Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 ounces crescent roll dough, 8 roll tube
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 12 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 12 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice


  1. Unroll dough in one long rectangle and press to seal perforations.
  2. Combine cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle over dough.
  3. Roll up jelly roll style <like a log> starting from the short end and pinch seam to seal.
  4. Using a serrated knife slice into 4 equal slices. (I use unwaxed dental floss threading underneath the 'log' and then crossing the ends above the 'log'(floss makes an O around the dough, floss ends form a V) Pull ends to draw floss through to cut dough. Makes a cleaner cut.).
  5. Place rolls pinched side down in ungreased muffin tin.
  6. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes or until brown. Cool for 5 minutes then transfer to wire rack.
  7. Mix powdered sugar and orange juice to make a thin glaze. Drizzle over the warm rolls and serve.
