Yield 20 rolls
If you need a holiday breakfast in a hurry, these 6-ingredient mini cinnamon rolls are the perfect choice. The secret shortcut is using refrigerated crescent rolls. 

Ingredients

  • 1 (8-ounce) can refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup sifted powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon milk
  • 1 drop vanilla extract

How to Make It

  1. Unroll crescent roll dough, and separate into 4 rectangles; pinch seams to seal.

  2. Stir together sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle evenly over rectangles.

  3. Roll up, jellyroll fashion, starting with a long side; press edges to seal. Cut each log into 5 slices, and place in a lightly greased 8-inch round cakepan.

  4. Bake at 350° for 12 minutes.

  5. Combine powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla, stirring until smooth; drizzle over warm cinnamon rolls.
