Crescent Cinnamon Rolls

Prep & Cook Time 40 min
Serves 8

Ingredients

For the cinnamon rolls:

  • 1 can crescent rolls
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup brown sugar, lightly packed

For the frosting:

  • 1 8-ounce block cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2–3 tablespoons Kemps Milk

How to

For the cinnamon rolls:

  • Heat oven to 350 F and butter a round cake pan.
  • Unroll crescent roll dough onto a lightly floured surface. Layer each triangle slightly over the other in a two-by-four rectangle. Press to seal all edges together.
  • In a small bowl, mash together butter, cinnamon and brown sugar. Spread over crescent roll dough — edge to edge.
  • Starting on the long edge, tightly roll dough into a log and press to seal the edge. Using a serrated knife, slice into eight equal rounds.
  • Place in prepared cake pan, rolls touching, and bake 18–20 minutes or until golden.

For the frosting:

  • While the rolls bake, beat together cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment until fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  • Add in milk as needed to slightly thin the mixture.
  • Once rolls are baked, let cool 5 minutes before coating in frosting.
