Cinnamon Roll Crescent Rolls

Here’s the full recipe for Cinnamon Roll Crescent Rolls:


1 can crescent rolls
3/4 cup brown sugar
4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tbsp heavy cream
1/2 tsp vanilla extract


Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it to prevent sticking.
Prepare Cinnamon Sugar Mixture: In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon until well combined.
Unroll Crescent Dough: Open the can of crescent rolls and carefully unroll the dough onto a clean surface. Separate the dough into triangles along the perforated lines.
Spread Cinnamon Sugar: Sprinkle a generous amount of the cinnamon sugar mixture evenly over the surface of each crescent roll triangle.
Roll Up Crescent Rolls: Starting at the wide end of each triangle, roll up the dough toward the pointed end, forming crescent shapes. Roll them up at an angle to create the spiral effect of cinnamon rolls.
Bake: Place the rolled-up crescent rolls onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for about 9 minutes, or until they are golden brown and cooked through.
Make Glaze: While the crescent rolls are baking, prepare the glaze. In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, heavy cream, and vanilla extract until smooth. Adjust the consistency by adding more heavy cream if you prefer a runnier glaze.
Glaze the Rolls: Once the crescent rolls are done baking, remove them from the oven and let them cool slightly. Drizzle or spread the glaze over the warm rolls using a spoon or a pastry brush.
Serve: Serve the cinnamon roll crescent rolls warm as a delicious breakfast treat or snack.
