Mini Cinnamon Rolls

I love cinnamon rolls for breakfast on the weekends but I don't like having to make them so I usually cheat by buying Pillsbury's Sweet Rolls. Then I went recipe hunting on Google and combined a couple that I liked of the one sounded really easy and I am madly in love with how easy and fast these were.

Butter, Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, cinnamon, and brown sugar.

First open up the can of crescent rolls, take half of the dough and press all of the seams together. Repeat for the other half of the dough.

Then roll of the seams together. Spread melted butter over the dough. I had to melt the butter on the oven because the microwave is still no hooked up.

Evenly sprinkle the brown sugar over the dough and add as much cinnamon that makes your heart happy.

Roll and then cut into even pieces. Grease a mini cupcake pan and place them into the pan. Cook the cinnamon rolls according to the package (375° for 10 to 12 minutes for the Pillsbury Crescent Rolls).

While the rolls are cooking you can make the yummy icing to go on top of them.

Milk (I used low fat but you could probably use whatever you wanted), maple syrup and powder sugar.

Mix the milk and the syrup together.

Add powder sugar until you reach the desirable consistency for your icing. I really don't know the amount of powder sugar that I used fiveish(yes that is a word) spoonfuls.

Pull the yumminess of cinnamon rolls out of the oven.

Drizzle the icing over them and make a big mess for your other half to clean up. Rule in this house is the one cooks doesn't do the dishes. And since he his cooking skills are about maxed out at boiling water and putting something on the grill, I don't do the dishes all that often. 

Put then on a nice plate; grab two forks.

Then give to the hungry man and enjoy. Sadly to say the two of us ate them all.
