Quick Cinnamon Rolls
While we were growing up, every once in a while our mom would buy a package of cinnamon rolls for my sisters and me to bake on Sunday morning before church. There is just something about popping open one of those rolls. We loved it!
This recipe reminds us of those days but with a twist. One Sunday morning, Barbara was looking for a quick recipe for breakfast and she was able to throw these together in a flash. And, they are only five ingredients! This recipe is from Taste of Home: Most Requested Recipes cookbook.
These crescent cinnamon rolls hit the spot and her family loved them too. But, who doesn’t love crescent rolls? Many of us tend to keep a roll of these in the fridge as a staple. They even make rolls of crescent roll dough WITHOUT the individual scored rolls, making this recipe even easier if you can find those in your local grocery store.
How to Make Crescent Cinnamon Rolls

Roll up the dough jelly-roll style. Cut into 8 cinnamon rolls. Place the rolls in a greased 9-inch round cake pan. Bake until golden brown. While they are baking, mix together the powdered sugar glaze. Drizzle over warm rolls once out of the oven.
