Cinnamon Rolls:

  • 1 (8 ounce) package refrigerated crescent rolls

  • ¾ cup dark brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon


  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar

  • 2 tablespoons milk, or more as needed

  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Make rolls: Unroll crescent roll dough onto a silicone baking mat or lightly greased work surface and separate into 4 rectangles; firmly press diagonal perforations with your fingers to smooth them out.

  3. Mix together brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl; sprinkle evenly over rectangles.

  4. Roll each rectangle into a log starting from the longer side; cut each log into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Arrange cinnamon rolls close to one another on the prepared baking sheet.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until golden, 10 to 13 minutes. Transfer cinnamon rolls to a plate and let cool for 1 minute.

  6. While cinnamon rolls are baking, make icing: Stir together confectioners' sugar, milk, and vanilla in a small bowl until smooth.

  7. Pour icing over warm rolls.
