Amazing Cinnamon Rolls

I found this recipe for Cinnamon Sticky Rolls on a blog called Dinner with Julie.

They are pretty easy to make - and I've never made anything like this before. One afterschool afternoon, the two little ones scrambled and played, while Yasmin and I threw this together. Twenty minutes later, our house smelled like a bakery. These were simply, AMAZING. Next time we have a brunch, I'll throw this in the oven. We enjoyed them for several days after, but nothing came close to eating them out of the oven.

Here's Julie's recipe.

Cinnamon Sticky Biscuits

Stickiness:
2 Tbsp. butter
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 Tbsp. honey or corn syrup

Biscuits:
2 cups flour
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1 Tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup canola oil


Filling:
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup raisins and/or chopped pecans (optional)
Put the butter, brown sugar and honey into an 8”x8” pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray, put it in the oven and turn it on to 350°F.


In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Add the milk and canola oil and stir by hand just until you have a soft dough. Do not overmix!

On a lightly floured surface, pat or roll the dough into a 9” x 14” rectangle. Sprinkle with brown sugar, cinnamon and raisins or nuts. Starting from a long side, roll tightly jelly-roll style into a log. Cut into 9 biscuits using dental floss or a serrated knife, and place cut side down in the pan.


Bake for 20 minutes, until golden and bubbly. Invert onto a platter while still warm.
Makes 9 sticky biscuits.


Here's our before and after shots.



They won't disappoint you!
