Cinnamon Rolls in a Snap

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!

    amazing recipe would absolutely recommend. The only thing is the cook time for me was a lot shorter so just keep an eye on them because they can easily overcook if left unattended for the full time. Im not a huge fan of the icing either but it’s a great alternative if you don’t have corn syrup and much rather stick to something simple. Makes an amazing snack for the whole family to enjoy!

    I have already made this recipe twice for my family and we love it! My boys are young so I halved the recipe to fit our needs and that worked great.

    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.

    I loved how light and fluffy these rolls are, and the recipe is fast and easy. I also like how you can adjust the amount of butter that goes into them.
