Quick and Easy Cinnamon Rolls

If you follow this blog then you know I have a great love for crescent rolls. Well, this is a fun way to whip up some easy cinnamon rolls using crescent dough sheets. If you want mini cinnamon rolls then only use 1 sheet.


  • 2 tubes of Crescent Sheets
  • Flour
  • Cinnamon Sugar
  • 3 Tbsp melted butter (In the photos I have used more because I also use this to make the Sweet Butter Glaze)
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Use about 1 tbsp or more of flour and sprinkle it over your work surface. This will prevent the dough from sticking. 

  3. Open each tube and lay the dough out. allow both doughs to overlap at one end. We are going to make this one big sheet of dough.
  4. Sprinkle about 1tbsp or so of flour over the dough so it won’t stick to rolling pin. Roll out the dough just to increase the surface area slightly. 

  5. Brush the dough with the melted butter.
  6. Liberally coat the dough with cinnamon sugar.DSC_0509
  7. At one end of the dough begin to roll it. Roll it until it is is a complete log.DSC_0510
  8. I usually brush the crease with butter to seal.DSC_0511
  9. Cut into about 2-inch sections and place each in a round greased cake pan or on a baking sheet. 

  10. Brush the tops of the cinnamon rolls with butter and then liberally sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the top of each roll.DSC_0515
  11. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the rolls are golden.DSC_0518
  12. Pull out of the oven and if you want to add a glaze then make Sweet Butter Glaze.
  13. Top each roll with some of the glaze and pop them back in the oven for a couple of minutes or until the glaze begins to run. 



*Sometimes we double the amount of glaze we make for these.
