I started with 3 tubes of crescent rolls. Cut each of the rolled up cinnamon rolls in 3 pieces. I then put them in a 13x9 baking pan. They were probably bigger than the original ones. But! That didn't make them last any longer!! These can vanish right before your eyes! They were absolutely yummy!! Such an easy way to get such a great treat! Thanks Nurse Di, these will be a regular here.
There is a serious problem with this recipe. They are tiny and disappear into thin air immediately. I made them tonight and my whole family wants them bigger and lots more of them. Guess I'll be doubling your recipe and not cutting them into so many pieces. They are wonderful, easy and quick to make. Thanks for a great recipe.
These were wonderful. So easy to make. I had them in the oven in no time. I had just finished putting the icing on when my daughter and her friend walked in. They lasted about 5 minutes. Did'nt even get a chance to cool off!! Thanks for a quick and easy recipe, NurseDi (and also a very inexpensive one)

These were super super easy. Last time I made cinnamon rolls, the out come was okay and the dough was a big pain so I thought I'd never make them again, but using premade rolls made it so much easier. I used Pillsburry dinner rolls which are already shaped like cinnamon rolls and used 1 1/2 T of brown sugar (instead of white sugar) and 1/2 T of cinnamon for the filling because I didn't think there would be enough if I just used the tsp amount, and it was just enough. But the icing was perfect mostly because I'm not a huge fan of a lot of icing so it was the perfect amount. And it only took about 20 minutes to make including baking time!
This gets 5 stars just for the simplicity and taste!!! So easy to make, as 15 yo DS just loves cinnamon rolls. I did spread a little of butter on the rolls first, and then I used brown sugar instead of white sugar. I also doubled the amount of sugar and cinnamon. My DS loves the Cinnabon rolls/frosting so I found a copycat for the frosting, but didn't to go through the work of kneading/rising of the dough. He ate almost the full 8 oz. Thanks for posting such a quick and wonderful recipe!!!!
