I sure love a good cinnamon roll! The only problem is that if you get a hankering for a homemade, from scratch, ooey gooey cinnamon roll… don’t hold your breath, because it’s going to take a while. It can take several hours to make a good cinnamon roll. Which is why I flocked to this quick cinnamon rolls recipe!
This is why these genius women came up with a quick solution! They start with a quick biscuit recipe and end slathered with butter, cinnamon and sugar! You are eating cinnamon rolls in less than 30 minutes. Not only are they quick, but they are homemade & from scratch! Oh… heaven help me.
I am pretty much in cooking heaven right now. I just celebrated my birthday, and to my surprise my Uncle, from Rose City Books and descendant of the Hutchinson Pioneers, found, purchased, wrapped and gave me a copy of the same book my Grandmother and Great Grandmother Hutchinson used to cook from! I would be lying if I said it didn’t make me emotional. Are you kidding me? Of course I was emotional. It was a hot mess. However, in my defense… I’m a sentimental weirdo 😀
It’s The Household Searchlight Recipe Book, and I’m in awe. Usually I have a very difficult time with older recipes, but I haven’t found a recipe yet that I don’t like. It’s time to get in the kitchen and start cooking quick cinnamon rolls, people! Oh! And check out my Uncle’s Antique Book Store, Rose City Books, you might find a hidden gem to spark your passion and inspiration!
