If you’re looking for a simple cinnamon rolls recipe that requires no yeast, zero rising time, then DING DING DING—you’ve found a winner! These Cinnamon Roll Biscuits are all the yumminess of homemade cinnamon rolls, but use no yeast and no rising time. You’re going to love them!
I shared this recipe almost 10 years ago and knew it needed to be back in the spotlight with new pictures and instructions.
This was a recipe that I should have posted the second I started this blog, but I waited almost two years before I finally got around to sharing it. I held out on you peeps and it was so wrong of me (lol)! The good news is I finally did share it, but like I said, it was almost 10 years ago and I’m sure many of you don’t even know this recipe exists here on my site.
Here is the story behind these beauties. Years ago I received a package of recipe cards in the mail. You know, the kind where a company sends you a sample of their recipe cards in hopes you join their “recipe card” club, but even if you don’t the cards they send you are yours to keep.
I didn’t join their club, but I kept the recipe cards they sent me and these biscuits happened to be one of them. I have now been making these for years and we never get tired of them.
I absolutely love/adore/crave cinnamon rolls but I don’t always have the time or patience to make them. Because let’s be honest, when you’re craving a warm, gooey, loaded-with-frosting homemade cinnamon roll, you usually want it right then and there, not in three or four hours.
That is where these cinnamon roll biscuits come in really handy. They are incredibly quick and simple to make and taste absolutely fabulous!
No yeast. No rising.
Just a one and done recipe that you’re going to fall in love with.
They are simple and straight forward to make.
The dough will be shaggy and rough looking, that’s what you want.
Dump it onto a floured surface and knead it a few times and then roll/press it into a rectangle. Spread the butter on top and then sprinkle the cinnamon & sugar on (yes, forgot to snap a picture of that step).
Put them in your prepared pan and let them bake for about 20 minutes at 400 degree.
They will come out of the oven looking absolutely beautiful. . . with or without the frosting!
I’m not exaggerating when I tell you I could eat the entire pan. Cinnamon rolls are my weakness and these are too because they are just as good.
IMPORTANT TIP ABOUT MEASURING THE FLOUR:
I will be honest, 90% of the time when I am baking, I just scoop my flour and give the measuring cup little shake. With that being said, I do measure the “correct” way if a recipe specifically says to For this recipe please measure your flour correctly! Fluff up the flour first and then spoon it into your measure cup and then scrape a knife across the top of the measure cup to level the flour.
Here is what you will need:
- baking powder
- baking soda
- vegetable oil
The original recipe didn’t call for frosting, but I of course had to add it. Feel free to leave it off, but I highly suggest you don’t!
Remember, the next time you are craving cinnamon rolls but don’t have the time to make them, these cinnamon roll biscuits will absolutely satisfy that craving. These are best served warm, so if you have any leftover, pop one in the microwave for about 15 seconds.
Make these and thank me later.Print
