Hey y’all!

So we’ll just start out by saying that both of us absolutely LOVE cinnamon rolls. We love them. So this morning for breakfast, we decided to try something new. We found this recipe for 8 minute cinnamon rolls on the Iowa Girl Eats site and thought we would try it out ourselves. Now, we will say that they definitely took a bit longer than 8 minutes, but they were fairly easy.

We started with one pack of Pillsbury Crescent rolls. We took half of the pack (4) and placed them next to each other. After pinching the seams together, we rolled it out to make an even rectangle

Then, using a pastry brush, we covered it with a little less than a tablespoon of butter. We sprinkled it with cinnamon and brown sugar rolled it into a stick of goodness.

Our trick for slicing the rolls was to use dental floss! Just grab some unminted dental floss and slice away! They end up slicing really easily.

After you slice them, you can place them into a greased pan. We always grease our pans with our magic pan release (which can be found here). You can then start on your other half of the dough, repeating the same process. We ended up with 18 rolls in all.

The glaze is a simple combination of syrup, milk, and baking powder. After baking for 8 minutes, we poured our glaze over the warm cinnamon rolls. They came out perectly and tasted absolutely heavenly!

So simple, yet SO delicious.

Thanks for reading!
