The Ultimate Breakfast Rolls



Cinnamon rolls.

Breakfast doesn’t get any better than all of the above.

Unless!…you decided to roll all three into ONE:


Tender like a biscuit, toothsome like a scone, sweet like a cinnamon roll.

More please?

The Ultimate Breakfast Rolls

For the rolls:

*One batch of biscuit dough (Keeping It Cozy has a GREAT one!)

*2 Tablespoons butter

*3-4 Tablespoons brown sugar

*1-2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

For the icing:

*2 Tablespoons melted butter (preferably salted)

*2 Tablespoons maple syrup

*3-4 Tablespoon powdered sugar

*1 Tablespoon heavy cream


Roll your biscuit dough out about 1/2″ thick.


Spread melted butter over dough.  Sprinkle on sugar and cinnamon.


Carefully roll dough up and pinch edges to secure.


Cut into 3″ slices (I like mine thick!) and place in a well-seasoned cast-iron skillet.


You could also use a baking sheet, but cast iron produces a biscuit that is tender yet flaky with just the right amount of crispness on the bottom.

(Thank you Andrea at Keeping It Cozy for showing me that a cast iron skillet produces the perfect biscuits!)

Bake rolls at 400 degrees until golden, about 20 minutes.  Keep an eye on them around 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the glaze by whisking the melted butter, syrup and powdered sugar together until smooth.  Stir in cream.  You want the glaze the consistency of honey.  If it’s too stiff, add more cream.  If it’s too loose, add more powdered sugar.

Glaze rolls while warm.

Enjoy with a lovely cup of coffee and a friend.  🙂

  1. OMG, those look dangerous and delish. I never thought of using a skillet for biscuits, very cool and in the summer you don’t have to start the oven. I like you pretty dishes too.
