I thought I would post a recipe because it's cold out, and you know how you like to eat when it's cold out! I made these Christmas morning. The kids were tired of eating monkey bread so I whipped up something different. PW has an awesome cinnamon roll recipe but it involves yeast and rising and it just scares me. So this is a really easy alternative.
For the rolls
- 2 cans (8 Oz. Can) Prepared Buttermilk Biscuits
- ½ cups Softened Butter
- 1 Tablespoon Sprinkled Cinnamon
- ½ cups Brown Sugar
For the icing
- 1 cup Powdered Sugar
- 3 Tablespoons Heavy Cream Or Half-and-Half
- ½ teaspoons Vanilla
Arrange biscuits with sides touching, in rows on a lightly floured surface. Press edges together, then using a rolling pin, roll them out to make a nice-sized rectangle. Spread evenly with a nice layer of softened butter. Sprinkle with cinnamon, however much you like. Then sprinkle with brown sugar. (You can even add raisins or dried fruit or whatever you like, experiment!)
Roll up starting with one long end; cut into 8 (about 2 inches thick) slices. Place rolls into a lightly greased round cake pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Stir together powdered sugar, cream and vanilla. Drizzle evenly over hot rolls.
So enjoy and if you are dieting like I am for the new year because you ate too much over the holidays I sincerely apologize!
