Hi, this recipe has been in my recipe box sinceit appeared in the Pillsbury Bake-Off booklet. I love it and it is so easy. The only thing I changed is the icing. I use a tablespoon or to of frozen FIVE-ALIVE to make a pungent orange icing. Oh yes, don't forget a tab or two of butter.

Well the triangles came apart and I was not awake enough yet to press them all together again, so I mixed the filling ingredients together (no raisins), spread a spoonful on each triangle, rolled loosely and baked as per package directions. Some of the filling leaked but not enough to worry about. Made the glaze with soy milk and the kids were fighting over them!

Easy-Peasy! I love this recipe! My last time making these I pinched all the seams and made one big log,then cut them into seperate pinwheels. I laid them so they were not quite touching and brushed a little melted butter atop before baking. Baking time is a little tricky so stay on top of them! I baked them at 350 for 13/14 minutes,then turned the oven off and let them sit for another 2/3 minutes.I made a vanilla cream cheese frosting....thick! Ah geez...decadent!
Oh,I also used more filling and it made a bit of a caramel base!

Doubled the cinnamon and sugar, blended with the butter, spread onto four rectangle sections (used crescent). Added vanilla to the icing (1 tsp.). Cooked close together, in 9" cake pan. Slightly gooey, but good. Might try baking apart next time.

I followed the tip of mixing butter/cinnamon/sugar together & plumped the raisins before adding them in. I used the seamless sheet to make 4 rolls & sliced the rolls into 4 buns each, rather than 5. I found 375 for 17 minutes too long & will adjust in future. I also froze 2 rolls for future use since I cook for 2. I also added a little vanilla to frosting. Overall good taste & very convenient, but should be watched while baking.

Watch these carefully as they bake; I found 17 minutes at 375 too long. Also, since I only cook for 2 & used the seamless sheet, I froze two of the four rolls for future slicing & use.

These are VERY tasty ! I did make extra butter/cinn/sugar mixture (almost double I would say) and as another reviewer mentioned, mixing the butter, sugar & cinn together is the way to go ! I add flaked coconut to some- delish ! Next time I may top w/cream cheese frosting.....:)

These were great! Very easy and a big hit. I added a bit of vanilla extract to the glaze. I will be making these again for sure!

Easy, ery tasty and the aroma while they're baking! Have made these several times and they're always a winner. After the first batch, I prefer to cut each rectangle 4x.

Here's a shortcut I learned from another recipe. Put the sugar, butter (cut in slices), and cinnamon in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for a few seconds until butter is soft. If it melts completely, put in the fridge for a few minutes. It should be the consistency of frosting. Drop a teaspoonful of the mixture on each of the four rectangles and spread. I also cut back a bit on the cinnamon and added a 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg. Did the same with the raisins and added one Tablespoon of chopped walnuts.
