Homemakers in the Making Monday

Homemade Cinnamon Rolls

3 1/4 cups of busquick

1 cup of milk

1/3 cup of margarine

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

In a large bowl, combine the Busquick and milk. Mix them together until you have a soft dough. Turn the dough out onto a large sheet of waxed paper. Knead the dough gently for a few seconds. Pat the dough into a rectangular shape. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out so that it's about half an inch thick. Try to keep it in a rectangular shape as you roll it out, this is challenging at first.

Mix the margarine, brown sugar, and cinnamon together and spread it over the dough.

Now here's the tricky part. Lift up one side of the waxed paper and use it to help you roll up the dough like a jelly roll (I found it's easier to do this if you let the dough sit in the freezer for about 10 min.). Pull back the waxed paper as you go so it doesn't get wrapped up in the roll. When the roll is nicely formed, use a sharp knife to cut it into about a 9-11 slices.
Arrange the cinnamon rools in a well-greased 9x13-inch pan. squirt a little pancake syrup in the center of each cinnamon roll for flavor and stickiness.
Bake rolls at 400 for about 20 minutes. and let let them cool for about 25 minutes before icing.

If any of you have any great recipes, cleaning tips, dedorating ideas etc., that you'd like to share you can email us and we'll consider posting it.
