“Cheat” Cinnamon Rolls

I was trying to come up with something different I can make the kids for breakfast. I rummaged through my fridge, and saw I had a tube of crescent roll dough in there. I haven’t made these in awhile, but it’s super easy, quick, and yummy.

You need a tube of crescent roll dough. I always buy Publix, Walmart, or Kroger brand. I really don’t see any difference between Pillsbury, versus store brand, with these.

Melt about 2 Tbs butter. I like to make them real buttery, so you may use less, but that’s what I use. Unroll your crescent dough, and separate into the individual rolls. Brush some of the butter on the insides of each of your crescents. Sprinkle some cinnamon and sugar on them. Then, roll them corner to corner, as you would if you were making plain ones. Brush some more butter on the tops of each crescent roll. Sprinkle some more cinnamon and sugar on top. Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes.

For icing, I mix a cup of powdered sugar, 1/4 tsp of vanilla, and a little milk. Start with about 1 tsp of milk, stir, and add additional teaspoonfuls until you get the consistency you like. When the rolls are done baking, drizzle the icing on top.

This is just another one of my random recipes. As usual, not particularly low fat, but delicious! 😆
