What is Pillsbury cinnamon roll dough?

Pillsbury cinnamon roll dough is prepackaged sweet dough that comes in a can. It is ready to be shaped or divided into rolls or buns and baked.

The cinnamon roll dough comes in two varieties – Grands cinnamon buns or cinnamon rolls. Be sure to get the right ones for your purposes!

What are the directions for use?

Heat the oven to 375 degrees F and place the rolls onto a non stick pan or baking dish. Bake for about 15 minutes or until the cinnamon buns begin to turn golden on top. Spread frosting or icing over the rolls before serving.

Making homemade cinnamon buns has never been easier!

We have recently discovered that making cinnamon buns in the air fryer is super fun too! Air fryer recipes always make things quick and easy.

How to Make Air Fryer Cinnamon Rolls:


  • 8 count can original Pillsbury refrigerated cinnamon rolls
  • 1 tub frosting (that comes with the rolls)


1. Preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees fahrenheit.

2. Line the basket with parchment paper and use non stick cooking spray to coat the interior.

3. Pop open the can of cinnamon rolls.

4. Place the cinnamon roll dough into the air fryer basket, cinnamon side down.

5. Cook for 6 minutes or until golden brown on top.

6. Remove the basket from the air fryer and slather the rolls with frosting.

7. Using the parchment paper, lift the rolls from the basket and serve warm.

Tips and tricks:

  • Allow rolls to come to room temperature before storing leftover cinnamon rolls in an airtight container.
  • Be sure to watch your cook time as different brands of bake ware may need a longer cooking time.
  • Top homemade cinnamon rolls with cream cheese frosting for a more decadent flavor.
  • When shopping at your local grocery store look for the authentic Pillsbury brand cinnamon rolls. The store brand canned cinnamon rolls will do but in our experience they are just not the same as Pillsbury sweet rolls.
  • For fresh cinnamon rolls every day, have a can of Pillsbury Grands cinnamon rolls in the refrigerator at all times! We always have a tube of cinnamon rolls ready for baking Christmas morning.
  • Try experimenting with this pre-made dough in your Ninja Foodie, a cake pan, muffin tin or air fryer oven.
