Easy Cinnamon Rolls

1 (12 ounce) package crescent rolls

2 tablespoons butter, melted

1/3 cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

1/3 cup chopped pecans (optional)


1 1/4 cups powdered sugar

2 tablespoons milk

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare a sheet pan by lining with parchment paper. Unroll the crescent roll dough and separate into two rectangles. Brush the melted butter evenly over the two rectangles of dough. In a small bowl, mix the brown sugar and cinnamon together; sprinkle over the butter. Sprinkle chopped pecans over the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Roll each rectangle of dough up evenly, then cut into 1-inch slices. Place the slices cut side up on the prepared pan. Bake for 12 - 15 minutes or until rolls are golden brown. Cool, then drizzle with icing.

To make the icing: In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon. Stir until smooth. Drizzle over cinnamon rolls.
