Servings 8


  • 1 tube Crescent roll dough
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp white sugar
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon, ground


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Use nonstick spray, butter or a silicone pan liner to prevent sticking. If you have a toaster oven size pan, that works to have the buns close together. Pan I used is 6 x 9.
  • On a silicone liner or floured surface, unroll the crescent rolls keeping the triangles connected if possible. They will form a rectangle once opened. Gently press the dough to seal the perforated edges of each crescent roll.
  • Combine melted butter and sugars together. Add cinnamon. Blend. Brush the mixture over the dough. Leave 1/4 inch from the edge free from mixture.
  • Starting from the top, roll sugared dough down and smooth out edges. Take rolled dough and cut into 8 cinnamon buns.
  • Place each roll on to prepared pan.
  • Bake for 14-18 minutes. Let cool for 3 minutes before removing from pan. Enjoy!
