Cinnamon Rolls can make a grown man cry! With that said make these for the favorite man in your life. You’ll be queen for the day or maybe for the week. This can be a no-brainer if you can make basic biscuit dough. If you’ve never made biscuits before just cut yourself a little slack and practice, practice, practice!
My students love this lab! I’m not such a fan. I’m more of a savory person, but really can go for one of these with a good cup of coffee. So get in the kitchen and whip some of these mouth-watering cinnamon rolls up for someone special.
Last spring GI Joe and I were in Halifax on a very cold, blustery day and walked into a very busy coffee shop Cabin Coffee to be exact. Guess what we found? Cinnamon rolls going like hot cake made with biscuit dough not the usual yeast dough. They were cooked in a huge muffin pan and as soon as they came out of the oven they were flying out the door. I’ve never seen anything like it. So here you go – my Cinnamon Rolls in a Muffin Tin. Yes, this is something else that you can enjoy with your family in this coming week of frigid temperatures.
One of the last demonstrations that I did for my classes this year was homemade pizza dough. It is really easy to make and my students were in awe! I use my Kitchen Aid mixer with the dough hook, but the dough can be made in a food processor or using the dough cycle on a bread machine. All three work well. You can also make the dough by hand, but it will take a little more work.
Biscuit making always floods my mind with childhood memories of watching my mother put together a beautiful pan of biscuits. They were perfectly rolled out with her hands into small mounds of fluffy white dough that when baked would just seem to melt in your mouth. When I was about 13 I tried my best to make them the same way, but mine were anything but fluffy. You could best describe them as rock hard!

If you’re in a hurry making Cinnamon Rolls from biscuit dough is the way to go. It is quick to put together and taste so good. This group of students had no big problems putting these things together. A couple of groups still need to work of kneading the dough. They haven’t quite got the knack of how much to handle it to make the end product light and fluffy. But, I really can’t complain because they were all better than usual. I had none that could break out windows.
Cinnamon rolls cooking in the oven are just plain good. The cinnamon and sugar melting together sends out an aroma that turns up the senses a notch and makes the mouth water. But, if you’re like me and short on time cinnamon rolls made with yeast dough are not always an option.
Here is an alternative to the timely recipe that you can throw together in a matter of minutes. They are delicious, too.
