Everyone once in a while I get a craving for a sweet, it’s so much better when you can make your own sweets!

Hubs has ALWAYS loved cinnamon rolls, the refrigerated canned dough variety. I just knew they could be better from my own kitchen. Of course, I can only bake while E rides along with me! Check out this fast, easy, no yeast cinnamon roll recipe, compliments of Food.com!

Dough:

  • 2 C Flr.
  • 2 TBS Sugar
  • 4 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp salt (omitted by me because I use salted butter)
  • 3 TBS butter
  • 3/4 C Milk

Filling:

  • 4 TBS Butter
  • 1 C Brown Sugar
  • 3 tsp Cinnamon

*Glaze (I used two times before but it’s never as satisfying as the frosting on bakery rolls)

  • 1/2 C Powdered sugar
  • 1/4 C Milk

*Instead, I use this frosting recipe from a friend!

  • 1/4 C Crisco (I know, I know, I cringed too)
  • 2ish C Powdered Sugar
  • 1/2 to 1 C milk
  • Dash or more of Vanilla

It’s easy to mix up in a blender! Just play with the quantities until you get the flavor and consistency you want!

Directions:

  • For Filling, in a small bowl combine softened butter, brown sugar and cinnamon to form a crumbly mixture
  • Sprinkle 1/2 of the mix over bottom of 9×9 pan (don’t worry if you don’t have that size pan, I used a 13×9)
  • For dough, in a large bowl mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • Cut in softened butter (your hands are really the best tools)
  • Stir in milk to form a soft dough
  • Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle about 1/4 in. thick
  • Spread the remaining filling on the rolled out dough
  • Roll up the rectangle, with a sharp knife slice into 18 small rolls, 12 if you want bigger rolls (c’mon, who doesn’t want a HUGE cinnamon roll??)
  • Bake 20-25 min. at 400 degrees (we baked ours for way less time. Keep an eye on your rolls, you do not want hard brown rolls, you want soft fluffy rolls!!!)
  • While rolls are still warm, spoon your frosting or glaze over the rolls! Serve warm!

Enjoy ya’ll! Happy Weekend!!! 🙂

  1. Love this icing! I’m with “hubs”; have always loved cinnamon rolls. That was a big treat for us when we were little if Mom made those on Sunday mornings before church. Us siblings would fight over how many we got to eat, never enough to go around. ahh good memories. Yum!
