Easy Cinnamon Rolls

Lisa Foote


I make these on cold mornings and weekends to start our day off with a sweet bite! You can use regular crescent rolls and press the edges together (make sure they are sealed) or the seamless crescent dough. I add pecans, but any nut will work and they are great without nuts too! I have included an orange drizzle that makes them special!

How to Make Easy Cinnamon Rolls


  • 1Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 9 inch pie plate or cake pan.
  • 2Unroll dough from can. If using the regular crescent rolls, press seams together, making sure they are sealed. Brush dough with butter, getting all the way to the edges.
  • 3Sprinkle white sugar over butter, followed by brown sugar and cinnamon. Add chopped nuts if desired. Spread all the way to the edges.
  • 4Starting on the long side of the dough, carefully roll the dough up into a log. Cut the dough into 8 pieces with a serrated knife. Carefully lift rolls to pan and arrange in a circle. Bake at 375 degrees F for 15 minutes, oven temps may vary so bake until golden brown.
  • 5Let rolls cool about 3-5 minutes and move them to a plate. using a fork, drizzle the topping over the rolls. Serve warm!
  • 6DRIZZLE: In a small bowl, melt the 1 T butter, add 1 T orange juice and stir well. Add powdered sugar until the consistency you like is reached. I like ours a little thicker, so I use closer to 1/2 cup of the powdered sugar. If it gets to thick, just add a few more drops of liquid. Milk will work in the place of the juice if you want a more traditional drizzle!
