No Yeast Cinnamon Rolls

A few weeks ago we had a grumpy 4 year old with a double infection. When I asked him what he wanted for dinner, he said he wanted cinnamon rolls.  Since he seemed so miserable I was happy to comply especially since I had my eye on this no yeast cinnamon roll recipe from Recipe Girl.   THey were really delicous and they were quick. We're they as good as fluffy yeast cinnamon rolls that take hours to prepare. Not quite, but they were still yummy and perfect for cinnimon rolls that need to make a little faster.

No Yeast Cinnamon Rolls
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon

  • 2all-purpose flour plus more for rolling
  • 2 tablespoons granulated white sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 large egg, beaten

Cream Cheese Frosting:
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons milk or buttermilk
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a muffin tin with nonstick spray.
Prepare the filling: In a small bowl, combine the filling ingredients with a fork until a crumbly mixture is formed.
Prepare the dough: In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Use a stand mixer with the cookie paddle or use a pastry blender to work the butter into the dry ingredients. Add the milk and the egg and stir to combine. Roll the dough out on a floured surface into roughly shaped large rectangle (about 1/4-inch thick). Sprinkle the filling evenly over the surface of the dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border all the way around. Carefully roll up the rectangle (the dough will be soft). Use a sharp knife to cut 12 rolls. Carefully place the rolls in the prepared muffin tin.
Bake 20 to 25 minutes. While the cinnamon rolls are baking, prepare the frosting: Combine the cream cheese, powdered sugar and milk/buttermilk in a medium bowl will an electric mixer to combine. Add a little more milk if you wish to have a thinner frosting. Spread the frosting on top of warm rolls or drizzle on top. Serve warm.

I'm sorry, but I've turned word verification on again. I hate trying to decipher the words just as much as anyone, but I'm getting way too much spam. I tried doing comment moderation as people suggested but the number or spam comments I had to sift through was ridiculous. I appreciate your comments and didn't want them to get lost among the spam. Hopefully, I can reduce the amount of spam and turn the word verification off soon.
