Quick Cinnamon Buns with a Cinnamon Sugar Glaze
By thesavvykitchen on March 22, 2013
I had planned on taking my husband to brunch the morning of his birthday. I should have known that wouldn't happen. The night before, we got together with a bunch of his friends for dinner and stayed out well into the night. Needless to say, he was not feeling too splendid the next morning.
Thankfully I had a backup plan. I still wanted to surprise him with something special, so I whipped up these cinnamon buns. I used canned biscuits so I didn't need to worry about preparing dough and having enough time for the dough to rise. These took less than 20 minutes and were so delicious. They're soft and the cinnamon sugar glaze really enhanced the flavors of the cinnamon buns. This would be perfect for a brunch gathering or just to surprise your family with one Sunday morning. Enjoy!
Flour, for rolling out dough
1 (7.5 oz.) can refrigerated buttermilk biscuits, at room temperature
3 tbsp. butter, melted
3-4 tbsp. granulated sugar
3-4 tbsp. brown sugar
3 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tbsp. brown sugar
1/2 tbsp. granulated sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tbsp. reduced-fat milk
On a floured surface, knead biscuits into a ball. Once the dough is sticking together, use a rolling pin to roll out the dough so that it forms a rectangle (about 8"x14").
Once rolled out, spread the melted butter over the top. Sprinkle with both sugars and cinnamon. Roll up from the wide side so it resembles a long tube. Pinch the seam to secure the filling.
Cut the roll into 2-inch pieces (you should get about 7 slices altogether).
Spray a pie plate with cooking spray. Arrange the slices in the plate with the filling facing up.
Bake according to biscuit can directions.
Meanwhile, prepare the glaze. Combine the powdered sugar, both sugars, cinnamon and milk in a small bowl until a pourable consistency.
When cinnamon rolls are done, transfer to a plate and pour the glaze on top. Enjoy!
