Butter Rolls


  • 1 Can Crescent Roll Dough 8 ounces
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine softened
  • 1/8 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Milk Sauce

  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • Preheat oven to 350. Roll out crescent roll dough onto greased or floured surface. Press seams together.
  • Spread softened butter over dough, leaving 1/2 inch space at edges on all sides. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Roll up longways and squeeze lightly with hands to seal.
  • Cut into 10-12 slices.
  • Placed slices in greased 8 inch round pan.
  • Place milk and vanilla in measuring cup and heat in microwave until very warm. Stir in sugar until dissolved. Pour over rolls.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until golden brown on top. Once removed from oven, let sit for 5-10 minutes before serving.
  • Serve warm and enjoy!

Note: There will be more sauce than is pictured here because this photo was taken after a few were removed. Butter Rolls will be dumpling like in texture on the bottom and flaky on the top. Spoon additional sauce over rolls before serving.
