Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 3 cups water, for steaming
  • Nonstick cooking spray


  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 3 tubes (8 ounces each) crescent sheet dough
  • 1 stick (4 ounces) butter, melted


  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup whole milk


  • Small Bowl
  • Large Bowl
  • Whisk
  • Step 1

    Pour the 3 cups of water into the pot. Spray the bottom of the Ninja Multi-Purpose Pan (or 8″ round baking pan) with cooking spray, avoiding the sides.

  • Step 2

    Combine the brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.

  • Step 3

    Lay one sheet of crescent dough on a flat, clean work surface. Generously brush the dough with melted butter, then sprinkle with 3 tablespoons of the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Roll the dough into a log and slice into 8 equal pieces.

  • Step 4

    Place the pieces close together, cut side up, in the prepared pan.

  • Step 5

    Repeat steps 3 and 4 with the remaining crescent dough, melted butter, and cinnamon-sugar mixture.

  • Step 6

    Place the pan on the bottom layer of the Deluxe Reversible Rack in the lower position, then place the rack in the pot. Close the lid and move slider to STEAMCRISP.

  • Step 7

    Select STEAM & BAKE, set temperature to 325°F, and set time to 20 minutes. Press START/STOP to begin cooking (PrE will display for approx. 20 minutes as the unit steams, then the timer will start counting down).

  • Step 8

    While the cinnamon buns are cooking, add the glaze ingredients to a large bowl and whisk until well combined.

  • Step 9

    When cooking is complete, remove the rack with the pan and let cool for at least 5 minutes.

  • Step 10

    Drizzle the glaze over the cinnamon buns, then serve them warm.
