packed brown sugar
These were fabulous. I added 1/2 cup of sugar to the dough mix, and only used 1/2 a cup of milk (Use butter, not shortening). I added 1/2 cup more of brown sugar to the butter and cinnamon. The outcome was to die for!!! My suggestion is to not use the melted butter, but use butter at room temp, and spread with a knife over the dough.
Tasted nice, but was nearly impossible to roll up since the dough was so sticky and stuck to the board even though I had floured it. Definitely needs less liquid... Any raisins that arent covered with dough will burn, so be sure to keep that from happening.
FABOOO snack! MY family gobbled these down before I knew it! Very tasty. My suggestion is that u DONT use the muffin liners. The cinnamon turns into a carmel like substance and its VERY hard removing them..Otherwise it was pefect!!
This recipe is great....the biscuit dough is just the type of dough I was looking for. I also did not use muffin tins....and I think next time I bake them I will add more cinnamon and use brown sugar with the white sugar to make them extra gooey!!
My husband really, really liked these. He ate 5! He saw me making them and asked me to add pecans and really that was the only added ingredient. I don't pour in all of the milk at one time when making biscuits, bread, etc... because some days you need it all and some days you don't depending on the weather. I floured my parchment paper, my hands, the rolling pin for rolling out the dough and had no problem. When rolling the dough into the roll, just use the floured parchment paper to roll and it won't be sticky. After it's rolled, you might want to place in the fridge for a few secs to make slicing easy. I didn't use the muffin tins and only cooked half of the log. I made icing by using 1 cup confectionary sugar, 1 tbsp vanilla and maybe one tablespoon of milk. (Add slowly until you get the consistancy you like.) Just drizzled it over hot rolls with a spoon and they were beautiful!
These turned out way better than I thought they would. They were tender and flaky! I added about 1/4 c sugar to the flour mixture just to make sure the dough didn't taste like a biscuit. I also baked them on a sheet rather than in a muffin tin. They turned out great and didn't last through the day. The only negative thing about them is they lose the delicate texture several hours after baking. I guess that means we'll have to eat them all right out of the oven!
Fantastic! So easy, so good. Just a word- I used parchment paper on a jelly roll pan and they get a lot BIGGER, so space them well, and use butter for a great taste and texture!!
OMG! These are absolutely delicious!! I have searched long and hard for a cinnamon roll recipe that is quick and yummy and I found it. These taste like Pillsbury cinnamon buns! I was shocked at how easy they really were. Other reviewers have mentioned a problem with the dough being sticky and the dough being too salty-I had none of these problems, I followed closely and they came out sinfully good! I added flour until it was the texture where I knew I was able to roll it easily. I would suggest to those add a little less salt next time and be patient with the dough until it is the consistency that you can work with...
This is going to become my new "Holiday Morning Cinnamon Bun" recipe. I can not tell you how much time this recipe saves compared to your standard yeast roll recipes and is just as good, if not better! Thanks a bunch-It's a definite keeper!!! =)
