Cinnamon Roll Biscuits

I love to make cinnamon rolls for breakfast but I don't make them very often as they do require a bit of planning ahead on my part and well, mornings can be quite hectic around here. I have a favorite recipe that I use and every so often I'll try to make up a double batch to keep in the freezer for when we're craving a fresh baked cinnamon roll.

Well now we can enjoy the taste of cinnamon rolls a little more often, but with using either a homemade baking mix or Bisquick. I first seen this recipe over on Money Saving Mom's blog.  While I haven't tried making my own homemade baking mix just yet I did have some Bisquick on hand to try these with.

These were really easy to make, I had them mixed and in the oven within 15 minutes. Everyone enjoyed them, they're filled with yummy brown sugar and cinnamon filling and topped with a simple powdered sugar glaze. Of course they had a biscuit texture and flavor but overall I think we'll be enjoying this quick and easy breakfast treat a little more often. Next time though, I think I'll try making up my own batch of this homemade baking mix and see how they turn out.

Cinnamon Roll Biscuits

4 1/2 c Bisquick
1 1/3 c milk
3 tbsp butter, softened
1/3 c brown sugar
2 tbsp cinnamon

1-2 c powdered sugar
2 tbsp milk

In a large bowl mix Bisquick and milk together, dough will be sticky. Turn dough onto a well floured surface and knead about 8 times. Roll dough out into a rectangle. Spread softened butter over dough and sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon on top. Roll dough up and cut into rolls, I got a good 15 out of mine. Place into a greased baking pan and bake at 350 for 15-20 mins.

Remove from oven and let cool for a few mins. Meanwhile combine powdered sugar and milk to make glaze. Drizzle over warm biscuits and serve. These are best eaten while warm.
