Three things that I adore in any recipe:

  1. EASY
  2. Mini
  3. Breakfast!!

And when you put them all together in one delicious little cinnamon bun? I’m sold.

Everything starts out with a can of crescent roll dough. If you can find the kind that’s not perforated, all the better. But if not (I never can), simply pinch together the seams to form one solid rectangle of dough.

Then sprinkle the whole thing with cinnamon and brown sugar. Unlike regular yeasted cinnamon rolls, we don’t need any butter at this step, because there is already so much butter in the dough itself.

Roll the dough and slice it up, just like you would regular cinnamon rolls.

If your seams start to break apart a little (you can see mine did), don’t worry about it. Just pinch them together as best you can. These don’t have to be perfectly pretty to be perfectly delicious!

As you can see…

Be sure to grease the pan really well before sticking these guys in there. All that brown sugar can really create a sticky situation!

Then bake, frost, and YUM!

Mini Cinnamon Rolls (No Yeast)

These melt in your mouth cinnamon rolls couldn't be easier thanks to refrigerated crescent roll dough!

Ingredients:

8 oz. crescent roll dough

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tbsp cinnamon

For the Icing:

3 tbsp melted butter

1 cup powdered sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1-2 tbsp milk

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425ºF (follow the temperature recommendation on the package of dough).

Prepare a mini muffin tin by greasing 12 of the cups.

Roll out the dough and pinch together the seams to form one solid rectangle of dough.

Sprinkle the brown sugar and cinnamon over top, ensuring that the dough is evenly coated.

Roll up the dough. Cut into 1 inch pieces, and place each piece in a greased cup of the mini muffin pan.

Bake for 12-14 minutes (or according to package directions).

Meanwhile, make the icing by vigorously mixing together the butter, powdered, sugar, vanilla, and milk (1 tbsp milk for thicker icing, 2 tbsp for thinner).

Spread icing and serve while cinnamon rolls are warm.
