I got this recipe from my mom. I like to refrigerate the dough overnight to quickly bake first thing in the morning. -Heather Maldaner Rolling Hills, Alberta


  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter
  • 7 to 8 tablespoons 2% milk
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons butter, softened, divided
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in cold butter until crumbly. Stir in milk, a tablespoon at a time, and toss with a fork until mixture forms a ball. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface; roll into a 7-in. square. Spread with 2 tablespoons softened butter.
  2. Combine the brown sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over butter. Roll up jelly-roll style. Cut into 6 even slices. Place cut side up in greased muffin cups. Bake at 400° for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Melt remaining butter; brush over rolls. Serve warm.
