Morning Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

Convenient crescent roll dough hurries along these yummy glazed rolls. I found the recipe in a cookbook. It's great with a cup of hot coffee. —Helen Lipko, Martinsburg, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated reduced-fat crescent rolls
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Sugar substitute equivalent to 1/2 cup sugar, divided
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fat-free milk

Directions

  • 1. Unroll crescent dough into a rectangle; seal seams and perforations. Combine the cinnamon and half of the sugar substitute; sprinkle over dough. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; seal edge. Cut into eight slices.
  • 2. Place rolls cut side down in a 9-in. round baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 375° for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • 3. In a small bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar, milk and remaining sugar substitute; drizzle over warm rolls. Yield: 8 servings.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with Splenda sugar blend.

"Morning Cinnamon Rolls were quick and easy to assemble, and they were very tasty. I usually don't care for sugar substitutes, but it worked well in this recipe. I'll definitely be making these little cinnamon gems again! -- Kristine Chayes, Smithtown, N.Y."

"These turned out to be an amazing surprise but i did alter it a little.I added a little extra cinnamon and a TB of crushed walnuts to the filling mix, made an extra half recipe of filling but only half of the icing amount. After spraying the pan I sprinkled a little of the brown sugar/cinnamon/nut mix over the bottom of the pan. After unrolling the crescents and sprinkling on most of the sugar mix, I added a TB of raisins, rolled it up and continued with recipe. The leftover sugar mix was sprinkled over the tops. When cooked wait a minute and then turn over onto a plate. You have a beautiful glazed finish which will only need the smallest drizzle of icing.OMG, I should have made 2 pans!"

MY REVIEW

"My husband absolutely loved these as did I. And as much as we both love sugar, I think the next time I will make the glaze without the sugar in it. There is so much on the rolls itself that I think the sugar added to the glaze too makes it just a little bit of an overload. But it is still definitely a keeper in my recipe box, and I cannot wait to make these again! Thanks for a quick and awesome recipe!"

"They are tasty but very small. Be sure to securely pinch together the perforations on the crescent rolls otherwise the dough will break apart. The recipe says it makes 9 rolls, I ended up with 8 little rolls. Also, use an 8" square pan or 9" round cake pan, no larger because then the pan will be much too big for the number of rolls."

"Several said why  not use the Grands Cinnamon rolls?   That is a thicker, completely different texture/dough.  Would not be as rich and good as this dough.   I think I will take the suggestion to use the sheets of crescents that have no seams,  dust board with some flour and try again.  they are sure worth experimenting.   Rather costly, but worth it once in a while.  "

"They were wonder, quick and I would make them again, but there has to be an easier way to seal that darn dough! It stuck to the board, came apart and they were ugly when they finished baking. I'm wondering about dusting surface AND hands with some flour? Worth doing again though and hubby really liked them."

"I have to admit, I have tried several recipes using crescent rolls, it is not easy. The seams do not hold and when you roll it up, it tends to tear. I agree, just buy the low fat grands, save yourself the trouble."

Try adding some orange peel with the raisins, then add peel to drizzle as well. Makes them different.
