How to Make Petra's Biscuit Cinnamon Rolls w/ Icing


  1. Preheat oven to 350*F.
  2. DOUGH:
    Mix together dry ingredients. Cut in softened butter. Gradually add milk to flour mixture, stirring it after each pour, until it becomes sticky dough. Turn out onto a well floured surface and knead until no longer sticky. Divide dough in two and roll out to about 3/4 inch thick circle - with each.
    Melt butter in a saucepan on medium heat. Add brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. Stir well. Spread filling all over dough. Roll from one end to the other. Slice rolls with the thickness of 1 1/2 inches. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes at 350. Or until dough is brown-tan on top. Serve hot or cold. Topped with Icing
  4. ICING: (Optional)
    Melt butter between low and medium heat. Add powdered sugar and vanilla. Stir until all the sugar is in the butter. Add Milk, and stir. If this stiffens, all you have to do is heat it back up and it will drizzle nicely. Pour over cinnamon roll and don't hork it down!! Enjoy it's flavor... ;)
