1 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 TBSP Crisco shortening
1/3 cup milk
2 TBSP butter (melted)
cinnamon for sprinkling
In a bowl add flour, baking powder, salt and Crisco--mix with your hands.
Add milk--stir with a spoon until dough is formed. Flour your counter--place
dough ball on top of floured counter, then sprinkle the top of the dough with
flour. Knead the dough 15 times, turning as you go, then use a rolling pin to
roll the dough to 1/4" thick. Melt the butter, and then brush the top of the
dough with the melted butter. Sprinkle the top of the dough with cinnamon.
Start at one of the long ends of the dough and roll the dough up (like a jelly
roll). Grease muffin tins. Slice the dough roll into 2" thick coin shaped pieces,
and place one dough piece into each muffin cup (you should be able to see
the swirls in the dough if your put them in the muffin cups correctly). Bake at
375 degrees for 10-15 minutes until lightly browned. Remove cinnamon rolls
from cups--glaze if desired or sprinkle with powdered sugar.
