Bisquick Cinnamon Rolls
I wanted to use up the Bisquick I had in the pantry and the buttermilk but couldn’t find a recipe I liked so I just made up my own for homemade cinnamon rolls. Sundays are our slow day. Sometimes I never even get out of my PJs.
Sundays are also one of the only days my family might get a good breakfast for breakfast, or close to that time. So on the weekends is when I try to make it up to the family on the breakfast thing. This is a perfect recipe to treat the fam.
- 4 cups Bisquick mix
- 1 1/4 cup buttermilk
- 4 tablespoons sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1/2 cup chopped nuts (I used pecans)
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 3/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1-2 tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla

In a large bowl, Combine Bisquick, buttermilk and sugar using a fork. Mix just until all combined to create a dough.
In a medium bowl, Combine brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon and nuts in separate bowl. Add 2 tablespoons melted butter and stir to moisten. Set aside.
Generously flour rolling surface. I know it seems like a lot but trust me, this is a sticky dough. Turn dough out onto surface and start patting into a rectangular shape with your hand. Flour your hand well also.
Use a rolling pin to thin dough to about 1/2 inch thickness. Do not over-roll, the dough will stick.
Once rolled out, pour 3/4 cup melted butter over entire surface then spread with pastry brush to even out and get to the edges.
Sprinkle sugar/nut mixture over butter.
Start rolling dough from long end.
Slice into 1 inch to 1/2 inch slices. I used dental floss to slice mine. It really does work, without mushing the pastry.
Transfer slices to a well greased (sprayed) 9" x 13" pan. I used a spatula to make it easier.
Bake in preheated 375 degree fahrenheit oven for 25-30 minutes, until just golden brown on tops.
Let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
Combine powdered sugar, milk and vanilla until desired consistency and drizzle over topped of rolls.
