Homemade Cinnamon Rolls

Yesterday I thought I would mix things up some. I had some extra cream cheese icing from making the carrot cake and I wanted to use it on a recipe instead of letting the kids eat it all up. Instead of making pancakes our usual Sunday breakfast I made some cinnamon rolls.

I made up a simple biscuit dough.

2 cups all purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup milk

Mix dry ingredients together. Cut in butter with a pastry blender. Then add milk and stir with a fork until dough forms.

Put dough on floured work surface. I rolled the dough out pretty thin in a rectangle shape. I then sprinkled lots of brown sugar and cinnamon on the dough.

I then used a pizza cutter and cut the dough into long strips. I then rolled the strips up and placed on cookie sheet.

I baked for about 12 minutes on 425.

Yum. I love cream cheese frosting!

It never would have occurred to me to make cinnamon rolls with biscuit dough. It sounds good and less time consuming than a yeast dough.

yummy indeed another quick recipe for cinnamon rolls is bisquick recipe according to package directions. I have used the same idea of cinnamon and sugar on the rolled out dough. You can add raisins too. I love the cream cheese frosting idea. I usually dont add a topping since the goo from inside the rolls sneaks out. Yummy yummy in the tummy
