Cinnamon Rolls in a Snap

4 1/2 C biscuit/baking mix
1 1/2 C milk
(or use homemade biscuit recipe)

2 T margarine, softened
1/4 C sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/3 C raisins, optional

2 C confectioners' sugar
2 T milk
2 T margarine, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract

In a bowl, combine biscuit mix and milk. Turn onto a floured surface; knead 8-10 times. Roll the dough into a 12 in. X 10 in. rectangle. Spread with margarine. Combine sugar, cinnamon and raisins if desired; sprinkle over butter. Roll up from a long side; pinch seam to seal. Cut into 12 slices; place with cut side down on a large greased baking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, combine the icing ingredients; spread over rolls. Serve warm. Yield: 1 dozen

These do have a biscuit-like texture. Most of my family really likes them, but Mallory, who does not like biscuits, will not eat them.
