  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Add milk all at once to dry ingredients and stir with a fork until a soft dough is formed. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface and knead gently 8 to 10 times. Roll out to a 12 inch square.
  3. Gently spread butter over dough. Combine brown sugar, cinnamon and raisins. Sprinkle evenly on top of dough. Roll up dough lightly like a jelly-roll. Seal edge. Cut into twelve 1 inch thick pieces. Place in prepared muffin tins.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 14 to 18 minutes, until golden. Remove from heat immediately. Serve warm.

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 al...

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 ...

So good! Followed the advice of another reviewer and added a bit of sugar to the dough as well, and used about half the amount of milk stated. Used milk to seal the edges. The texture is wonderf...

First I divided the recipe in half. Didn't need 12 servings - though I'm sure we could have easily eaten more. I made a few slight changes. I added a teaspoon of white granulated sugar to the do...
