Finish your easy cinnamon rolls with an equally simple homemade glaze using just powdered sugar and a little milk.

You could add a little more cinnamon to the glaze if you’re feeling crazy. Topping with chopped walnuts or pecans would also taste great.

  10. These are very easy and delicious, plus they are even good as leftovers, which canned cinnamon rolls are not! I make these for my teenaged son as a treat. I use the Aldi’s jumbo biscuits ($.79) much cheaper and way better than the already canned cinnamon rolls. Thanks! 

  11. Can these be made the night before or even made and frozen? 

  12. Could you add diced apples to recipe!

  13. I veganized recipe by using plant based milk and butter and used pumpkin spice as a sub for the cinnamon. Was really good!

  14. These were so easy and fun to make and awesome!!!!!!!! Thanks for much my son ate them all up! My husband and son fought over the last one! Delicious!

  15. Super easy and delicious !! I also added walnuts (on half , for the wife) and a little extra cinnamon !!

  16. I started baking at 14, now at 63 I do it to relax, being from my neighborhood it wasn’t cool for boy to bake, but as I got older the ladies like .y cookin’ and bakin’ especially my homemade apple crisp.

  17. My husband is only gets 1 day off and we were sitting here drinking coffee when he said he’d really like some cinnamon rolls! I knew I’d be able to find a quick easy recipe but wasn’t sure how good they’d be. Yours are delicious!! Thanks for sharing!

  18. This recipe is perfect. Thank You.

  19. My son liked them! Easy & quick, I like them too… much!! Lol! Thanks!!

  20. I made these tonight with a small (5 biscuits) can and sort of eyeballed the ingredients from there. They were so easy and yummy! I did add a dribble of vanilla and teaspoon of sour cream to the icing and it was amazing. Also topped with the only nuts I had on hand – sliced almonds. Highly recommend! Thank you!

  21. Can these be rolled up at night and baked the next morning?

  22. Was a really easy recipe to follow! Turned out great. I used brown sugar instead of regular and added in a little more cinnamon. The recipe didn’t state how thick to make the dough when you rolled it out, so I just guessed and did 1/4 in rectangle. I also rolled it up starting on the long end instead of the short end for smalller rolls. Made 12 smaller rolls. So yummy and good, I didn’t even make frosting for them!

  23. So easy and delicious

  24. Made this. Super easy. I added raisins & pecans and added a little cinnamon to the glaze.

  25. This is the easiest recipe.  Simply delicious. I add pecans? love it.

  26. Fantastic girl!!!!!!?
