My kids are growing up on Pillsbury cinnamon rolls…who am I kidding….my husband and I used to eat a whole tube every Saturday morning when we were first married :). As convenient…and yummy..as the ones from the grocery are, I’ve always wanted to try and make my own…but waiting for them to rise when I have 3 hungry kids and a husband isn’t an ideal way of spending my Saturday morning. I’ve tried several recipes, and have finally landed on this one-a compilation of the few I’ve tried. I added it to my short batch cooking run this weekend, and I doubled the recipe to freeze. I did freeze the rolls unbaked…I’m planning on pulling them out to defrost the night before I want to make them. I’ll let you know how it goes.
2 c flour
3 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/4 t baking soda
4 T butter, softened
1 c milk
1/2 c brown sugar
1-2 t cinnamon
1. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda.. Cut in the softened butter with a pastry cutter or fork.
2. Add the milk until the dough is slightly sticky.
3. Dump onto a floured surface and roll flat.
4. Spray with butter. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Roll up like a jelly roll.
5. Slice into 10 slices. Place evenly in a 9×13 (they’ll “grow” together when you bake them). At this point, you can line them up on a baking sheet and freeze them. Then, put them in a ziploc or storage container in the freezer. You can pull out a few at a time to bake)
6. Bake at 375, 20-25 minutes.
Icing: (I mix this up while they’re baking…then put any leftover in the fridge)
1 T softened butter
1 T softened cream cheese
1 c powdered sugar
1-2 T milk
