Remember the 3 Ingredients Biscuit recipe that I did the other day? While I was eating one I remembered a cinnamon roll my mom would sometimes make us using Bisquick on weekend mornings. OMG, these are so much better! With the biscuit recipe and some cinnamon smear these are what a quick cinnamon roll should taste like. They are light, tender with a cinnamon goodness and just a touch of sweetness from the icing.

Total Time: 20 minutes
Cinnamon Rolls made using our 3 Ingredients Biscuit recipe. Full of cinnamon goodness! Ready in 20 minutes or less.
2 cups White Lily self rising flour - plus a little more for rolling out
2/3 cup buttermilk
3 tablespoons Crisco or butter (I used half and half today)
4 tablespoons brown sugar
4 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 cup confectionary sugar
1 teaspoon butter
1 tablespoon milk
Mix together the cinnamon smear and set aside.
Make the biscuit dough
Cut the shortening into the flour. Stir in the buttermilk until combined. Have ready a piece of waxed paper with some additional flour on it. Put dough in center and knead it a few turns until the dough hold together. Sprinkle a little more flour on the wax paper making sure it is not sticking under the dough. Pat the dough out into a 8 x 14 shape.
Spread the cinnamon smear on the dough.
Roll the dough into a cylinder. You can use the wax paper to help you roll the dough by lifting and rolling the dough over itself.
Cut into 12 pieces. Place in a greased 9 inch cake pan.
Bake at 450 degrees for about 12 minutes. They will be browned on the bottom and tops. While baking mix up the icing.
Turn out of pan unto a cooling rack. Flip over and ice while still hot.
