Cinnamon Rolls

  • 1 sheet refrigerated puff pastry dough (I used Wewalka brand puff pastry)
  • flour for dusting
  • 4 tablespoons butter (softened)
  • cup brown sugar
  • 1 ½ tablespoons ground cinnamon

Cinnamon Roll Icing

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter (softened)


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Lightly flour a parchment-lined baking sheet and lay each puff pastry sheet flat over it.
  • Mix together the filling by combining the softened butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Then spread the cinnamon-sugar mixture evenly across the surface of the dough.
  • Roll the dough up and cut into 9-12 even rounds with the spiral side facing up. Bake for 20 minutes, or until turning golden brown.


  • Add powdered sugar, vanilla, milk, and butter to a bowl and mix together with a hand mixer until smooth.
  • Remove cinnamon rolls from the oven and drizzle with icing.


Using softened butter is important or things won't mix or spread as easily.
Pecans can be added to the cinnamon rolls as well if desired.
If you don't have a hand mixer, a whisk can be used instead.
