Biscuit Cinnamon Rolls are quick, easy to make, and no rise too! Deliciously sweet and irresistible, ooey gooey, homemade breakfast treats.

Biscuit Cinnamon Rolls are so easy to make; they’re a delicious alternative to traditional cinnamon rolls, and they’re no rise! Sweet breakfast treat perfect for the holidays or anytime!Biscuit Cinnamon Rolls are a quick and easy version of cinnamon rolls, especially given the fact that they require no yeast and no rise time. In some ways, I like these yummy treats even more than traditional cinnamon rolls made with yeast.

While you still have to roll them out, it doesn’t seem like quite as much work. And they’re still fluffy. They’re so fluffy and so ooey gooey. They’re perfect for when you’re craving traditional cinnamon rolls but don’t feel like going to all the work and dealing with all the wait time.

While I didn’t add raisins to this batch, you can totally add raisins to yours. When they’re warm right out of the oven is when you’ll want to spoon on the powdered sugar icing, which gives them even more of a gooey texture.

These cinnamon rolls make a perfect holiday breakfast treat… In fact, I’ve already planned to make these again Christmas morning. And I’m definitely adding this recipe to my list of The Best Christmas Recipes for Your Holiday Celebrations.How to make the most scrumptious Biscuit Cinnamon Rolls, perfect for a breakfast treat or even for dessert. No rise, no wait time, no yeast. And they’re still so fluffy!

Tips for how to make Easy Biscuit Cinnamon Rolls

  • First, you’ll need to gather your ingredients… You’ll need all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, unsalted butter, milk, sugar, ground cinnamon, salted butter, and possibly raisins. For the icing, you’ll need salted butter, vanilla extract, heavy whipping cream, and powdered sugar.
  • Pre-heat the oven to 425°.
  • Mix up the dough for my Easy Homemade Biscuits, or you can mix up the dough from our Campfire Cinnamon Rolls.
  • Once you have your dough mixed up, sprinkle a handful of flour on a clean surface. Take your dough and knead a bit of flour into it, shaping it with your hands.
  • Use a rolling pin to roll the dough out to about a 1-inch thickness.
  • In a cereal-sized bowl, mix together the sugar and cinnamon.
  • Melt the salted butter.
  • Brush the butter onto your rolled out dough.
  • Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture all over the dough, giving the dough an even covering.
  • If you want raisins, sprinkle them all over the dough, as well.
  • Somewhat tightly, roll the dough into a long, thick roll. Slice into approximately 1-inch wide pieces.
  • Place the cinnamon rolls, face up, into a greased pan.
  • Bake the cinnamon rolls at 425° for about 20 minutes or until the tops begin to turn a warm golden hue.
  • While the cinnamon rolls are baking, mix up a simple powdered sugar icing. You can use my Easy Sugar Cookie Icing, but I do recommend cutting the ingredients down because you don’t need near as much icing as the recipe will make… I’d suggest cutting it down to 1/4 of what it calls for and leave out the almond extract. Note: You want the icing to be thin enough to brush onto the cinnamon rolls, so alternate powdered sugar and heavy whipping cream until you achieve your desired consistency.
  • Once the cinnamon rolls are baked, remove them from the oven, and let them cool for about 5 minutes.
  • Brush or spoon the icing onto the tops of the cinnamon rolls. Serve and enjoy!

Alternative options for Biscuit Cinnamon Rolls

  • Raisins are optional, so add them if you want; or leave them out if you don’t.
  • You could add crumbled pecans or walnuts to the dough when you sprinkle on the cinnamon/sugar mixture.
  • You can substitute a little bit of brown sugar for some of the regular sugar in the cinnamon/sugar mixture you sprinkle onto the dough.
  • Use fruit jam or even something like Nutella in place of the butter and cinnamon/sugar mixture. I haven’t tried this, but I kinda bet it would be good.
  • Mix up more of a cream cheese frosting, like this Caramel Cream Cheese Glaze, instead of a powdered sugar icing.

If you try any of these alternative options, let me know how they turned out by leaving me a comment below. I’d love to hear from you!

Kitchen tools you may need to make Easy Biscuit Cinnamon Rolls

Mixing Bowl – My handled bowl is probably my favorite bowl to use; I use it all the time, especially when mixing up biscuits or pie crust.
Pastry Blender – This helps to really cut in the butter with the dry ingredients when you’re mixing up the biscuit dough.
Rolling Pin – I use my rolling pin anytime I make dinner rolls, biscuits, pie crust, etc.
Cereal-Sized Bowl – A cereal-sized bowl is the perfect size for mixing up a small batch of icing.
Pastry Brush – You can either brush the icing on or spoon it on. A brush helps you to spread the icing over the cinnamon roll.
Plastic Spatula – Works so well for slicing the dough into cinnamon rolls, and then separating the cinnamon rolls when serving.
Round Cake Pan – I used a 9-inch round cake pan for this batch, and it’s the perfect size.
