Mini Cinnamon Rolls

I have come across quite a few good recipes on Pinterest. I have made this one twice now and LOVE these mini cinnamon rolls. They are a great, quick breakfast, especially for company. Mom and I made these Monday morning along with some piggies as a way to refuel from the race weekend. : )

Mini Cinnamon Rolls

from Iowa Girl Eats

Ingredients (makes 16 mini cinnamon rolls)

  • 1-8oz tube crescent roll dough
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • cinnamon
  • brown sugar
  • For the maple icing:
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon skim milk
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar


  • Preheat oven according to crescent roll dough package directions. Layout half the dough (4 triangles) and pinch all the seams together. Flip over and pinch the seams on the back side together too.
  • Using a rolling pin, smooth the seams and roll the dough into a square about 1/4″ thick. Brush with half the butter, and sprinkle with as much cinnamon and brown sugar as you want. Roll into a log and cut into 8 pieces.
  • Place mini cinnamon rolls into a non-stick sprayed mini muffin tin. Repeat steps 1 and 2 with the other half of the crescent roll dough. Bake according to package directions.
  • Meanwhile whisk together maple syrup and milk in a bowl. Add in powdered sugar until desired consistency is reached. Drizzle over warm cinnamon rolls.
