Mmmm Breakfast Pinwheels

I made these as a Sunday morning breakfast treat last weekend. They are a super easy, super tasty version of a cinnamon roll. I got the recipe from Bettycrocker.com but I omitted the walnuts and currants that are called for in the orginal recipe. What the heck are currants anyway??

First I mixed up the dough and rolled it out. Then I covered it with butter, cinnamon, and sugar.

Then I rolled the dough and cut into slices.

I baked the swirls and then drenched them in the glaze. Mine didn't brown up too well in the oven but still tasted just fine!


2 1/4 cup Bisquick
1/2 cup milk
1 Tbsp butter or margerine softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
1/2 cup dried currants
1 Tbsp butter melted
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla
1 Tbsp milk
Heat oven to 400F. Line cookie sheet with parchment or waxed paper.
In medium bowl stir Bisquick and milk until soft dough forms
Place dough on surface sprinkled with more mix
Knead 5 times and roll into an 11X18 inch rectangle (or as close as you can get to a rectangle like mine)
Mix cinnamon, sugar, walnuts and currants in a small bowl
Spread dough with softened butter and sprinkle with cinnamon & sugar mix
Roll up dough tightly, seal edge
Cut into slices
Brush slices with melted butter
Bake 8-10 minutes
Let cool 10 minutes
Meanwhile in small bowl mix glaze ingredients adding milk 1 tsp at a time until glaze is thin enough to drizzle.
Drizzle glaze over cooled pinwheels
