15 Minute Mini Cinnamon Rolls

15 Minute Miniature Cinnamon Rolls - starts off with a can of crescent rolls!

Truth be told.  I love cinnamon rolls.  Like a deep down kind of love, maybe even passionate to an extent.  I mean, their cinnamon rolls!

Sadly, some days my super mom cape is at the dry cleaners though, and I don’t have the time (or energy) to make them from scratch.

Enter the best short-cut method ever.  You only need 4 ingredients, and one of them is a can of crescent rolls.

Other than the crescent dough, the only other things you need are melted butter, cinnamon, & brown sugar. Roll out your crescent roll dough, taking care to press the seams together.  Brush on the melted butter & then sprinkle on brown sugar & cinnamon to taste. Then gently, but tightly, roll up.

    I’m 26 weeks pregnant. I was having a pretty serious craving for cinnamon rolls the other day and since my boyfriend takes the only vehicle we have for work, I was at home, craving hardcore. I have made cinnamon rolls before but hate when I burn them and/or the bottoms get all hard. I’m going to try this probably tomorrow. I, ironically, have all the ingredients for them. My 4 year old would love helping me make them anyway. 😀

    Thanks for the awesome idea!

  • I just made these. My daughter and I LOVE them. THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!!

    These are WONDERFUL! Thank you for putting this up. I wonder if you could use mini muffin/cupcake tins?

  • Sorry, that “guest” post below is me. I am wanting to take these for my son’s birthday party at school. Cupcake tins make distribution easier. Any thoughts?
