Variations of this Recipe
Color the frosting. If you do not want to use sprinkles you can use food coloring and make the white cinnamon roll frosting red.
Use frosting to decorate. You can use black frosting to make the Santa belt.
Santa Belt. I like using black licorice and starbursts, but you can also use yellow laffy taffy, air heads, yellow M&Ms, or yellow skittles.
Santa’s Buttons. I used Chocolate chips but you can also use brown M&Ms, or brown Reece’s pieces.
How do you know when Pillsbury cinnamon rolls are done?
Pillsbury cinnamon rolls are done when the tops are golden brown. Depending on your oven the cook time will vary from 13-17 minutes.
How do you keep Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls from burning?
I find that they cook best when they are on the middle rack in the oven.
Do Refridgerator cinnamon rolls need to touch when baking?
When you put the cinnamon rolls into the baking pan before baking they should not be touching. They will bake and expand and touch when they are done baking.
What type of pan is best for making cinnamon rolls?
Pillsbury cinnamon rolls bake best in a round metal 9 inch cake pan. If you do not have a round pan you can use a glass or metal rectangular pan.
How long do these cinnamon rolls last?
Frosted cinnamon rolls will keep in an airtight container on the counter for 1-2 days.
How to store leftovers
To store leftovers put them in an air tight container. If they are frosted then you will want to put them in a single layer so the top decorations do not get messed up.
