Just as good as regular cinnamon rolls, but without the hassle of creating a yeast dough first! Uses a mouthwatering homemade biscuit dough as your cinnamon roll base. There's lots of gooey filling, and a scrumptious vanilla glaze for on top. This is now one of my favorite recipes! I'm going to make it the next time I have friends over. I can't wait to hear what some other Zaar'ers think! I found a recipe similar to this one at allrecipes.com, but I've changed it. Enjoy a delicious treat!

these are so yummy! i had to add almost 1/2 cup more flour as the dough was very sticky and i didn't make the glaze because it would have been too sweet for my taste. they were easy and fast and we gobbled them up over coffee with friends, this is definately a new family favourite.

Directions See How It's Made
- Generously grease an 8x11 or 9x13 inch baking pan with butter.
- Cream 1/3 cup butter or margarine with the brown sugar and cinnamon.
- In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
- Cut in 1/4 cup butter or margarine until crumbly.
- Make a well in center of dry ingredients.
- Add cold milk all at once.
- Stir to form a soft dough.
- Turn dough out onto a lightly floured board.
- Knead 8 times- do NOT overknead!
- (This will make the biscuit dough tough.) Roll dough into rectangle about 12 inches long and 6 inches wide.
- Spread the cinnamon, sugar and butter mixture over the entire surface of the dough.
- Roll up as you would a jelly roll.
- Mark, and then cut 12 slices with a serrated knife.
- Place in greased pan.
- Rolls will touch slightly.
- Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and bubbling.
- Turn out onto a wire rack to cool.
- (Line underneath the rack with paper towels to catch the gooey drippings).
- Combine the confectioners' sugar with the vanilla, and then add enough milk to make a thin glaze.
- Drizzle this over the rolls while still warm.
- Eat with a cup of tea or coffee and expect rave reviews from friends and family!
