Cinnamon Biscuit Rolls

Cinnamon Biscuit Rolls created by Michelle C.

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!

ingredients

directions

  • 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!

    How this recipe got 5 stars is unbelievable. The wet to dry ratio is way off. The dough is as wet as a drop biscuit dough. Complete waste of ingredients don't bother. Can any hack post a recipe on this site and get 5 stars, seems like it.

    I would use 1/2 the brown sugar. These are awesome,

    These are way too salty and metallic. Use 1/2 to 1/4 tsp salt (not 1 tsp salt ) and 2 tsp baking powder (not 4). Sour your milk with either 1Tsp vinegar or 1 Tsp lemon juice and let stand for 5min. Some recipes use buttermilk but the sour milk is a good substitute. Otherwise the recipe will work out

    Can you freeze these like homemade freezer biscuits?

    OMG! These are delicious! I honestly didn't think they were going to turn out. I followed another posts advice and added 1/2 cup more flour and my dough seemed too dry but they are great! I will say that I wish I would've spread the sugar filling out thinner and more evenly. Also, when making the glaze I only add 2 Tlbs of milk. Great recipe! No more store bought cinnamon rolls.
