Before we get into how ridiculously EASY and delicious these cinnamon roll crescents are, we need to discuss the weather we’ve been having here lately in New Jersey. I’m so not complaining though because we are LOVING it! When it’s nice out, I really try to take advantage of it.

During the nice weather, it’s always good to have a little trick up your sleeve for yummy treat ideas that take only minutes to prepare so you’re in and out of the kitchen in no time! If you know me, you know how much I adore cinnamon rolls and now that I came up with this method, I don’t need to spend hours in the kitchen rising dough! And neither do you.

The famously versatile and convenient refrigerated crescent roll dough has done it again folks! This dough can be used all kinds of ways and even substituted for other types of dough. Personally, I get a little bit intimidated when it comes to making dough from scratch because you have to use yeast and then you have to knead and let the dough rest, etcetera… so this little tube of dough saves me a lot of time. Plus, the crescent rolls were on sale (again) so you know I had to get them. I can’t resist a sale.

In this post I’m going to show you a really easy and delicious way to use Pillsbury crescent rolls. And if you’ve never tried crescent rolls with cinnamon before you are in for a treat!

You get the iconic gooey center, a fluffy dough and the glaze on top just seals the deal for these babies! To prepare them, you’ll separate all of the dough triangles and a brown sugar/cinnamon mixture is packed on top. They’re rolled up and baked to perfection! When they’re done, they’re drizzled with the glaze and you’ve got yourself a make-shift cinnamon roll that took no time at all to make. They’re amazing.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 8 oz can Pillsbury® Crescents®
  • 3 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 2-3 tbs heavy cream or milk
  • 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Unroll crescent dough on a large, ungreased baking sheet and separate triangles.
  • In a small bow, combine brown sugar and cinnamon. Spread mixture on top of each triangle of dough. Roll up the triangles on an angle and position them on the baking sheet 1" apart. Bake for 9-12 minutes or until the tops are lightly golden brown.
  • In a small bowl, mix confectioner's sugar and heavy cream together until combined. I like a thick glaze but you can add as much or as little cream as you'd like to get your desired consistency.
