These quick and easy buttery rolled biscuits are filled with brown sugar, butter and cinnamon and topped with a cream cheese frosting. Shades of cinnamon rolls without the yeast and in a quarter of the time!
These lovely little cinnamon roll biscuits are just the thing when you want the flavours of a cinnamon roll, without the yeasted dough and the hours of rising time. These are great for any time of day and are delicious both with or without the cream cheese frosting.
If you're a regular reader, you may remember my first offering of ragamuffins this past Spring, when I made maple sugar ragamuffins. I took that same great flaky biscuit dough and rolled it up with a classic cinnamon roll filling of brown sugar, cinnamon and butter. I was originally going to stop there, but in the spirit of go-big-or-go-home, I topped them with a generous swirl of cream cheese frosting.
The results were amazing! Cinnamon roll craving thoroughly satisfied in about 30 minutes :)
Be sure to remove the ragamuffins from the muffin tins while they are still warm. If they cool completely, they are much harder to get out :)
These biscuits are lovely on their own, so if you don't feel like frosting them, trust me, you will still enjoy these, especially for a morning or mid-afternoon treat.
As these are biscuits, they are best enjoyed on the day they are baked. If you can't enjoy them all right away, they freeze beautifully.
