Hey everyone! It has been the picture perfect fall day, in Sonoma County today.  With weather like this, baking was calling my name. I was given a new Kitchen Aid Mixer for my birthday last week and I finally got to use it! I didn’t have a ton of time today, so I needed to make something sweet and it needed to be quick and easy. These cookies were super quick to make, and are super tasty! If you are a chocolate desert person like me, you are going to love these cookies.

Happy Baking!

 Welcome back to my tiny kitchen. The weather has been blah here in Carson City NV. Brownies seemed like the perfect solution yesterday. I love baking brownies, they are really hard to mess up. You don’t have to worry about them rising, or being over done. Everyone likes a little bit of chewy brownie edge.  Cooking in an RV oven, I will take any help that I can get. These brownies came out so good, and so tasty. I doubled my recipe. The guys Jordan works with are all working away from home too, so I like to send him to work with some homemade goodness.

These no yeast, no rise Cinnamon Rolls are sooo good, and they take less than a hour to make! I wish these were healthier, because I could eat the whole pan! These are great for a sweet treat, or weekend breakfast. I love cinnamon rolls, and this is a perfect no hassle version!

What you need

Cinnamon Rolls

1/2 Cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 large egg

1 cup of butter milk

3 cups flour, 1/3 cup for dusting

Filling

4 tablespoons softened butter

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Glaze

6 tablespoons of heavy cream ( or milk)

1 1/2 cup powdered sugar

2 tablespoons softened butter

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees. Use spray and grease muffin tin.  Mix together your dry ingredients in a bowl, and mix your egg, butter, vanilla and sugar in a separate bowl. Gradually combine your flour mixture into your wet mixture, until everything is mixed together. Your dough will be a little sticky, so don’t be afraid to dust it a bit in the bowl while you kneed it together

Combine filling mixture in separate bowl.

After dough is kneed together, dust counter and rolling pin with flour. Roll out your dough. Make sure you keep it all the same thickness. You want your middle to be the same thickness as the middle.  Spread out filling mixture across dough.

Roll up dough and cut into 2inch rounds. Place cinnamon rolls into greased muffin tin. Bake for 13-15 minutes. check at 12min.

Combine glaze mixture in separate small bowl.

Let the cinnamon rolls cool for 15 minutes before glazing. I took mine out of the pan before glazing, they popped right out.

I think these yummy cinnamon rolls taste best warm, so just heat them up for 15 second in the microwave for next day munching! 🙂
