Cinnamon Rolls

Our friend Bree came to us asking if we had any recipes or ideas for how to make yummy cinnamon rolls without all the calories. So we gave her this recipe!! So we didn't actually make them, she did, but we tried them and they are awesome. :)

What you need...
1 package pillsbury reduced fat crescent rolls
I can't believe it's not butter! spray
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup no calorie sweetener (we love Truvia)
1/2 Tablespoon light whipped butter or light buttery spread
1 1/2 teaspoons Cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup cool whip free, thawed
3 Tablespoons fat-free cream cheese
1 Tablespoon truvia

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

FILLING: combine ingredients in a mediumm bowl. Stir well until butter is mixed evenly. (Use as much or as little cinnamon as you like, but we like a LOT. )

ICING: combine ingredients in bowl and mix until smooth and blended. place in fridge to chill and set.

DOUGH: sprinkle a dry surface with flour to prevent sticking. remove dough from package and knead into a ball.

roll out dough into a thin sheet about 8 inches by 12 inches. spray dough's surface with "I can't believe it's not butter"

Spread cinnamon filling over dough leaving a 1/2-inch border around the edges.

Roll dough up tightly starting with the long side, to form a log. Turn the log over so the seam is facing down. us a knife to cut the log into 8 even pieces, be careful not to squish/flatten the dough.

Spray baking pan with nonstick spray and arrange pieces on the pan. cover with aluminum foil. bake in the oven for 8 minutes.

Remove foil, and return pan to oven for an additional 5 minutes or until rolls have risen and are slightly brown on top.

Evenly distribute icing over rolls. TA DA! That simple. And so good.
