Simply Fresh Cinnamon Rolls

I don't know about you and your house, but while all of the attention for Thanksgiving is focused on the big meal of the day ~ the first meal of the day is still expected!  Imagine that! You too?

To make Thanksgiving simple but special, I like to treat my family to these 'homemade' cinnamon rolls (sure...I get a little help from canned crescent rolls, but I do make them homemade, right?!)

Start by rolling out a can of crescent roll dough and pressing all of the seams together.

Now brush this with about 1/4 cup of melted butter

Next...sprinkle a full recipe of  Spiced Dip blend (recipe here), or 1/4 cup of the bulk blend, over the entire surface of the dough. 

Now just roll up the dough starting at one end, rolling as tightly as you can. When you get it completely rolled, press the end into the dough to form a sealed seam.

It's time to cut the roll into individual cinnamon rolls. 
I recommend using a serrated knife. 
This is how I make sure they are all about the same size:

Place the rolls onto a 9x13 baking dish that has been sprayed with a nonstick spray.  These will bake at the temperature recommended on the crescent roll dough package for about 10 minutes.

While these are baking, make the glaze to drizzle over the top of the finished rolls.  To make this you will need one batch of the Simple ~ No Bake Cheesecake dry mix blend (see instructions here for making this blend from the dry ingredients)

Into a bowl place the 3/4 cup of powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons of the brown sugar listed in the No Bake Cheesecake Recipe (or 1 cup of the mix if you have made the bulk blend as suggested under Tami's Tip) 

To this you will add 3-4 tablespoons of liquid.  Options include:

  • milk
  • orange juice
  • coffee
  • cranberry juice
  • flavored coffee creamers (I like to use the Pumpkin flavor in the fall!)

Stir this mixture, adding just enough liquid to get the consistency you desire to glaze your cinnamon rolls.
When the rolls are done (very lightly golden brown and soft), drizzle your glaze on top and serve warm!
