  • 1 8 oz can crescent rolls
  • Filling
  • 4 tablespoons butter softened
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • teaspoons cinnamon
  • Topping 2 options
  • Buttery Glaze
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 2 1/4 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • or
  • Traditional Cinnamon Roll Glaze
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk or an extra tablespoon if you like it thinner


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Unroll crescent rolls on a large baking sheet and separate the triangles.
  2. In a bowl combine the butter, sugar and cinnamon. Spread mixture on top of each individual triangle. Roll up the triangles tightly and place on your baking pan with the tips down. Bake for approximately 12 minutes or until golden brown.
  3. While the rolls are baking, mix together the ingredients for the glaze. We chose to go with a buttery glaze but if you want to go the traditional cinnamon roll route, go with the traditional glaze.
