Working with yeast has always intimidated me, I'll admit it. Don't know why, it just does. That's why I don't bake much bread other than the quick breads or muffins. This recipe seemed right up my alley. http://www.food.com/recipe/quick-cinnamon-rolls-no-yeast-293243 Photo by: Rick

How To Make quick cinnamon rolls - no yeast!

  • 1
    Filling: In a small bowl, combine the softened butter, brown sugar and cinnamon to form a crumbly mixture. Sprinkle half of the mixture over the bottom of a 9x9" pan.
  • 2
    Dough: In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in softened butter. Stir in milk to form a soft dough.
  • 3
    Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle about 1/4" thick.
  • 4
    Spread the remaining filling on the rolled-out dough. Roll up the rectangle, and with a sharp knife slice into 18 small rolls (or 12 if you want them bigger).
  • 5
    Place the rolls in the 9x9" pan and bake in a pre-heated 400-degree oven for 20-25 minutes.
  • 6
    Glaze: combine powdered sugar and milk in a small bowl and stir until smooth.
  • 7
    When the rolls are done, drizzle on the glaze and serve warm with hot coffee or a cold glass of milk.
