Cinnamon Rolls Buttermilk Biscuits
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
1/2 cup raisins
When you're making the buttermilk biscuits, add 1 tablespoon sugar to the dry
ingredients, then make the recipe as usual. Instead of patting the dough by
hand, roll it to 1/4 -inch thick into a rectangle on a lightly floured surface.
Sprinkle evenly with cinnamon, brown sugar and raisins.
Starting from the long side of the rectangle, roll dough up, encasing the
raisins, cinnamon and sugar. Chill 20 minutes.
Preheat oven to 425. Cut cinnamon rolls about 2 inches
wide. Place rolls on baking sheet about an inch apart.
Bake 12-15 minutes or until puffed and light brown. Dust
while hot with powdered sugar.
