Quick Cinnabon inspired Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon Roll Biscuits


I was asked to make a recipe using International Delights flavored creamers and was racking my brain for something to create. I had already made truffles around Valentines Day and I was having a hard time coming up with another great recipe. As I was looking at the different flavors of the creamers (Heath Bar, Almond Joy, Cinnabon, York Peppermint Patty), I was trying to think of ideas. Inspiration struck as the kids (plus their visiting cousin) started begging for breakfast pastries as I was looking at the creamers. I thought, hmmmm, I wonder if I can make cinnamon rolls using the Cinnabon creamer. They would have to be a quick version of cinnamon rolls…maybe biscuit rolls? Maybe cinnamon roll muffins? Something would work.

I have made lots of cinnamon rolls in my day. These are my favorite. And, these are good in a pinch but are’t really my favorite. I decided to take this recipe–modify it a bit and see what would happen. It took a couple of iterations but I finally got the rolls the kids wanted.

Quick Cinnabon inspired Cinnamon Rolls
For the Rolls:
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup International Delight Cinnabon creamer
  • ¼ cup whole millk
For the filling:
  • 3 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon (or more if you love the strong cinnamon taste)
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon melted butter
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 1-2 Tablespoons milk
For the Rolls:
  1. 1) Stir together the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder salt).
  2. 2) Add the creamer and milk, stirring with a wooden spoon.
  3. 3) Put the dough on a floured surface and knead gently. You should have a nice soft dough that is very pliable and easy to push flat.
  4. 4) Using your hands (no need for a rolling pin) stretch the dough into a flat rectangle about ½ inch thick.
  5. 5) Generously, lather the melted butter on top of the dough. Don't be stingy!
  6. 6) Sprinkle the brown sugar and cinnamon all over....if you love cinnamon, add a bit more. If you have raisins or nuts--add those too!
  7. 7) Roll it up.
  8. 8) Cut into about ¾-1 inch segments. And place in the baking pan.
  9. 9) Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

  11. 11) Drizzle the icing over the pan of warm rolls.
