Bake quick and delicious Cinnamon Rolls.

Look at this perfect little sweet creation. What if I told you that you only needed four ingredients for the rolls and three ingredients for the icing? What if I also told you that you only need 30 minutes prep time (not including thaw time) and less than 15 minutes bake time? Well, if you can believe it, that's all it takes to make these simple cinnamon rolls. No messing around with the hassle of traditional cinnamon rolls. You just need a few ingredients and a little bit of time. Before you know it your taste buds will be graciously thanking you!

All you need are some Rhodes™ Dinner Rolls, thawed but still cold (I used the Texas rolls because I wanted mine a little bigger), some melted butter, sugar and a little bit of cinnamon. For the icing you will need some powdered sugar, a little milk and a little vanilla (I used clear vanilla so my glaze would be bright white...not pictured (I tried the pure vanilla the first time around and didn't like the "brown" glaze so I started over)))!

Roll each roll into a 10-inch rope. Or whatever length you can get it. My ropes kept shrinking up on me.

Immediately transfer them to the other shallow bowl with the cinnamon sugar. Coat them nice and good. You will want to lick your fingers at this point. But resist!

Coil each rope and place in a sprayed 9x13-inch baking pan. I used a 9x9 and only added 12 rolls. Sprinkle any remaining cinnamon sugar over rolls.

Cover with plastic wrap and let rise. Depending on how warm it is in your house will determine how long you will have to let them rise.

Let them rise until double in size. I put them out on my patio table and in no time they were more than doubled... oops!

Remove wrap and bake at 350°F 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. The tops may brown before they are completely done, for the last five minutes or so you may want to cover them with foil to prevent further browning and ensure they are not doughy on the bottom.
