Really Easy Cinnamon Rolls

I made these during my in-laws visit recently.  Nothing will ever replace my dad’s cinnamon rolls.  Those are by far the best things I’ve ever had.  However, for a quick fix, or for an easy breakfast treat, these are pretty tasty.

Makes 16 mini cinnamon rolls

Ingredients:
1-8oz tube crescent roll dough
2 Tablespoons butter
cinnamon
brown sugar

For the icing:
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup of milk
3/4 cup powdered sugar

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven according to crescent roll dough package directions. Layout half the dough (4 triangles) and pinch all the seams together. Flip over and pinch the seams on the back side together too.
  2. Using a rolling pin, smooth the seams and roll the dough into a square about 1/4″ thick. Brush with half the butter, and sprinkle with as much cinnamon and brown sugar as you want. Roll into a log and cut into 8 pieces.
  3. Place mini cinnamon rolls into a non-stick sprayed mini muffin tin. Repeat steps 1 and 2 with the other half of the crescent roll dough. Bake according to package directions.
  4. Meanwhile whisk together vanilla and milk in a bowl. Add in powdered sugar until desired consistency is reached. Drizzle over warm cinnamon rolls.
