Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls with Icing come in a roll tube just like canned biscuits. Pull on the cardboard wrapping and it pops open to reveal the cinnamon roll dough and a small can of icing. In 8-18 minutes (according to how soft that your family likes them), you have fresh from the oven, warm cinnamon rolls with icing. Ready to eat and smelling so yummy!
2 1/4 inches of dough makes into about a 3-inch cinnamon roll, according to how you place them on the pan. We put ours close together in the pan as that makes them softer. The cinnamon rolls are rolled into form and can be eaten by pulling apart the finished cooked dough. They taste of cinnamon and when the cream cheese icing is put on them, they have a sweet cinnamon flavor. Unlike cinnamon toast, they taste and feel more bready. The cream cheese icing melts when put on the fresh from the oven hot rolls. So a little icing goes a long way. It will drizzle more than cover the cinnamon rolls, as icing on a cake does.
The label says not to microwave or freeze the dough. I do not know how long these can be kept in the fridge as they are gone quickly in our house! Great for breakfast or snack, everyone loves cinnamon rolls. It also makes the whole house smell cinnamon-y. Serving size is only one roll, calories for each roll is 150 and calories from fat is 45. Total fat is 5 g, saturated fat is 1.5 g, and trans fat is 2 g. The sodium comes in at 340 mg and sugars at 10 g. Remember, that is only one roll! So if you eat more than one roll, you would need to double or triple that. One roll usually is enough to satisfy us as they are filling.
My experience with baking them: We like ours soft so was disappointed that even removing the rolls early, the bottoms were tough. Some people may like a brown bottom to their cinnamon rolls, but we prefer soft all over cinnamon rolls. The tops and middles were perfect, but the bottom did get harder than we would have liked. They also stuck to my pan even with a little grease applied to it.
All in all, we love cinnamon rollsm and Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls with Icing has everything that we crave. Yummy cinnamon-y rolls with creamy melted cream cheese icing that goes together wonderfully for a flavor no one can refuse! The scent of them cooking draws everyone to the kitchen.
Bring back memories of old with cinnamon rolls for the whole family. A wonderful treat or breakfast item that no one refuses.
