Using crescent roll dough to make a cinnamon roll with cream cheese frosting is a total game changer. It never occurred to me I could use this type of dough but now that I’ve figured it out I’ll never do it any other way! Although I’ve referred to these rolls as cinnamon rolls they do not actually co rain cinnamon. It just wouldn’t go with these flavors but it’s the classic term for this type of dessert so I’ve referenced it a few times. 

Simple crescent roll and cream cheese dessert recipe ideas like this one are delicious and fun for the whole family. It’s so easy to make it too, all you really need is a few inexpensive baking ingredients! 

Orange Cream Rolls

Ingredients for the rolls and filling:

  • 2 (8oz) cans of crescent roll dough
  • 4 oz butter (room temperature)
  • 1/2 tbsp orange extract
  • 1/4 cup orange sprinkles
  • 16 oz mini marshmallows
  • 1 cups powdered sugar
  • Ingredients for the frosting:
  • 4 oz cream cheese (room temperature)
  • 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tbsp heavy cream

How do you make this creative twist on cinnamon rolls with cream cheese frosting?

Start by lining a flat surface with parchment paper and rolling out the crescent roll dough side by side creating one large rectangle. Manually pinch the precut edges together. The next step is to combine the filling ingredients in a bowl and stir them. Use a spatula or basting brush to lather the dough with the filling, make another layer of sprinkles, and one layer of marshmallows, before preheating the oven to 375 degrees F. 

Bake the rolls for 14 minutes

Start at one of the longer edges and roll inwards like a rug until you have one long log. Slice the log into 9 pieces then line your cake pan with parchment paper. Place the rolls inside the pan and bake for about 14 minutes. 

Bake the rolls for 14 minutes
