For a warm place to let the dough rise, set your oven to its lowest setting for 2-3 minutes. Turn off, and then place dough in the oven, with oven door open.

While temp-tations® is also great for baking store-bought, canned cinnamon rolls, you have to at least make them from scratch once in your life! There is nothing like a fresh, homemade cinnamon roll straight out of the oven, and this recipe is one of the best! - Tara



  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 (1/4-oz.) packet active dry yeast
  • 1 cup milk, heated until warm
  • 5 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup Bisquick baking mix
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt


  • 5 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon


  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 cup powdered sugar


  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk eggs until frothy. Whisk in yeast, milk, and melted butter and let sit for 10 minutes.
  2. Add the remaining Dough ingredients to the mixing bowl, and mix into a sticky dough. Transfer to a well-floured surface and knead, adding additional flour, just until no longer sticky. Return ball of dough to the mixing bowl, cover, and put in a warm place to rise for 1 hour.
  3. On a well-floured surface, use a rolling pin to roll out dough, until it is a large, 1/4-inch thick rectangle. Spread the softened butter on the surface of the dough to start the filling. Combine brown sugar and cinnamon, and sprinkle evenly over the buttered dough.
  4. Spray a 4-quart temp-tations® baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Grab the short side of the dough, and roll entire length of dough into a pinwheel, pressing firmly as you go. Slice rolled pinwheel into 1 1/4 inch thick rounds and place into baking dish. It's okay if they are touching. You should have enough rounds to fill the dish. Cover and let rise in a warm place for another 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and bake cinnamon rolls 18-22 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown. Combine melted butter and powdered sugar to create the icing. If icing is hard, microwave 10-15 seconds to soften. Spoon icing over cinnamon rolls while still hot, and serve.
