Mini cinnamon rolls are a favorite recipe in my house. I can’t even remember how long ago I got the recipe but I do know it was before I had kids.

This is really one of the easiest recipes you’ll ever make. I know, I say that a lot, but it really is. It’s just 7 ingredients and there’s a good chance you have everything on hand.

What ingredients do I need to make mini cinnamon rolls?

  • Crescent Rolls
  • Cinnamon
  • Sugar
  • Confectioners’ Sugar
  • Milk
  • Pure Vanilla Extract
  • Butter

Cinnamon Sugar shaker

If you’re like me, you probably have cinnamon sugar made and in your spice rack. My kids love putting it on toast and bagels. I actually have a dedicated shaker for it.

A few tips to making these tiny cinnamon rolls

I used Pillsbury crescent rolls. When you separate the rectangles, pinch together the diagonal perforations. I’ve never used a store brand version of crescent rolls but I’m sure they would work just fine.

I cut 8 mini rolls from each log. This is really easy to do. Cut the log in half, then cut each half in half, then each of those halves in half. Did you follow that?

Just because the edges of the rolls look golden, make sure the center of the pan is fully cooked. You do not want a gooey center.

When I serve this treat I cut it into wedges. Sometimes it’s fun to make individual portions.
