Quick and Easy Mini Cinnamon Rolls

Easy Mini Cinnamon RoolsThese mini cinnamon rolls are quick and easy to make for breakfast, for a snack or a quick dessert.

You should get 2 tubes of crescent rolls right away. I would make a double batch right away because they will not last.

This recipe is a version I pinned from Michael Wurm, Jr. who pinned it from Iowa Girl Eats.

You can put these in the oven while you are eating dinner and they will be ready for your dessert. The rolls only take about 10 minutes to bake. They’re really great when they’re warm, right out of the oven

Here are the ingredients for the mini cinnamon rolls.

Cinnamon roll ingredients

Preheat oven according to crescent roll package. Layout 4 triangles and pinch seams together on both sides. Press out the dough to 1/4″ thick.

Dough pressed together

Brush with half the softened butter. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon (as much as you would like).

cinnamon roll toppings

Roll into a log and cut into 8 pieces.

Dough cut in 8 piecesRepeat with the other 4 triangles.

Place mini cinnamon rolls onto a mini muffin pan sprayed with a non stick spray.

Cinnamon rolls ready to bakeBake according to crescent roll package. Each brand is different.

Put a ziplock bag into a small cup. Pour icing into a small ziplock bag. This is a great tip for avoiding the mess you make trying to scoop icing or chocolate into a bag for drizzling.

Pouring icing into bag

You don’thaveto put it into a bag, but it will give you more control and make it much easier to drizzle the icing over the mini cinnamon rolls.

Drizzle icing over the mini cinnamon rolls.

  1. Ok this is bad bad bad that I just read this. I absolutely LOVE cinnamon rolls…it’s one of my fav breakfast indulgences. Thanks for linking up to ThePinterestProject! Hope I don’t gain 50 lbs from this :)

    •  @MelissaSwenson I know right? It’s so bad when such a dangerous recipe is so easy! I’m almost thankful when a recipe is more involved, because it means that I won’t make it as often. :-p

  2. Those look too good! :) I’ve made cinnamon rolls using the regular old Pillsbury Biscuits – and you really can’t go wrong – they are just delicious! I love the idea of doing the minis though because minis are a lot easier for the kids to eat!
