Cinnamon Roll Crescents Recipe: Ooey-Gooey Morning Treat


 You can serve them as a breakfast or dessert. You can even make them for both. They take only 15 minutes.

As far as I can recall, my mom used to make crescent rolls for Christmas dinner. For as long as I can remember, those simple buttery, doughy rolls were something I loved about Thanksgiving and Christmas. She never made them like this. The genius trick is to take the same crescent roll dough recipe and make a cinnamon roll. These are a great choice for breakfast or dessert, but they’re so easy to make you can have them both.

Serves 4

5m prep time

10m cook time



1 tube crescent rolls


4 tablespoons butter, softened

1/4 cup granulated sugar

2 teaspoons cinnamon


2 tablespoons butter, melted

1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons powdered sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 375°F.

Unroll and separate rolls and place on an ungreased baking sheet.

In a small bowl, mix together 4 tablespoons butter, sugar, and cinnamon.

Spread mixture over rolls and roll up tightly. Arrange so tip side of roll is facing down on baking sheet.

Bake until lightly golden, 10-12 minutes.

Meanwhile, stir together melted butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Pipe or drizzle over rolls and enjoy!
