The Eat Food NOT Money Cookbook

Cinnamon rolls

I made these for breakfast this morning. They’re so easy to make and so delicious to eat! I frost mine with cream cheese frosting (that recipe can be found with my coconut cupcake recipe) but you can use the glaze recipe below if you prefer them less sweet.

What you’ll need:

2 Tbl sugar
1 – 2 Tbl cinnamon

2 ½ c biscuit mix
2/3 c milk
2 Tbl sugar
2 Tbl butter, softened
¼ c raisins, optional (sometimes I use them, sometimes I don’t. I didn’t today.)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease bottom of a 13 x 9 inch pan. In a small bowl mix together 2 Tbl sugar and cinnamon and set aside. In a medium bowl, stir biscuit mix, milk and 2 Tbl sugar until dough forms. If it’s too sticky, stir in additional biscuit mix (up to ¼ c) to make it easier to handle. Turn dough onto a biscuit mix covered flat surface. Roll dough in biscuit mix to coat.

Shape into ball and knead 10 times.

Roll into a 15 x 9 inch rectangle.

Spread with butter.

Sprinkle evenly with sugar mixture and raisins if desired.

Roll up tightly beginning with 15 inch side.

Seal well by pinching edge of dough into a roll.

Cut into 1 ¼ inch slices.

Place cut side down on greased pan.

Bake 23 – 25 minutes or until golden brown.

Cool 5 minutes and remove from pan. Frost while warm. Makes about 20 rolls.


For simple glaze:

What you’ll need:

1 1/3 c powdered sugar
2 Tbl milk

Mix until smooth.

Tip: Use already made canned vanilla or cream cheese frosting for a quick, no work frosting. If it’s cold, let it warm to room temperature while the rolls are baking.

Cost:
biscuit mix – $3.00
milk – $3.99/gallon
butter – $1.75/pound
sugar – $1.99/4 lb bag
cinnamon – $1.85
raisins – $1.12/box
Total – $2.18
