Biscuit Mix Rolls (Cinnamon OR Pizza)


With Valentines coming up I borrowed an idea from my daughter-in-law to shape the rolls like hearts. You can use the same recipe to roll them up like regular cinnamon buns. Click here for the large biscuit mix recipe.

CINNAMON HEART ROLLS

Ingredients:
  • 3 cups biscuit mix
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 Tbsp soft butter for spreading
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon for spreading
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar mixed with 1 1/2 Tbsp milk for drizzle
Method:
  1. In medium size bowl, using a fork, stir milk into 3 cups mix. Stir until dry ingredient are well incorporated.
  2. Remove dough onto flour dusted surface
  3. Dust with flour, press gently and shape into rectangle. Then roll out to 9 X 14 inches.
  4. Spread with butter and sugar/cinnamon mix
  5. Mark centre and roll up tightly from both long sides toward the centre. Slice and put on parchment paper lined pans. Shape by squeezing the tip of the heart shape. 
  6. Bake at 425 F for 15 minutes or until light golden in color.
  7. Mix icing sugar in measuring cup, starting with one Tbsp milk and adding a few more drops as needed. Drizzle over cooled rolls.

  2. Remove dough onto flour dusted surface

  4. Spread with pizza sauce, cheese, bacon bits and sprinkle with dried basil

  3. Anneliese, I was wondering how you cut your slices that they hold their shape and look so nice? Do you use thread or floss? The rolls look very delicious.

    1. Elaine, a serrated knife - a good bread knife - is what I find works well. Slice the rolls like you would slice bread,

    1. I'm sorry . . . not sure in lieu of what? ... for the mix itself it is best to use shortening, hard margarine or butter.
      Oil would not give it the same texture. As for spreading on along with the cinnamon sugar ...
      I don't see why you could not try it.

    2. Coconut oil is naturally solid at room temperature and I've seen it used in a pie pastry recipe. Considering all the good things being said about coconut oil and memory, it would certainly be worth trying it out.
