Cooking Vessel Sizebaking sheet lined with parchment paper

Homemade Cinnamon Rolls Recipe
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix sugar and cinnamon together. On cutting board, roll out crescent roll dough so that it lays flat like a rectangle. Pinch seams together so that there are no wide open cracks.
Spread butter over rolls and sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture over buttered dough.
Roll your crescent roll dough back up into a log. Cut log into 5 even pieces. Place flat on baking sheet.
Repeat entire process with the other tube of crescent roll dough (you could also do both simultaneously if you have enough counter space).
Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Mix powdered sugar and milk (or juice) together.
When rolls come out of the oven, drizzle glaze over the tops. You can also sprinkle any leftover cinnamon sugar over rolls. Let cool a little and serve.
