How to Make Cinnamon Roll Biscuits Out Of Bisquick

Cinnamon roll biscuits are always a morning treat at my house and a nice change from having just regular biscuits. It took a little experimenting but I finally figured out the way to make them quick and easy. Try these out for yourself and you'll be surprised just how delicious they are.

Ingredients for Biscuits: 

  • 2 1/4 cups of Bisquick 
  • 2/3    cup of milk

Ingredients for Cinnamon & Sugar Mix:

  • 1/2 cup of white sugar
  • 2 TBSP of Cinnamon
  • 1 TBSP of Brown Sugar
  • Sprinkle of Nut Meg

You're also going to need a 2/3 cup of butter

Step 1: Mix the 2 1/4 cups of Bisquick in and 2/3 cup of milk in a large bowl just like your making regular Bisquick biscuits. Important: you don't want to add cinnamon or sugar to the mix because that a separate step.

Step 2: Simply mix the ingredients I have listed for the cinnamon and sugar mix in a jar or container. Shake to make sure mixture is well blended together.

Step 3:  Melt 2/3 a cup of butter in the microwave. This is also probably a good time to go ahead and preheat your oven to 450 F.

Step 4 (above): Take a large cutting board and roll out your Bisquick dough mix very carefully onto it where's about less than 1/2 a inch thick. Then very slowly drizzle your now melted butter over the rolled out dough and brush to make sure it's covering the whole surface area of the dough on the topside. Finally take your cinnamon and sugar mix and sprinkle evenly over the entire surface area of the dough just like you did the butter and as you see in the picture. You should have a little cinnamon sugar mix left for Step 6.

Step 5 (above): Proceed to roll your dough from one end to the other very carefully until you have it completely rolled up as you see in the picture. Take a sharp knife and very delicately cut the dough every 1/2 inch which should come out to about 9 cinnamon roll shaped biscuits.

Step 6 (above): Very carefully (starting sound like a broken record) pick up your cinnamon roll shaped biscuit dough and place evenly on a large cookie sheet or pan. Whatever you have left of your cinnamon and sugar mix from Step 4 sprinkle a tiny bit over on top of the cinnamon biscuits to give it more a topping since all the good stuff is in the spiral. Throw in the now preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until they look golden brown.

Finally and very quickly I might add because this doesn't take long at all, you can enjoy your cinnamon roll biscuits. I love my eggs in the morning and these compliment eggs cooked any style, sausage, bacon, and hash browns very nicely.


  1. How funny. Looks a lot like these: http://everydayfoodadventures.blogspot.com/2011/07/biscuits-or-cinnamon-rolls-both.html that I posted a few months ago. Great minds think alike!

  2. Lol, Charlene, just left a comment on your blog. Great minds think alike is a great way to put it! Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

  3. Oh, this brings back some memories...this is the EXACT way my parents made cinnamon rolls! We had them about once a month and it was such a great treat for all of us! Thank you for posting such a lovely food memory!

  4. What a great blog you have, these look delicious and oh so simple! So glad to be a new follower! xoxo

  5. Ann, thanks. Same with my family... although not as often. That's why I had to learn how to do them myself. :)

    Chewie, thanks for stopping by.

    Kelly, I appreciate the nice comments. I'm following your blog as well and I feel the same way about it.

  6. i should appreciate your work. it is nice and i wanna try

  7. While I love homemade cinnamon rolls from scratch, I almost never (and by almost never I really mean never) get up early enough to make them! These are a great, quick substitute.

  8. Cafe Dietitan, Thanks! I agree. That's my aim with this blog. Quick, easy, and not to mention fun!

    Three Little Piglets, exactly.. homemade cinnamon rolls would be nice to try but when you don't wanna take up the whole morning, these are great! Thanks for your feedback.
