Hurry Up Cinnamon Rolls

This morning it's totally cold and icky outside. School is canceled it's so cold. The kids and I wanted something that would warm our hearts AND our bellies this morning. So, I made cinnamon rolls, but these aren't your normal take all day to make and rise cinnamon rolls! They bake up in a hurry since there is no yeast! I converted the recipe to use some wheat flour since I had it, but you could skip that and use all ap flour. Not really diet friendly, but completely yummy!

1 1/2 cups ap flour

1/2 cup whole wheat flour

2 Tbsp. sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/4 cup cold butter


Preheat oven to 375. Blend these ingredients together until crumbly, make well in center and add
1 cup cold milk. Mix dough, turn out of floured space and knead about 8-10 times.

Roll into 12" long recatangle about 1/3 inch thick.


Filling:

1/3 cup butter, softened or even half melted will work
1 cup packed brown sugar
3 tsp. cinnamon
1/3 cup raisins or currants if desired. (I don't add these)

Mix together first 3 ingredients, place 1 tsp. of filling in bottom of each of the 12 well sprayed or greased muffin tins.

Spread the remaining filling on the recangle of dough and roll as a jelly roll. Mark, then cut roll into 12 even rolls and place cut side down in the muffin tins. Bake for 15-20 min.

Top with powdered sugar or cream cheese frosting. Enjoy!


These are more like a biscuit than a yeast roll, but they are soooooooooooooo good!!
