- Prep Time: 15 minutes
- Cook Time: 25 minutes
- Total Time: 40 minutes
- Servings: 12 cinnamon rolls
- Bisquick mix
- Brown sugar
- Granulated sugar
- Ground cinnamon
- Chopped nuts (optional)
- Powdered sugar
- Vanilla extract
- 2 cups Bisquick mix
- 2/3 cup milk
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
- 1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). This optimal temperature ensures your cinnamon rolls will bake evenly and rise to fluffy perfection.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 cups of Bisquick mix, 2/3 cup of milk, and 1 egg. Stir until a soft dough forms. On a surface sprinkled lightly with additional Bisquick mix, knead the dough gently about 10 times.
- Roll the dough into a rectangle, approximately 12×9 inches in size. Brush the surface with 1/4 cup of melted and cooled butter, covering it generously.
- In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, granulated sugar, and cinnamon. Sprinkle this sweet mixture over the buttered dough, and add chopped nuts if desired for an extra crunch.
- Starting from the long end, roll the dough tightly into a log. With a sharp knife, cut the log into 12 even slices.
- Place the slices, cut side down, into a greased 9×13 inch baking pan. Brush the tops with 1/4 cup of melted butter, which will give your cinnamon rolls a beautifully golden finish.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown. While the rolls are baking, create a delectable glaze by mixing 1 cup of powdered sugar with 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 2 tablespoons of milk. Adjust the milk to get the desired consistency.
- Remove the cinnamon rolls from the oven and allow them to cool slightly. Drizzle the vanilla glaze over the warm rolls, letting it seep into the spirals.
- Serve your Easy Bisquick Cinnamon Rolls warm, and watch as they disappear quickly! These rolls are perfect for a cozy weekend breakfast, a friendly get-together, or simply as a treat to brighten up any day.

The Secrets Behind Perfect Recipe
The key to perfect Bisquick Cinnamon Rolls lies in the softness of the dough and the balance of sweetness and cinnamon. Ensure your butter is melted but cooled before brushing, and don’t over-knead the dough. The right amount of filling and a generous glaze are the final touches that make these rolls irresistible.
Serve these warm cinnamon rolls fresh from the oven, accompanied by a steaming cup of coffee or a glass of cold milk. They’re also perfect topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a decadent dessert.
Here are some frequently asked questions (FAQs) regarding the Easy Bisquick Cinnamon Rolls recipe, complete with informative answers:
- Can I make the dough ahead of time? Yes, you can prepare the dough ahead of time. Simply cover the rolled-out dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. When you’re ready to bake, let the dough come to room temperature, proceed with the filling, roll, cut, and bake as directed.
- What can I use instead of nuts? If you have a nut allergy or just prefer not to use them, you can leave the nuts out entirely or substitute them with raisins, dried cranberries, or even chocolate chips for a different twist.
- Can these cinnamon rolls be frozen? Absolutely! Bake the cinnamon rolls as directed, let them cool completely, and then wrap them individually or store them in an airtight container before freezing. You can freeze them for up to 2 months. When you’re ready to enjoy, thaw them at room temperature or warm them up in the oven or microwave.
- How can I tell when the cinnamon rolls are done? The cinnamon rolls should be golden brown on top when they’re done, and they will have a slightly firm touch. If you have a cooking thermometer, the internal temperature should reach around 190°F (88°C).
- Do I need to use powdered sugar for the glaze? Powdered sugar is recommended for a smooth glaze, but if you don’t have any on hand, you can create a simple syrup glaze with granulated sugar and water or milk, cooked until it thickens slightly.
- How should I store leftover cinnamon rolls? Leftover cinnamon rolls can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days. For longer storage, refrigerate them and then warm them up before serving.
- Can I use a different kind of milk in the recipe? Yes, you can use any kind of milk you have on hand, including whole milk, 2%, skim, or even plant-based milks like almond or soy milk.
- Is there a dairy-free version of this recipe? To make these cinnamon rolls dairy-free, use a dairy-free Bisquick alternative, plant-based milk, and a dairy-free butter substitute for both the dough and the glaze.
