Jiffy Cinnamon Rolls

Have you ever wanted cinnamon rolls but didn't have the time to make them? Well my husband found a recipe for no-yeast cinnamon rolls that don't require raising time. They are basically made with a biscuit type dough, so they don't have the same texture as a regular cinnamon roll, but they are still super good.

Here's the step by step: Start by combining butter, brown sugar and cinnamon in  a bowl.

Place 1 teaspoon in each muffin cup. Reserve the rest for filling.

Cut butter into flour, sugar, baking powder and salt until crumbly.

Add milk and stir.

Knead a few times on floured surface. {I had a little helper when I was making these and she decided to try the dough.}

Roll out dough.

Spread filling on top.

Roll up.

Cut into 12 cinnamon rolls. {My 2 year old had fun counting them}

Place in muffin tins.

Bake and turn out onto wire rack. I placed a pan under to catch drips.

Frost while still warm.

I think they are best when eaten warm from the oven.

Try them out and let me know what you think.
