Crescent Dough Cinnamon Rolls

Homemade cinnamon rolls are a million times better than store bought, but yeast dough can be finicky and intimidating. This version uses Crescent rolls as the dough, eliminating the guess work and waiting time and guaranteeing perfectly flaky, buttery cinnamon rolls (because dry cinnamon roll dough is the worst!).  Cream cheese in the filling cuts the sweetness and provides the perfect balance.


Whenever I see cinnamon rolls on brunch menus, I basically HAVE to order them. Unfortunately more often than not they are disappointing in more ways than one -- dry dough, not enough filling, too sweet.. Making them at home can solve all of these issues, but yeast dough is a fickle beast and the tube cinnamon rolls just aren't the same.

These cinnamon rolls are the perfect solution! They have all of the traits of a perfect homemade roll without the hassle and wait time of yeast dough.
