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


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Unroll and separate rolls and place on an ungreased baking sheet.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together 4 tablespoons butter, sugar, and cinnamon.
  4. Spread mixture over rolls and roll up tightly. Arrange so tip side of roll is facing down on baking sheet.
  5. Bake until lightly golden, 10-12 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, stir together melted butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Pipe or drizzle over rolls and enjoy!
