Soaking the cinnamon rolls in heavy cream gives them a rich flavor to balance the sweetness, makes the rolls fluffier and fill out more and helps create an irresistible syrup in the pan!

When we want to go all out at the holidays adults help make Old Fashioned Cinnamon Rolls. But yeast rolls take hours as opposed to the ten minutes of prep in this semi-homemade Canned Cinnamon Rolls with Heavy Cream recipe.
We prefer to use a large can of cinnamon rolls or the Pillsbury Grands rolls, but the regular size works fine too. As the size of the rolls change the cooking time will also change.

Pillsbury Rolls Compared to the Store Brand
We prefer the cans of cinnamon rolls that are actually strips of dough rolled up with filling in each layer. Having the layers in every roll allows for even more gooey filling goodness to soak in.
We do not prefer the puck shaped rolls that are solid dough. They bake up fine, we just find the layers more delicious.
Beyond that the brand does not matter to our family, but it may to some people. We typically look for the deals and choose the best value for the money.
Step By Step Instructions
Lightly grease a 9×13″ baking dish and preheat oven to 350°F.
Arrange cinnamon rolls in a flat, single layer in the baking dish. You will probably have to work to arrange the rolls so that they all fit evenly.
Pour about one cup of heavy whipping cream in the gaps between the cinnamon rolls. Ensure that the bottom of the dish is covered in heavy cream.
In a small mixing bowl melt butter and stir in brown sugar and cinnamon. Pour this mixture over top of the rolls. Use a spatula or butter knife to spread it out as best you can. Don’t worry about making it perfect, the rolls are going to taste amazing!
Cover with foil and bake for 25 – 30 minutes until rolls are done baking. They should still be soft, but not too gooey. There should not be any raw dough remaining.
Remove foil and allow rolls to cool slightly while you mix together the icing ingredients.
In a small bowl using a wooden spoon or tablespoon stir together powdered sugar, softened butter, vanilla, packets of prepared icing from the can and 1 tablespoon of milk.
Stir well and continue to add a splash or a tablespoon of milk at a time until icing reached desired consistency. The pour the icing over top of the glorious rolls. Use a spatula or back of a spoon to spread out.
Enjoy! But don’t burn yourself giving into temptation too soon. This is the hardest part of the recipe.

Store leftover rolls in an airtight dish or bag in the refrigerator. Since there is so much moisture in the dish refrigerate to maintain freshness longer.
These rolls are best eaten warm. If stored enjoy with 2 – 3 days.
