Tips for Making These Pinwheel Roll Ups

  • If you cannot find the crescent dough sheet, grab a tube of crescent rolls and squish those perforated lines together. I’ve used both and they both work just fine (and taste amazing).
  • For little tastes, lighten the cinnamon used in the icing or omit it all together.
  • To make white icing, use powdered sugar, milk, and add a tiny splash of vanilla extract.
  • For thicker rolls, roll the sheet along the short edge.
