Love this recipe! I like to prepare through step 3, then, wrap each roll in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight, slice and bake in the morning. Brew a pot of coffee and along with the scent of hot cinnamon rolls baking the family won't need their alarm clocks :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Unroll crescent rolls, and separate each dough portion along center perforation to form 4 rectangles; press diagonal perforations to seal.
  2. Stir together butter and next 4 ingredients; spread evenly over 1 side of each rectangle.
  3. Roll up jellyroll fashion, starting at long end.
  4. Gently cut each log into 6 (1-inch-thick) slices, using a serrated knife.
  5. Place rolls, 1/4 inch apart, into 2 (8-inch) greased cakepans.
  6. Bake at 375° for 15 to 18 minutes or until golden.
  7. Cool 5 to 10 minutes.
  8. Stir together powdered sugar and remaining ingredients.

  10. Note: To make slicing easier, place unbaked rolls on baking sheet, and freeze for 10 minutes.
