Cresent Cinnamon Rolls

Have you ever had a craving for cinnamon rolls?  Ya know that craving that you just can't get rid of?  Cinnamon and sugar and icing - three of my favorite things all in one.  I crave chocolate like most of the women in the universe, but cinnamon and sugar are right up there with chocolate for me. 

So, last week Hubby and I were sitting on the couch watching TV and I just couldn't contain my craving any longer.  After battling it for days, I finally gave in.  I'd just make some canned cinnamon rolls really quick and eat a few and saved the rest for the kids for breakfast.  But, alas, we didn't have any canned cinnamon rolls.  But, I had cresent rolls.  Oh yeah, baby! 

I rolled out the canned dough and spread a little softened butter and sprinkled a generous amount of cinnamon and sugar.  I rolled up the cresents and sprinkled a little more cinnamon and sugar.  Then I baked them according to the directions (I think it was 375 degrees for 12 minutes or so).

Top with powdered sugar, milk and vanilla mixed together for the icing.  Sometimes I add a little softened cream cheese to the mixture.  SO YUMMY! 

They are so fabulous and buttery and delicious....so I ate a  lot of them, four to be exact.  I shared with Hubby.  I didn't save any for the kids  - they were asleep - ya snooze, ya lose, right?  I am such a bad mom.  I guess that's why I gained 3 pounds last week.  Oh well.  More of me to love.  Maybe that's why my Hubby calls my backside cinnamon buns!  I know, TMI!

I'm linking up to Tasty Tuesday @ Balancing Beauty and Bedlam and Tempt My Tummy Tuesday @ Blessed With Grace. 


  1. Oooh, that sounds yummy! And when you mentioned cream cheese I wondered if you could add some of that with sugar to the inside as well???

  2. This looks so much easier than regular cinnamon rolls, and I bet just as good!

  3. great idea when you're in a pinch!

  4. You could have also sprinkled some chocolate chips inside those babies, too, right??? OH those look yummy!!! I've not had bread in a while, so they really look delicious!

  5. Ooooh, my gawrsh!! YUUUUUUUM!!!

    Hope you might join us for Dishing It! this week?? :)

  6. He calls them cinnamon buns??? That is just adorable and makes me giggle.

    I love cinnamon and sugar too. Snickerdoodles are my specialty, in fact.

    I WANT to make this, but I will resist.
    I think...

  7. YES!! I do have cravings for cinnamon rolls, and chocolate chip cookies fresh from the oven, warm, gooey...
    This is a great idea--I will have to remember this!
    YUM...I think I seriously need to give in to the temptation.
    More of me to love, right?
