Tammy's Cream Cheese Biscuit Rolls

This simple recipe comes from my cousin Tammy. I saw her pictures of it on facebook, and just HAD to give it a try!

It begins with biscuit dough, pressed out in a pan. I put parchment paper under my dough, b/c it was moist. Tammy used store biscuits in tins, which she popped out. I decided to make my own biscuit dough. Choose the one that works for you. Then spread a package of softened cream cheese over the dough.
Next, sprinkle on a mixture of brown sugar and cinnamon. I guess I used about 1/2 - 3/4 cup of brown sugar, with about a tsp. of cinnamon. I wanted less sweet taste, more cheese. Adjust to suit your preference. Then sprinkle some chocolate chips on top, if you like. Again, I didn't want dominating chocolate flavor, so I used only a few.
My dough was moist, as I said, so the parchment paper was very useful in rolling it up, like a jelly roll. Next time, I would press it out thinner, so it would have more rotations.
Slice them up, put them gently in a buttered casserole, and bake for about 30 minutes at 350-375.
Glaze frosting: confectioner's sugar with a bit of milk in it. I also added a couple tablespoons of maple syrup for deeper flavor.

Is this the best sweet roll recipe I've ever tasted? Maybe not, but it's mighty good -- AND it has one thing going for it that will keep it at the top of my list: NO RISING TIME. And when you want something warm and delicious in the morning, this is the ticket!

  2. Have you seen the new movie Julie and Julia? Your blog reminds me of it. A recipe blog. = D

  3. Belle - yes, I've seen that movie. It's my most-recently-seen, and one (miraculously) that both my hubby and I loved. I wish I had a recipe blog, but I think it would kill me to cook up a storm EVERY day :) Thanks!


Hello! I hope you leave a word ~ I will get back to it as soon as I can!
