Recipe by Elizabeth in The South
a simple sweet biscuit reminiscent of cinnamon rolls. easy to make with ingreadients i all ready have! You as well, most likely. Along with cinnamon add ground cardamon, this gives it a swedish twist making it perfect with coffee. Instead of milk drizzled at the end try a simple sugar glaze made with powder sugar and milk. hope you like it, so let me know how it works out. enjoy! recipe from 'Grandma's Kitchen: Treasured Family Recipes' treasured desserts card 26.

Family loved these, and they were pretty easy to make (I always have trouble rolling things up). I omitted the cardamom and increased the cinnamon to 1 Tablespoon because I know we love cinnamon! One reason I tried this recipe is that it made a small batch; however, I did get 8 out of it. Used a powdered sugar glaze lightly. Very likely to make again. Thanks for posting.
