Cinnamon Rolls in a Snap Recipe

A friend called one morning to see if I wanted company for coffee. I was going to make biscuits for breakfast but wanted something fancier to share. So I quickly turned those biscuits into hot cinnamon rolls. Was my friend impressed when she arrived to the sweet aroma!

"They were "okay"...this is what my husband said. I did not like the tasted too much like a biscuit and the dough was not easy to handle. They were very easy to make, but I think I will set aside the time the next time I make sweet rolls."

"Were "okay"..

But I definitely like the texture of yeast cinnamon rolls better. The texture was to much like quick bread. Were very easy to make though!"
