Bisquick Cardamom Rolls

I got this recipe from a Bisquick Cook Book...of course, I can't leave things alone so I modified it quite a bit.  If you aren't too keen on Cardamom you can replace it with Cinnamon....I switch it up quite a bit, depending on what I'm in the mood for.

Bisquick Cardamom Rolls

preheat oven to 400F

2 1/2 Cups Bisquick Mix
1/3 Cup Milk
1 Egg
2 Tbs Butter, softened
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
2 Tsp Ground Cardamom (or Cinnamon)
1/2 Cup Chopped Pecans--optional
1/4 Cup Powdered Sugar
1-2 Tsp Warm Water

Stir Bisquick, milk and egg until a soft dough forms.  Place dough on a surface dusted with Bisquick, roll in Bisquick, adding more if too sticky.  Shape into a ball and knead until smooth.
Roll dough in a 10x8 rectangle.  Spread with Butter.  Mix Brown sugar and Cardamom together, then sprinkle evenly over dough.  Sprinkle Pecans over top, if desired.
Roll dough tightly beginning at the 10 inch side, pinching the ends of dough into the roll to seal.
Place the dough seam side down onto an ungreased cookie sheet ( I like to use parchment paper).
With a sharp knife cut dough at one inch intervals, almost through to the bottom.
Bake 20 minutes or until light brown.
Mix Powdered sugar and water until smooth; drizzle over warm rolls (I sometimes do this twice!)

  1. I love cardamon in bread and the fact that these are sweet rolls makes them even better. Great go to recipe!
