Morning Cinnamon Rolls

Convenient crescent roll dough hurries along these yummy glazed rolls. This recipe was found in a cookbook and slimmed down by using sugar substitute instead of sugar. With hot coffee, these buns are a guilt-free morning treat.


8 servings


1 (8 ounce) tube refrigerated reduced-fat crescent rolls
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
sugar substitute equivalent to 1/2 cup sugar, divided
1/4 cup confectioners' (powdered) sugar
1 tablespoon fat-free milk


Preheat oven to 375°F (191°C). Coat a round baking pan with cooking spray.

Unroll crescent dough into a rectangle; seal seams and perforations. Combine the cinnamon and half of the sugar substitute; sprinkle over dough. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; seal edge. Cut into eight slices. Place rolls cut side down in prepared baking pan.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. In a small bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar, milk and remaining sugar substitute; drizzle over warm rolls.
