quick cinnamon rolls

If you’re like me, sometimes you need a quick cinnamon roll fix but didn’t plan ahead and don’t have 2-3 hours to wait for your perfect cinnamon rolls to finish which is why I am so excited to share with you this quick, simple cinnamon roll recipe.


  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 cup milk


  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon


  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3-6 tablespoons hot water


Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter. Stir in milk to create a dough. Roll out dough into a rectangle about 1/4 inches thick.

Combine filling ingredients in a small bowl. Spread filling mixture over rectangle dough.

Roll up the rectangle from long side to long side and with a sharp knife, slice into 12-18 rolls.

Use melted butter and spread over the bottom of a 9×9 pan. Take some white sugar and sprinkle the bottom of the pan. Lay each roll into the pan.

Bake for 20-25 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Meanwhile, combine butter, sugar, and vanilla. Add hot water 1 tablespoon at a time until the glaze reaches the desired consistency. Spread over slightly cooled rolls.
