Easy Christmas Day Cinnamon Roll Bake

I knew I wanted to do a Cinnamon Roll based dish for Christmas Day. I originally planned to do it for breakfast but I ended up making a ton of Biscuits and Gravy so I made this for dinner instead. It was sooooo good. So good. So so good. I used cans of cinnamon rolls because I didn’t have time to make them from scratch but it turned out so delicious that I doubt I will make the rolls from scratch the next time I make this. Everyone in my house loved it. They ate the entire pan in about 10 minutes!

Cinnamon Roll Bake:

3 tsp vanilla extract

2 cups powdered sugar
2 Tbsp half and half
1 Tbsp milk
2 Tbsp pure maple syrup

1. In large bowl, melt the butter with the sugar in microwave.

This is just melt in your mouth good, y’all. It was moist and had the perfect amount of icing that was not too sweet but just sweet enough. I cannot wait to make this again!
