I think everyone in the whole wide world loves a good cinnamon roll. And I am absolutely in love, as well as my whole family, with my yeast cinnamon rolls made from my homemade bread. But sometimes, we just need a quick go-to that we can whip up and treat our family with lickety-split.
This is the recipe for a quick, warm, gooey, delight we’ve all needed in our repertoires.
Introducing the no-rise cinnamon rolls.
Not from a box.
Homemade through-and-through with all its glory.
Adapted from Hannah from Food.com
2 cups flour
2 tbsp. sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
3 tbsp. butter
3/4 cup milk
4 tbsp. butter
1 cup brown sugar
3 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk
For the filling, in a small bowl combine softened butter, brown sugar and cinnamon to form a crumbly mixture.
Sprinkle 1/2 of the mixture over the bottom of a 9×9 pan.
In a large bowl mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
Cut in softened butter using a pastry cutter or butter knife.
Stir in milk to form a soft dough.
Roll out dough on a lightly floured into a rectangle about 1/4 inch thick.
Spread the remaining filling on the rolled out dough.
Roll up the rectangle, with a sharp knife slice into 18 small rolls (12 if you want them bigger).
Bake for 20-25 minutes at 400 degrees.
For glaze, combine powdered sugar and milk in a small bowl and stir until smooth.
Once rolls are finished, drizzle on glaze and serve warm.

Hey Jenny. Making these right now–thanks so much for the recipe. I just wanted to mention you might want to add a step after sprinkling half the filling in the pan. It's not clear what we're supposed to be cutting the butter in to…I'm going on the assumption that I'm mixing the dough dry ingredients to cut the butter in to 🙂 Again, thank you so much for posting–you're saving the day for me and my 5 year old 🙂

Hi Scarlet! Thanks for telling me, I had left out some vital info. 🙂 Fixed!
Can I prep these in advance?
I'd love to have them for Sunday breakfast but know there won't be time to do all the prep work.

Hello! Sorry I didn't back sooner… you can prep these and even bake them off…I have a tip here https://www.plannerperfectmeals.com/2014/08/snack-size-cinnamon-rolls.html for that, or you can prep up to the point of baking, cover with foil and in the morning bake-off. That should work! Let me know what you tried!
