Out of This World Skinny Cinnamon Rolls

READY IN: 27mins




  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees; have a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Keep the tube of crescent rolls in fridge until ready to use and you have all your ingredients ready to go.
  • In a small bowl combine the sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.
  • Melt the butter in microwave safe bowl and set aside.
  • Now, take the tube out of fridge and roll out on a cutting board. You want to flatten the dough out with your hands to make a rectangle. You don't need to use a rolling pin but you can use one if you want to make the same thickness throughout.
  • Spread the butter with a pastry brush over the entire dough. Save a little butter for when you have rolled up this up after the filling is inches.
  • Sprinkle the sugar/cinnamon mixture over the butter (a nice coating). Save a little for when it's rolled up.
  • Starting with the shorter end, roll the dough up into a log.
  • Brush the remaining butter over the outside of the log and sprinkle the remaining sugar mixture over the butter.
  • With a sharp knife cut the roll into 8 slices. To do this, start by cutting the roll in half then half again until you have 8 slices.
  • Place the slices on the baking sheet. You will probably still have extra cinnamon sugar mixture so sprinkle that over the cut slices.
  • Bake for about 10-12 minutes. Turn the pan around after 5 minutes and check after 10 minutes. They should look puffed, light brown and the bottoms will look light to medium brown as well. Remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack.
  • To make glaze: In a small bowl blend the powdered sugar with the milk and mix up until you have a glaze consistency. If you have a mini whisk this makes for easier mixing. You can use a spoon or small fork as well. When the rolls are slightly cooled, drizzle the glaze over each roll.
  • ENJOY these yummy treats!
