Cinnamon Roll Biscuit Wreath Recipe
Cinnamon Roll Biscuit Wreath Recipe – Quick and easy this treat has everything you love about a cinnamon roll with the ease of a biscuit in the shape of a festive wreath!
Good morning, friends! Do I have a recipe that I think you are absolutely going to love!
This Cinnamon Roll Biscuit Wreath!
Isn’t it just the most festive little thing you’ve seen?!
And let me tell you, as cute as it is – it is so simple and easy to make!
Ready in less than 30 minutes, this has all of the deliciousness of cinnamon rolls with the ease of biscuits! Talk about perfection!
To make this simple Cinnamon Roll Biscuit Wreath, I start with my two ingredient cream biscuits recipe and simply add a little sugar to it to sweeten the dough. Once I have it all mixed together, I roll it out on a piece of lightly floured parchment paper.
Then, I pour on my melted butter and then spread it all around on the biscuit dough – just like you would for cinnamon rolls.
Next, sprinkle on your cinnamon sugar mixture.
Once you have all of your biscuit dough covered with the cinnamon sugar mixture, you’ll roll it into a long log like you would cinnamon rolls.
Form your cinnamon roll log into the shape of a circle to form the wreath. You may need to lightly wet the ends with water or milk to help the ends of the log stick together.
Slice the dough about 3/4 to the center to the dough circle.
Turn each of the cuts onto its side to display the interior of the cinnamon roll.
Place the cinnamon roll biscuit wreath into the oven and bake until cooked throughout and browned, about 12 minutes.
Meanwhile, whisk together the ingredients for the glaze. Then, remove the cinnamon roll biscuit wreath from the oven and allow to rest.
Drizzle about 1/4 of the glaze over the cinnamon roll wreath, making sure that each piece has a good amount of the glaze drizzled over it.
Then, transfer the remainder of the glaze to a small bowl and place into the center of the cinnamon roll biscuit wreath so that additional glaze can be used, if wanted.
I started adding it to the center of the wreath since Bart loves to dip the pieces of the wreath into the glaze!
This Cinnamon Roll Biscuit Wreath really is perfect to serve throughout the Christmas season (or anytime, really!), but we love it for Christmas brunches, parties, and to take to my friend who is not able to have yeast so can’t enjoy other types of cinnamon rolls.
But I have to admit that I love how quick and easy this festive little recipe is to make and serve! People absolutely love it and think you’ve worked on it a whole lot more than you have – and for me, that makes the best kind of recipe there can be!
Here’s my Cinnamon Roll Biscuit Wreath Recipe. I hope you love it as much as we do!
- 2 cups self-rising flour
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 1 - 1½ cups heavy whipping cream
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 cup confectioner's sugar
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 475º F. Arrange parchment paper on a baking sheet pan.
- Add the flour, sugar and 1 cup of the heavy whipping cream to a large mixing bowl. Stir together until just combined. Add more heavy cream as needed for the dough to come together to form a soft, but manageable biscuit dough. Pour the dough onto a lightly floured surface and gently pat or roll into a rectangle about ½ inch thick.
- Pour melted butter on top of biscuit dough. Spread to make sure it reaches the edges of the dough.
- Mix together cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle on top of melted butter. Roll the dough, beginning at the long edge, until a log of dough has been formed.
- Transfer the dough roll to the parchment lined baking sheet. Lightly dampen the ends of the roll of dough with water or milk and bring the damp ends of the dough together, pinching to seal. Form the dough into a circle for the wreath.
- Slice the dough, using a sharp knife, at 2-inch intervals about ¾ of the way through the dough ring. Turn each section of sliced dough on its side to expose the cinnamon roll filling and form the wreath. Place the pan into the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until lightly browned and cooked through. Do not overbake.
- As the cinnamon roll wreath bakes, mix together the confectioner's sugar, milk and vanilla until well combined and smooth. Remove the wreath from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes and then drizzle the glaze over the top and serve.
