These sound great, but I'm one for baking from scratch. Instead of using a package refrigerated crescent rolls, how can a make these from scratch?

Hello! Unfortunately, we do not have an entirely from-scratch recipe for cinnamon rolls on our site at the moment, as we try to provide our viewers with quick & easy recipes. However, we do have a recipe for "Food Court Cinnamon Buns" that uses frozen bread dough, which is a little more homemade than crescent rolls. Hope you'll still give 'em a try and let us know what you think! :)

They tasted o.k. I had a really hard time slicing the rolls so they came out ugly but still tasted o.k.

I haven't made it yet so I will but I don't know when but when I do I will take a picture and post it to this site ...

Just what you need on a cold winter's night. Very easy and delicious especially with the milk and powdered sugar glaze!

the easiest way to unroll crescent rolls is what?

Hi there! We recommend unrolling as per the directions on the can. Crescent rolls usually pop open in a tube shape, which can be unrolled flat. Enjoy!

Wonderful & easy!! I put a glaze of powdered sugar & milk over rolls after baking--yum!!! I love Mr. Food's recipes--they are easy & I always get lots of complements!!!

The Quick Cinnamon Rolls are so easy & delicious!!! My husband loved them & I will make them a lot because they are so easy. Thank you.

These are very easy to make and delicious. I added pecans to mine.

Looks yummy. Will give this recipe a try. Thanks Mr. Food.
