This is a super fun and easy way to make delicious cinnamon buns right inside hollowed out oranges. Leaving just enough orange meat inside the cups gives the cinnamon rolls the perfect zesty orange flavour. The best part about these is you can also make them right over a fire - great for camping!
I makes dozens of these a week and my customers love that they are not overly sweet or gooey.
Pretty close to the real thing!
Cut each biscuit in long strips. Starting at the edge of biscuit and cutting in a circle. Melt butter in cake pan in oven, leave about 2 tablespoons in the bottom of pan and put remaining butter in a separate bowl.
I was hungry for cinnamon rolls the other morning and I had a can of Grands Biscuits in the refrigerator. I took each biscuit and rolled it into a circle, spread it with butter, topped it with cinnamon and brown sugar and raisins. I cut them in half and put them in a greased muffin tin. Baked at 350 degrees F for about 15 minutes.

When making cinnamon rolls, instead of cutting the roll into segments with a knife, which tends to squish them, just cut a length of dental floss or heavy thread about 10 or 12 inches long.

I would like a recipe for easy cinnamon rolls.

The frozen bread dough that comes in the 2 or 3 packs, makes great rolls. I think there are even directions on the package. Can also make cinnamon pull apart, defrost and let rise, melt butter and make a bowl of cinnamon sugar. Coat pan with butter and take walnut size pieces of dough, dip in butter, roll in cinn/sugar, pile in pan. Bake and yummy! It's messy, good for the kids to get to do, because you'll get messy one way or another. Can also sprinkle raisins or any other chopped dried fruit in with the layers of dough as you stack. Hope that helps some.

I am making cinnamon rolls made from frozen bread dough. Does anyone have any suggestions for special flavors they use in theirs? Thanks.
I'm asking for your help on helping a friend find a recipe that her Mom used to make. (Her Mom is in a nursing home and doesn't know or remember much any longer, sorry to say.) My friend says it's along the way you make cinnamon rolls, but you use cottage cheese as a filling, along with cinnamon and chopped nuts. Thanks for any help!
At Wal Mart I found a CD titled 'One Million Recipies' I am not certain that there are actually a million on there, but there are a lot. Everything from kid-friendly recipies, diabetic, crock pots...so maybe that will help. It cost $9.99 so, much cheaper than most cookbook with a lot fewer entries. Also, maybe looking at online sites for cooking. If you are interested in 'secret recipies' from your favourite restaurants, go to www.topsecretrecipies.com and there are a lot of good recipies there.
