  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius). In order to prevent food from sticking to a baking sheet, you can either line it with parchment paper or lightly grease it with butter.
  • In the event that you are using crescent roll dough that was purchased from a store, carefully unroll the dough onto a tidy and level surface. If you would rather make your own croissant dough, there are a lot of recipes available online for you to choose from.


  • The butter that has been softened, the granulated sugar, and the ground cinnamon should be mixed together in a small bowl until they are thoroughly combined. The cinnamon filling that you will use is this.
  • A small border should be left around the edges of the crescent roll dough, and the cinnamon filling should be spread out evenly across the surface of the dough.


  • This will add an additional layer of sweetness and a deeper level of flavour to the cinnamon filling. Sprinkle the brown sugar evenly over the filling.
  • From one end, begin rolling the dough into a log shape, making sure that the filling is contained within the log that you have created. Put the log through a sharp knife and slice it into individual rolls, each of which should be about an inch thick.


  • Arrange the rolls in a single layer on the baking sheet that has been prepared, leaving some space between each roll to allow for expansion while they are baking.
  • In an oven that has been preheated, bake the cinnamon rolls with croissants for twelve to fifteen minutes, or until they have a golden brown colour and have risen to the top.


  • The glaze can be made by combining the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract in a small bowl and whisking them together until they are smooth and creamy. This can be done while the rolls are baking. Make any necessary adjustments to the consistency by adding additional milk.
  • When the rolls have reached the desired level of doneness, take them out of the oven and allow them to cool down for a few minutes on the baking sheet.


  • Allow the glaze to seep into the crevices and nooks of the warm croissant cinnamon rolls so that it can achieve the fullest possible flavour. Drizzle the glaze generously over the rolls.
  • If you want to make a delightful breakfast or snack, serve the croissant cinnamon rolls warm. You can serve them on their own or with a hot cup of coffee or tea.



Q1. Why are my cinnamon rolls soggy in the middle?


They won’t be done if the cinnamon rolls aren’t cooked all the way through. To keep this from happening, make sure to bake for the amount of time given.

Q2. Should I use crescent rolls dough or a crescent dough sheet?

For this simple recipe, you can use either crescent roll dough or a crescent dough sheet. The dough sheet might be a little better because it is smooth and doesn’t have any holes in it like crescent roll dough does. Don’t worry, though! It will work just fine if all you have on hand are crescent rolls. Read my “Expert Tips” to learn how to work with dough like a pro.


Q3. How to best store this recipe?

This crescent roll cinnamon roll recipe can be kept in the fridge in a container that won’t let air in. For up to three days, the rolls will taste their best. Since the cream cheese glaze is made with both butter and cream cheese, I don’t think this recipe should be kept at room temperature.

Q4. How to re-heat easy crescent cinnamon rolls?

To warm these rolls up again, just put them in the microwave for 20 to 40 seconds, depending on how many you want to reheat. You could also put it back in the oven to heat it up again. I think you should put a lid on them and bake them at 300 degrees F for 5 to 10 minutes, or until they are warm all the way through.
