Sweet Dreams are Made of These

I am not great at planning ahead for breakfast. This is a problem since I am wild about cinnamon rolls. They require major prep work.  Today, I tried out a cheater version of cinnamon rolls. I used my usual recipe for biscuits, but I made a few changes. 

If you don't have a good biscuit recipe, here's my favorite. They are great as is, but to make the cinnamon rolls here's what you do:

-Cut in only half of the butter when making the dough. 

-Roll the dough to a 1/4 inch thick rectangle. 

-Soften the unused butter, and spread it on the dough. Sprinkle generously with cinnamon and sugar. 

-Roll up the dough, and slice into 1/2 inch spirals. 

-Place them into a buttered round cake pan. 

-Bake at 450 for ~20 minutes. 

-Serve with vanilla glaze or cream cheese frosting. 

I was so happy with the result. Delicious and fast! I mentioned them to my mom, and she told me that my grandma used to make these for her! So, this is nothing new, and I think that's a good thing. Most recipes that are repeated by many are the best ones. I'll be adding this one to the rotation for sure.
