Cooking with Kids - HOMEMADE CINNAMON ROLLS


I made up a simple biscuit dough. The kids can get all dirty helping you with this!! In fact they will want to help and make a huge mess. Which it totally okay because that can be cleaned up.

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 just roll the dough up first, like a log, then cut into individual rolls.


I baked for about 12 minutes on 425.

Fresh from the oven and iced.


I used left over cream cheese icing for these rolls.
To make a simple icing for the cinnamon rolls you can just mix together powdered sugar and milk until desired consistency and smooth. Then just drizzle over hot cinnamon rolls.
