    Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 8 regular-size muffin cups with cooking spray.
  • 2
    Separate dough into 8 rolls. Using sharp knife, carefully cut 1 roll horizontally into 3 rounds. Arrange rounds overlapping sides slightly. Starting at 1 end, roll up; press end lightly to seal edge. Place in muffin cup; press down gently. Use fingers to slightly open up “flower” end so it's not closed like a bud. Repeat with remaining rolls.
  • 3
    Bake 8 to 12 minutes or until browned. Remove from muffin cups; cool slightly. Serve rolls with icing or drizzle icing over rolls. Serve warm.
