Skillet Cinnamon Rolls

Skillet Cinnamon Rolls

cinnamon rolls #4My family loves biscuits, they also love cinnamon rolls, but my baking skills involving yeast are seriously lacking.  The word yeast in a recipe gives me palpitations and causes my hands to sweat.  Years ago I attempted the (suppose to be easy) bread making with a starter, totally flopped!  On the other hand, I love making biscuits with Bisquick® baking mix. What’s not to love….everything is already measured and mixed in that beautiful yellow box,  just add milk!cinnamon rolls#3

With the family’s love of cinnamon rolls, I experimented for years until finally creating this recipe.cinnamon rolls #6

Baking the cinnamon rolls in a piping hot cast iron skillet with melted butter, pole vault them to a whole new level. When the butter, sugar and cinnamon combine in the skillet, something magical happens.  The crusty, sugary edges open up to a soft biscuit like center.  Delicious!cinnamon rolls

I just finished watching one of those cooking episodes about baking bread with yeast and I’m sure that I completely zoned out after  mention of the “Y” word.  Hey, as long as the family likes the biscuit cinnamon rolls, it’s all good.cinnamon rolls #5


3 cups Bisquick®

1 cup milk

1 stick butter, divided

  5. Sprinkle 1/2 of the cinnamon sugar over the dough
  6. Roll the rectangle lengthwise, ending with the seam down, cut into 8 rolls
