FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Can I use any other type of cinnamon roll?

This recipe works best with Grand’s and that is the original recipe. I have not tried it with any other brand of cinnamon rolls. If you can find a similar size large cinnamon roll like Grand’s then it should be safe to use those.

Do I have to make the icing?

This is a nice jazzed up icing. If you do not want to make your own you can use the icing that comes with the cinnamon rolls themselves.

Is there anything I can add to these rolls?

For a slightly different texture and flavor you can add chopped pecans or walnuts to the brown sugar mixture before baking.

Can I use a different flavor of cinnamon roll?

Yes, you can use any flavor of the Grand’s Cinnamon Rolls that you’d like. Sometimes you can find Blueberry or Strawberry flavors. Just make sure that you are using 2 (5 count) cans.

Do I have to cover my rolls while baking?

Yes, this is an important step. This helps the rolls bake evenly and not get too brown on top before they are done.

How do I store leftovers?

You can store these covered in the pan at room temperature where they will keep for 1-2 days or in the refrigerator for up to 3-5 days.

Note: You don’t have to make the additional icing. You could just only using the icing from the canned cinnamon rolls. However, we find that icing just isn’t enough so added this extra icing to the recipe.
