    Biscuit mix speeds you onto homemade cinnamon roll goodness.
    Alicia Ross/Kitchen Scoop


2 cups biscuit mix, such as Bisquick

2/3 cup low-fat milk

3 teaspoons sugar, divided

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

All-purpose flour for rolling dough


1 cup powdered sugar

3 tablespoons low-fat milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Heat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

In medium bowl, gently mix together the biscuit mix and milk just until a soft ball of dough forms.

Turn the dough out onto a smooth, generously floured surface. With floured fingers, gently pat the dough down and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of sugar. Using a floured rolling pin, roll the dough into an 8-by-8-inch square that is -inch thick.

Combine the remaining sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and sprinkle over the dough, covering the entire surface. Carefully roll the dough from one end to the other, jellyroll fashion, forming an 8-inch log. Flour fingers as needed to keep dough from sticking.

Cut the log into eight, 1-inch-thick slices and place flat on the prepared baking sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes, until lightly browned.

While the biscuits bake, mix ingredients for icing in a small bowl. Set aside until ready to use. Remove biscuits immediately and drizzle with icing. Serve hot.

Serves eight.
