Easy Cinnamon Rolls

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by wife2abadge

My kids love these. I make them with lowfat crescent rolls and light butter. They take less time than 15 minutes in my oven, but it tends to run hot.

I made this yesterday for my kids when they came home for lunch. They loved it and that night they asked me to make more. The only change I made was to use milk in place of the orange juice in the icing. This is easy and tastes great. Thanks for the recipe.
