Super Easy Cinnamon Rolls

Nothing beats cinnamon rolls fresh out of the oven in the morning! This was inspired after eating Nurse Di's Tiny Cinnamon Rolls. I didn't have Crescent rolls but was craving cinnamon rolls and wanted to use ingredients I had on hand. These turned out to be light and buttery and the cinnamon-sugar filling made these rolls really YUMMY.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Unroll bread dough.
  3. Spead softened butter over bread dough.
  4. Mix the sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl. Sprinkle the cinnamon/sugar mixture over the buttered bread dough.
  5. Starting at the small end of the bread dough, roll tightly and seal the seam.
  6. Cut into 8 equal pieces by cutting the roll in half, then each half in half, then each quater in half.
  7. Place all 8 pieces cut side down so that the sides are touching and there is one in the middle in a greased 9" pie pan.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until cinnamon rolls are nicely browned.
  9. Stir together the powdered sugar, softened butter, milk and vanilla and spread over warm cinnamon rolls.

These are the BEST! And boy did the house smell good. I took some over to the neighbors and they also raved about them and asked for the recipe. Sit back with a cup of tea or coffee and enjoy this wonderful treat. Thanks for sharing, SoozieQ.

I loved these cinnamon rolls! They were SO easy to put together. I used white sugar because I didn't have brown, but I'll be using brown the next time. Thanks for posting this easy and delicious recipe!
