I LOVE making stuff, but sometimes it being "semi-homemade" makes it so much more appealing to attempt! Here's what I made tonight. I had a roll of Pillsbury refrigerated pizza crust left over, after making these pizza rolls. They turned out so good I decided to play around with making cinnamon rolls since my boys were asking . . . "What's for dessert?" This is what I came up with and they were mmm mmm good!
In my opinion, much better than storebought canned cinnamon rolls. Semi-homemade proved to be easy and yummy!
Here's what you will need:
1 can Pillsbury pizza crust
2 tbsp softened margarine or butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven at 425*
Lay out wax paper on countertop (about the size of a 9x13 pan), spread thin amount of flour on surface.
Unroll dough on top of flour.
Use a butter knife to carefully spread softened butter/margarine over entire dough.
Mix all sugar and cinnamon in small bowl.
Sprinkle the sugar/cinnamon, covering the whole piece of dough.
Roll the dough tightly, starting at the shorter end of the rectangle, pinching the 2 ends as you go.
(I pinched the ends and the sugar mixture still spilled out of the ends. It's okay, just lick it up!)
Stretch the rolled dough to make the roll even
Use a sharp knife (I used serrated) to slice the roll into 1-1 1/2in. pieces.
Place on greased cookie sheet, about 1in apart.
Cook for 10-12 minutes.
While those are cooking, mix your glaze. You'll need to combine the following:
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tbsp milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
If your glaze it too thick, add a little more milk.
When the cinnamon rolls are done baking, drizzle the glaze on top while they are still hot!
I dare you to NOT eat them all! (Makes about 8-10 depending on how thick you slice them)
