{Kitchen Tip} Cinnamon Rolls from Plain Biscuits

I told you yesterday about my surprise party and sudden house guests. I was so excited to have them since I don’t get to see my sister, niece, and nephew very often. It’s always so fun when cousins get together. They got to have a sleep over and to our surprise, they actually went to bed before midnight.

In the morning, I wanted to make up some breakfast for everyone but I wasn’t sure if cocoa pebbles would fit the bill. So I scoured my refrigerated and found some biscuits that I had gotten for cheap when they were on sale. You know those Pillsbury ones go on sale for $1 all the time and you can get them even cheaper with coupons. I assessed my bacon and egg situation and alas, there just wasn’t enough to make a real breakfast.

I checked out Google and adapted this recipe from Healthy and Homemade’s idea for cinnamon rolls made out of regular biscuits. I had all of the ingredients and didn’t have to make up any special dough which really cut down on the time.

They were so easy and the perfect breakfast in a pinch. We don’t eat cinnamon rolls too often around here so we don’t usually have them in the refrigerator. But for times like this when you need a last minute breakfast, this recipe is perfect.

  • For the Cinnamon Rolls
  • 7.5 oz Can of Biscuits
  • 2 Tbsp Butter, Melted (I used Blue Bonnet Light)
  • 2 Tbsp Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Cinnamon
  • Sliced Almonds for Topping
  • For the Glaze
  • 1/2 c. Powdered Sugar
  • 1 and 1/2 Tbsp Skim Milk
  • 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 Tsp Creamy Peanut Butter
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together the cinnamon and sugar and place on a plate.
  2. Open dough and roll out each biscuit into a long cylinder. Dip into butter and then into cinnamon sugar. Gently roll into a pinwheel and place in a greased baking dish.
  3. Follow the same steps until you have finished with all biscuits.
  4. If you have leftover butter and sugar, mix together and pour over the top of the cinnamon rolls.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile combine glaze ingredients in a small bowl and brush over cinnamon rolls when they are done.

You may be wondering about that little bit of peanut butter that made it’s way into the glaze ingredients. I added this for depth of flavor and it was very subtle but yummy. My husband didn’t even notice it until I pointed it out, but he really liked it.
