Ingredients:

  • Bisquick Blitz:

    • 2 ½ cups Bisquick baking mix
  • Wet Ingredients:

    • 1/3 cup milk
    • 1 egg
  • Cinnamon Sugar Swirl:

    • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
    • ¼ cup granulated sugar
    • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
    • ½ cup chopped nuts (optional)
  • Buttery Bliss:

    • 2 tablespoons melted butter (for filling)
    • ¾ cup melted butter, cooled (for spreading)
  • Luscious Glaze:

    • 1 cup powdered sugar
    • 1-2 tablespoons milk
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions:

  1. Combine and Conquer: In a large bowl, use a fork to combine the Bisquick mix, milk, and egg. Mix only until a soft dough forms. Avoid overmixing.

  2. Sugar Rush: In a separate bowl, create your cinnamon sugar filling by combining the brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and chopped nuts (if using).

  3. Butter Up: Melt 2 tablespoons of butter. Set this aside for drizzling over the dough.

  4. Floured Fury: Generously sprinkle flour on a clean work surface and your hands to prevent sticking.

  5. Rolling Out the Fun: Turn the dough out onto the floured surface and gently pat it into a large rectangle, aiming for a thickness of about ½ inch. Don't worry about achieving perfect uniformity – a rustic look is part of the charm!

  6. Sweet and Buttery Bliss: Spread the cooled, melted butter (¾ cup) evenly over the entire surface of the dough using a pastry brush. This adds richness and flakiness to the rolls.

  7. Sprinkle with Joy: Generously sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture over the buttered dough, making sure it reaches all the edges.

  8. The Great Roll Up: Starting from the long end of the dough rectangle, begin rolling it up tightly into a log shape. Pinch the seam closed to ensure the filling stays put.

  9. Slice and Dice: Using a sharp knife or dental floss (a clever trick!), cut the dough log into slices that are 1 to 1½ inches thick.

  10. Bake to Gooey Perfection: Carefully transfer the sliced rolls to a greased 9x13 inch baking pan. Leave a little space between them for spreading.

  11. Golden Goodness: Bake the cinnamon rolls in a preheated oven at 375°F (190°C) for 25-30 minutes, or until they are golden brown on top.

  12. A Moment of Rest: Let the cinnamon rolls cool in the pan for about 5 minutes before serving. This allows the filling to set slightly and prevents them from becoming mushy.

  13. Glaze the Glory: While the rolls cool, prepare the glaze by whisking together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until you reach a smooth, drizzling consistency.

  14. The Grand Finale: Drizzle the glaze generously over the warm cinnamon rolls and enjoy! Get ready for a burst of warm, gooey cinnamon flavor in every bite.
