Tasty Tuesday ~~ New Twist on Cinnamon Rolls


All this extended cold weather has given me a hankering for something good in the baking department. Hope you enjoy this new version on the standard cinnamon roll!

If you've cooked something good lately...do share. :)

Cinnamon Biscuits

5 cups baking mix (Jiffy, Bisquick, Pioneer)
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup melted margarine or butter
6 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
pinch of salt
4 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 425. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Turn onto surface dusted with baking mix. Knead until smooth. Form a large (@ 3 inch diameter) log. Slice one inch rounds and place in baking pan sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake for 16 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool slightly. (Makes 24 large biscuits that taste almost like scones.)
















Orange Buttercream Glaze

2 cups Confectioners sugar
1/4 cup melted butter (4 Tbsp)
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 Tbsp. Half & Half (or milk)
1/3 cup orange juice

Blend all ingredients together until smooth. Pour over warm cinnamon biscuits. Good any time of day or night!

Midlife Jobhunter said...

Now those look a tad too good. Probably not so good on my thighs, though.

Titus said...

Oh, they look good! Now, what's "baking mix" in English?

Angie Ledbetter said...

Michelle - That's a double recipe, so cut your grocery list in half. :)

LOL L.T.

Thanks Tere. ;) They were good. Not too sweet.

Hey Scott. How's the writing coming along?

Thank you Dylan. (I'm working on Q&A's and will send them along tonight.)

E.G. - Certainly not! Eat a dozen and share the other. *smile*

Aww, now, a couple won't hurt ya! Enjoy...life is SHORT, Midlife.

Titus - Baking mix is the prepackaged stuff you buy off the shelf if you're too lazy to start with flour and make it yourself. :D

Sounds good. Even better around a fire coming out of cast iron. With a cup of hot coffee big enough to swim in.
