Picture of Easy Brown Sugar Cinnamon Breakfast Rolls
Hey there! Ever get that hankering for something kind of spiffed up for breakfast on a Saturday morning, but don't necessarily want to spend all morning making it? Do you have some left over rolls of biscuit dough and baking supplies you want to use up? [insert cheesy salesman voice] Then do I have a recipe for you!

Step 1: You Will Need:

This calls for very few ingredients, and you likely have most of them already!

1 10 count roll of Pillsbury Country Style Biscuits (I am sure other brands or styles would work, but the times/temps given may need tweaking)
Room temperature butter (for ease of use, cold is fine too)
Brown sugar
Small bowl for combining the sugar and cinnamon
A baking sheet of some kind (I used a pizza tray)
Spoon for mixing and portioning, knife for the butter
An oven preheated to 425F if using a dark or nonstick pan, 450F otherwise.

I did not measure out specific quantities of sugar and cinnamon ... I used a small ramekin, filled it most of the way with brown sugar and a generous covering of cinnamon and then stirred it to combine.

Step 2: Prep the biscuit dough

Remove the biscuit dough from the tube and separate it into the individual rounds. Stretch it slightly, trying to do so evenly out from the center.

Step 3: Top the biscuit dough

Remember your brown sugar and cinnamon? If you have not already, combine them in a small bowl. Now spoon an even layer on to the biscuit dough. You want it thick enough so that you can't see any dough through it, but it doesn't have to be thicker than that.

Use your fingers to smooth the sugar mix toward the edges if you need too. Then top with half a pat of butter. Centering it or not centering it is not important as it will move around as you work with it ... as long as the butter is on there it is fine.
Those sound really good!

Thank you! I was pleased with them. Very vaguely cinnamon brown sugar poptart taste on the filling but in a less crunchy/cloyingly sweet way :)
