  • rolling pin
  • Baking sheet


  • 1 tube refrigerator biscuits
  • 1 tablespoon salted butter , melted
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar , sifted
  • 3 teaspoons milk (or cream)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C).  Lightly grease baking pan. Set aside.
  • Open the can of biscuits and separate them. 
  • Place each biscuit side by side on a cutting board with the sides slightly overlapping each other.
  • Using a rolling pin, roll out the biscuits until flat and the dough is in the shape of a rectangle.
  • Using a pastry brush, brush the butter over the top of the entire piece of dough.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the sugar and the cinnamon. Sprinkle over the buttered dough.
  • Roll up from one of the long sides. Seal seams.
  • Slice dough into 1-inch pieces. Place rolls on baking pan. 
  • Bake for 20 minutes.
  • Sift the powdered sugar with a sifter or a mesh strainer. Mix powdered sugar and milk in a small bowl. If the glaze is too thick, thin it out by adding a little more milk. If you find the glaze to be too thin, add a bit more powdered sugar until you achieve the desired consistency.


Expert Tips
  • Be sure to sift the powdered sugar for the cinnamon roll glaze. You want to get the lumps out so that the glaze is smooth.
  • If you would like the glaze to be thinner, add a bit more milk. If you find that the glaze is too thin, add a touch more powdered sugar.
