Semi-Homemade Cinnamon Rolls

by elyn_ryn

This is a recipe for semi-homemade cinnamon rolls that are made with crescent rolls. I used Hawaiian crescent rolls but you can use the regular crescent rolls as well.

These cinnamon rolls are very soft and have a filling made with dark brown sugar and cinnamon.

Brush the crescent bread with softened butter after unrolling and pulling them apart.

Sprinkle the sugar mixture on top of the butter. Use a large spoon to press the sugar into the butter.

After you roll up the rolls, sprinkle on any excess sugar mixture that fell off the rolls when you rolled them. Then pour the half and half and vanilla mixture around the rolls, being careful not to pour the mixture on top of the rolls.

These rolls bake quickly but you will have enough time to mix up the frosting while they bake.

The serving size is one roll for this dessert because these rolls are very decadent and filling. To make them less filling, you can omit the frosting.

Instructions
Cinnamon Rolls
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a small bowl, mix the sugar and cinnamon together.
  2. Unroll the crescent rolls and spread the butter evenly on each roll. Then sprinkle on the sugar and cinnamon mixture on each roll.
  3. Roll up the crescent rolls, starting with the flat end rather than the pointed end.
  4. Place the rolled-up crescent rolls into a 9 x 11-inch baking dish. Spread them out so they are not touching. Mix the cream and vanilla together and pour it around the cinnamon rolls. Do not pour it directly onto the rolls.
  5. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until golden brown.
Frosting
  1. In a small bowl, add the melted butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, cream, and salt. Stir until well mixed.
  2. Spread frosting over the cooked cinnamon rolls.
