This is a wonderful treat for the kids on a winter morning when you want cinnamon rolls but don't want to take the time to make them with yeast dough. Very tasty and tender. I didn't try them with the milk but I sure like them plain. I got this recipe from Grandma's Kitchen treasured desserts cards. I hope you like them as much as my family does.

I got this recipe card in the mail a few years ago and have tried this recipe several times. Everyone in my house loves it! A few changes I make are to use skim milk in place of buttermilk and to use only 1/4 c butter, 1/3 c sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Those measurements are more than ample!!! Sometimes I also top mine with a simple powdered sugar glaze: 1/2 c powdered sugar and 2-3 teaspoons milk. Just drizzle on top and they are wonderful! My boys just said, "Momma, always make these again!"

I Love this recipe! My mom gave the the recipe card several years ago. I make these almost everytime we have company. It is a special treat for our guests to wake up to the yummy smell of homemade cinnamon rolls. I love the biscuit texture too. So after making these a few times I have made some changes. Instead of buttermilk I use a milk/ lemon juice mixture. (Take 1 Cup of Milk and add 1 Tbs of Lemon Juice to it. Let it sit aside for a few minutes and you are good to go.) I only use 3/4 Cup of it like the recipe calls for. I also make my own cinnamon/sugar mixture as I feel like there isn't enough cinnamon in the original recipe. Sorry I just "eyeball it". I use a little less butter too. No milk over ours either- I use a powdered sugar glaze instead (powdered sugar, a little milk and a splash of vanilla extract)-sorry I don't have the measurements, again I just "eyeball it". Learned that eyeball trick from my mom, it seems to work. :)

I didn't particularly care for these and neither did my children. My husband, however, gobbled them up. Since I made them for him (he's a cinnamon roll freak) I'm going to give this 4 stars. I found the dough to be a little stick and difficult to work with. Rolling it up was a bit of a chore. However, for a quick cinnamon roll, that doesn't require time for rising, this recipe comes in handy.
