Super Easy Homemade Cinnamon Rolls

August 29, 2020

I will never forget my first warm cinnamon roll. I was young and we were vacationing in Ocean City, New Jersey. We were walking the boardwalk and my mom got us a cinnamon roll to split. My goodness, it was the best and to this day, it is still one of my favorite breakfast treats!

I usually make mine from scratch but I wanted to find a way to make it easy so that we could enjoy cinnamon rolls more often. And I did!! Now I don't have to wake up early to make the dough. And no more waiting for the dough to rise. Instead, with this super easy recipe, you just need refrigerated pizza dough from your grocery store! Honestly, this is the easiest recipe ever! You will become known for your "famous homemade cinnamon rolls" with this quick recipe! Who doesn't love warm and gooey cinnamon rolls fresh from the oven? These are amazing!

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

4 tbsp butter, melted

Glaze Ingredients:

1 cup powdered sugar, sifted

1 tsp vanilla extract

  2. On a floured counter, roll out the pizza dough into a 16"x10" rectangle.

  3. Brush the melted butter onto the whole surface of the dough.

  4. Sprinkle the brown sugar mixture on top and spread out with the back of a spoon so that every part of the dough is covered.

  5. Roll up the dough into a log and cut it into 8 equal pieces.

  6. Spray a nonstick cake pan with cooking spray.

  7. Place the 8 pieces on their sides in the pan, so that you can see the cinnamon sugar swirls.

  9. While the cinnamon rolls are baking in the oven, whisk together the sifted powdered sugar, milk and vanilla to make your glaze.

  10. When the cinnamon rolls are done, spoon the glaze over top and enjoy warm.

A nice hot cup of coffee tastes amazing with these cinnamon rolls! This honestly is the best breakfast ever! And is perfect for those special holiday breakfasts!
