Easy breezy crescent cinnamon rolls made with store bought crescent dough are just perfect when you are craving something sweet for breakfast.
For the last day of this week’s mega marathon under breakfast theme, I have a sweet treat that is a breeze to make. These easy crescent cinnamon rolls take less than 10 minutes of hands on time. They are great for those mornings when you are craving something sweet. This recipe uses store bought crescent roll dough and it cannot get easier than that to make this scrumptious breakfast.In the original, my very first list I made, of the dishes to make for Mega marathon I had some baked breakfast treats. I had been planning to make Swedish cinnamon rolls and a savory breakfast casserole for a very long time and I thought this would be the perfect time. But as luck would have it, life got in the way and as it got closer to the post date, panic set in - original list went out of the window and a bare bones version of it emerged.So this quick and easy crescent cinnamon rolls were born both out of necessity (to use the tube of store bought crescent dough) and to appease my kids request for cinnamon rolls. Recipe idea is from The Kitchn site. All you need is a tube of crescent dough - I used Pillsbury brand and if you didn’t already know this is a vegan product. I’m not saying these are healthy but I guess we can all indulge once a week, right??Adding orange zest to cinnamon sugar adds so much flavor and makes these rolls delicious extra special. The whole batch was gone in a matter of minutes. Great for breakfast, brunch, tea time snack or just about any time when sweet craving strikes.
We take a little breather tomorrow and will be back on Monday with a brand new theme and more yummy dishes. So Stay tuned. Until then, here's a recap of the breakfast dishes I made this week:
Day 1 - Podi Idli
Day 2 - Appam with Stew
Day 3 - Spring Vegetable Kedgeree
Day 4 - Overnight Oats - 2 ways
Day 5 - Open Face Egg Sandwich

That is such a great idea. I really have to admire bakers and cooks who will take a product and then enhance it. Having crescent rolls and frozen dough on hand is a huge help. Now, I'm craving a sweet roll. I've got crescent rolls on my grocery list.
I LOVE cinnamon rolls. These are great to an afternoon latte break, or I would love these for brunch on the weekend.
