Gooey Cinnamon Rolls with cream cheese icing

Gooey Cinnamon Rolls
with cream cheese icing
PER SERVING: (1 Iced Roll) 126 calories, 5g Fat, 308 mg sodium, 18.5g carbs, <.5g fiber, 6.5g sugar, 3g protein

For Dough - 
1 package Pillsbury Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls - refrigerated dough
16 sprays of "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! Spray

For Filling - 
1/4 cup dark brown sugar (not packed)
1/4 cup Splenda No Calorie Sweetener (granulated)
1/2 tablespoon light whipped butter or light buttery spread, room temperature
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt

For Icing - 
1/4 cup Cool Whip Free, thawed
3 tablespoons fat-free cream cheese, room temperature
1 tablespoons Splenda No Calorie Sweetener (granulated)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

To make filling, combine all ingredients into a medium bowl, stirring well to make sure the butter gets mixed in evenly. Set aside.

To make icing, combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mix until smooth and blended.  Place in the fridge to chill and set.

Prepare a dry surface by sprinkling it with a small amount of flour to prevent sticking.  Remove dough from package and knead into a ball.

Using a rolling pin dusted with flour, very firmly roll out dough into a thin sheet about 8 inches by 12 inches.  Spray the dough's surface evenly with butter.

Spread filling out evenly over dough, leaving a 1/2 inch border around the edges.

Starting with a long side of the dough, roll it up tightly, forming a log.  Once dough is completely rolled up pinch the long seam to seal.

Turn the log over so that the seam is facing down.  Using a very sharp knife, cut log into 8 even pieces being careful not to squish dough.

Spray a baking pan with nonstick spray and arrange pieces of dough in the pan with swirl sides facing up.  Use your hands to firmly press down on the tops of the pieces.  Pinch the side seams to seal if necessary.

Cover pan with aluminum foil.  Bake in oven for 8 minutes.  Remove foil and return pan to oven.  Bake for an additional 5 minutes, or until cinnamon rolls have risen and are slightly browned on top.  

Evenly distribute icing over cinnamon rolls and then enjoy!

I wish I could say that these were the most delicious cinnamon rolls ever, but I'm starting to understand that Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls were made for a reason.  The reason being is the disaster below...

I promise I followed every step just as it said, but DISASTER happened.
My cooking skills don't always turn out perfectly and this is proof.
From My Kitchen to Yours..
Bon Appetit until next time!
