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!

"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."

"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!"

"We liked these a lot. A bit thick, though, and you can halve the icing and still have plenty (at least for us!)."
