Quick Cinnamon Rolls


 I've made some quick cinnamon rolls for my tea today.  I'm serving the rolls on my Flamingo Fiesta Ware plate which goes so nicely with my Pfaltsgraff, The Secrets of Pistoulet tea set that was sent to me from a sweet blogging friend.  I made the runner from osnaburg fabric, which has a soft feel and a linen-like look.  My bunny topiary was a gift from some friends, ages ago. 


I just love this tea set for one with the matching honey pot.  Isn't the design such a pretty, dainty one on the teapot and cup?  The matching honey pot looks like a darling beehive.  The pink Flamingo plate picks up the pink on the band of the cup. 



When needing something sweet for a breakfast  or brunch, and you don't have much time, you might consider making these quick cinnamon rolls.  They're also great if you don't want a lot of leftovers and kids can help out, too.  Just double the recipe if needing more.  I hope you give them a try. 


Rolls:


1 1/4 cups all purpose flour, plus extra for the counter
1 Tablespoons white granulated sugar
1  teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 T. cold butter
1/2 cup milk

2 Tablespoons of softened butter for spreading on dough

Cinnamon Filling:
1/3  cup packed dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Icing:
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2-3 Tablespoons milk

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Generously butter a 9 inch round cake pan, or six muffin cups. 

2. Make the filling: combine together the brown sugar and the cinnamon.  Set aside.

3. Make the dough: In a large bowl, whisk together the flour; sugar, baking powder, and salt.  Cut in the 2 Tablespoons of cold butter with a pastry blender.  Stir in the milk and toss until it forms a ball. Knead briefly just to gather it into a ball. 

4.  Roll the dough or pat it on a lightly floured surface, into a 7" square.  Spread the dough with the 2 Tablespoons of softened butter. Spread the sugar filling on top of the butter and roll the dough up tightly, pinching the dough to seal.

5.  Slice the log into 6 slices.  Place into the greased pan or muffin cups,  cut side down. 

6.  Bake at 400 degrees for 18-20 minutes, or until golden brown.  Place on wire rack and then invert.

7.  Make icing by combining the ingredients, using enough milk to make a drizzle,  and spread over warm rolls.

  7. Hi Kitty,

    I LOVE this tea set for one and matching honeypot. It's darling! I especially love the lid on the teapot -- really pretty. You're right; the pink plate perfectly matches the pink band on the tea cup.

    These cinnamon rolls look melt-in-your-mouth good, Kitty. :-D I'm going to pin this for sure. I like the recipe because it looks like there's no kneading involved. Thanks so much for sharing and have a wonderful day!

    Hugs,

  32. So no yeast involved, huh? Hmmmmm....this might be the recipe for me. I am a walking disaster when it comes to anything with yeast. My other weakness is that I tend to want to knead stuff too much. Weird how I can make excellent pie dough, but I just can't seem to get anything else right that involves kneading. That's why I don't make a lot of cookies. Oh, well....I'll pin this and give it a try. Keep your fingers crossed!
