  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. In a food processor, process cinnamon chips until coarsely ground. Remove 1/2 of the chips, and continue to process the remaining chips until finely ground.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together baking mixes, 1 cup coarsely ground cinnamon chips, and raisins. Make a well in center, add buttermilk, and stir just until dough comes together.
  4. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured, flat surface. Knead gently for 1 minute. Flatten dough to a 8x10 inch rectangle. Brush with melted butter, and sprinkle with finely ground cinnamon chips. Starting from one long side, roll up the dough. Pinch seams and ends to seal. Slice roll crosswise into 8 equal slices, and arrange in a 9x13 ungreased baking pan.
  5. Bake 12 minutes, until lightly golden. In a separate bowl, stir confectioners' sugar, 1 tablespoon melted butter, and water until smooth. Drizzle glaze over hot biscuits.

This was pretty good--reminds me of the Pillsbury cinnamon rolls that come in the round aluminum pan--but better. I just used regular Bisquick for both baking mixes. I didn't have any buttermilk, so I used the old trick of making sour milk from milk and lemon juice. Everything turned out fine, but I didn't need all of the milk. Quick and easy if you want something "cinnamony". It's definitely biscuits, though, so if you're looking for actual cinnamon rolls, this probably won't fix the craving! Pretty tasty!

Didn't/don't have the whole wheat baking mix, so used all regular. Had refrigerated cinnamon chips so could not get a fine grind. No worries...the menfolk were happy campers. One said it was one of the best cinnamon rolls he'd ever had. Used the glaze on 1/2 of them and some pre-made cream cheese frosting on other 1/2. Yummilicous!!! Will make again!!
