnamon rolls:

  • 2 tablespoons or more softened butter
  • 3 teaspoons granulated sugar.
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1 can refrigerated Pillsbury crescent roll (8 oz can)

For the glaze:

  • ½ cup powdered or icing sugar
  • 3 teaspoons milk or water


To make the rolls:

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Grease or butter the bottom of an 8-inch or any round pan with butter. Keep aside
  • Open the canister of the Pillsbury crescent roll and unroll the dough on to a lightly floured and clean cutting board or counter top.


  • Seal the perforations of the dough by pinching them so that there are no holes or gaps.


  • If preferable, using a floured rolling pin, you can slightly roll this dough.
  • Spread the softened butter evenly over the dough till the edges.


  • Mix the powdered sugar and cinnamon powder in a small bowl, sprinkle this over the butter evenly to coat the entire dough.


  • Now, starting from the shorter side, roll the dough as tightly as possible to make a roll.


  • Cut them into to 1 inch pieces using a sharp knife. If the dough has become soft, pop them in the refrigerator for a few minutes.
  • Place these rolls cut side up in the greased baking pan.


  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 10 to 12 minutes or more till they are golden light brown in color.


For the glaze:

  • As the rolls are baking, in a small bowl, mix the powdered sugar and milk to make a smooth glaze.
  • As soon as the rolls are out of the oven, cool for about a minute.  Then spoon the glaze all over the warm rolls and serve them immediately.


Enjoy these gooey, sweet, cinnamon rolls fresh and warm from the oven!!!!
