Cinnamon Biscuit Rolls

READY IN: 55mins




  • 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!
