Found a recipe for some "Easy Cinnamon Rolls" made from ready made Crescent Rolls .... I made them and They. Were. AMAZING!!!

Easy Cinnamon Rolls

1 (12 ounce) package crescent rolls
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup chopped pecans (optional)

1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare a sheet pan by lining with parchment paper. Unroll the crescent roll dough and separate into two rectangles. Brush the melted butter evenly over the two rectangles of dough. In a small bowl, mix the brown sugar and cinnamon together; sprinkle over the butter. Sprinkle chopped pecans over the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Roll each rectangle of dough up evenly, then cut into 1-inch slices. Place the slices cut side up on the prepared pan. Bake for 12 - 15 minutes or until rolls are golden brown. Cool, then drizzle with icing.

To make the icing: In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon. Stir until smooth. Drizzle over cinnamon rolls.

  1. The recipe calls for 1 (12oz) package of Crescent Rolls, but I prefer Cinnamon rolls extra "cinnamony and gooey*, so I used 1 (8oz) Crescent Roll package and followed the full recipe for the butter, cinnamon and sugar filling and icing.
  2. Instead of baking on a cookie sheet, I used a greased muffin pan to help keep their shape as they baked. Be sure to keep an eye on them.. with the extra sugar filling you don't want them to burn.
  3. After they cool, you can drizzle the icing with a spoon or for better control, mix the icing and put it in a plastic squeeze bottle with a fine tip.
