The Easiest (TikTok) Cinnamon Rolls

5 Rolls
35 min

Super-easy cinnamon roll ideas are all over social media! They’re also known as TikTok Cinnamon Rolls. I’ve been wanting to try them out for awhile, and I finally had a chance! These are what you could call semi-homemade—the “recipe” uses a can of store-bought cinnamon rolls from the refrigerated section and heavy whipping cream. You can’t get any simpler than that, right?

And these are not only super-simple, but super-yummy! They bake up nice and fluffy, and the whipping cream gives them a wonderfully moist texture.

When arranging the unbaked rolls in the 8″ or 9″ square pan, you’ll need to cut the 5th roll in half so they’ll all fit (refer to the photo above). This recipe makes 5 cinnamon rolls, but if you want to make 10, just double the recipe and bake them in a larger oval baking dish or a 9×13″ baking pan.

  • 1 can (5-count) Pillsbury Grands Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Icing (the icing is included in the can)
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 Tablespoon heavy whipping cream

Preheat oven to 350˚F. Grease or spray an 8″ or 9″ square baking pan.
Open the can of cinnamon rolls and arrange rolls in your prepared pan (save the little container of icing in the can to use later).
Pour the heavy whipping cream over the tops of all the cinnamon rolls—they should be fully coated with the cream.
Bake at 350˚F for 25 to 27 minutes, until golden.
Remove from oven and spread the icing from the cinnamon roll can on the tops of the cinnamon rolls while they are warm. Serve immediately.

      wow, that was a bit critical and knock down. While they may not be as good as your homemade, they are pretty darn tasty...especially when you doctor the icing with a little more cream cheese and powdered sugar. I say, you go, Nancy C!!

      Yep. Those are yeasted, not just biscuit dough with sugar and cinnamon. I'm not sure what flavor profile the heavy cream adds, I just know it works and it's great.
