Our Coffee-Glazed Cinnamon Rolls Recipe Is an Easy-Prep Fluffy Treat That Wows

Nothing beats the aroma of sweet and fragrant cinnamon rolls wafting your kitchen. This recipe for Coffee-Glazed Cinnamon Rolls doesn’t disappoint as it contains those same sugary flavors with a caffeine twist. But first, sheets of crescent dough are filled with a cinnamon-sugar mixture before they’re sliced into rolls. After chilling in the fridge overnight, they’re baked until golden brown and then drizzled with a coffee-infused glaze. The end result is a batch of sweet and nutty buns that bake to yummy perfection in as little as 22 minutes.

While this recipe is scrumptious as is, simple tweaks can make it even tastier! Try adding orange zest to the filling mixture for a subtle citrus zing. Combine dried currants with raisins or cranberries. Or, use chopped almonds or pistachios in place of walnuts. Have you ever made cinnamon rolls at home? Share your experience in the comments below!
