Slow Cooker Cinnamon Rolls

  • Cooking Time:

    2–3 hours
  • Servings:

    8–10

Ingredients

1 can of bis­cuits (found in the refrig­er­at­ed sec­tion of your gro­cery)
1/4 c. melt­ed but­ter
1/2 c. brown sug­ar
1 tsp. cin­na­mon
1 tsp. vanil­la
pecan pieces (option­al)
<b>Glaze:</b>
1 1/3 c. pow­dered sug­ar
2 T. milk

In hon­or of Cin­na­mon Roll Day in Swe­den (Octo­ber 4th) (yes, real­ly!) I’d like to share a yum­my Slow Cook­er Cin­na­mon Roll recipe. Your home will smell deli­cious as they cook!

  1. Coat the slow cook­er light­ly with cook­ing spray.
  2. Melt the but­ter in a small bowl and mix in the vanil­la.
  3. Com­bine the brown sug­ar and cin­na­mon in a sep­a­rate bowl.
  4. Roll the bis­cuits in the but­ter and then in the brown sug­ar / cin­na­mon mix­ture. (Bis­cuit is whole so coat the bis­cuit)
  5. Place pre­pared bis­cuits in the slow cook­er and sprin­kle with pecan pieces, if desired.
  6. Cov­er the crock pot with a paper tow­el and then place the lid on top. (this will help pre­vent con­den­sa­tion from drip­ping on the rolls while cook­ing)
  7. Cov­er. Cook on low 2–3 hrs.
  8. Mix glaze ingre­di­ents in a small bowl (add more/less milk as need­ed) and pour over warm rolls.

NOTE: Face­book friend post­ed that she used Rhodes frozen bread and cut them in pieces and it was awe­some!

I want to try these. I’ve not had good luck with baked goods in a crock pot, so I’m hop­ing they turn out as good as they sound!

Car­rie, you and me both 😉 I’m start­ing to think it may be my crock­pot because heck, I bake pret­ty good in my oven. My lemon cake that I tried (bowl in crock­pot) was a dis­as­ter. So this seems sim­ple enough and if it doesn’t work, no more desserts in crock­pot even though they all seem so yum­my.

Do you use a bis­cuit like pils­bury bis­cuits? And do you roll them into balls before rolling into the mix­ture? They sound deli­cious!

I have to say this did not real­ly work for me. The bis­cuits tend­ed to burn in the bot­tom and took longer than expect­ed. I did not roll into ball (saw this in com­ments after­ward) and maybe I should have, but the over­all taste was not that great. Love all the crock pot ideas, but for me this one was not that good!

Just put them in crock­pot.… Will say I could have halved the but­ter and b. Sug­ar and still had plen­ty. Hope­ful­ly they are deli­cious.

I would like to see instruc­tions to roll into balls in the direc­tions (if I missed it I am sor­ry but didn’t find it)…do you cut the bis­cuits into 1/2’s or each bis­cuit is ONE cin­na­mon roll? Can an old­er crock­pot be used, one that is deep­er than the new­er oval ones? Mine is from the 70’s with a non­re­mov­able lin­er. Thx.

Hi — I’m in Aus­tralia and bis­cuits are dif­fer­ent… I am guess­ing your bis­cuits are more like scones? And how do you make from scratch because i can’t buy a canned ver­sion??

Jen
Guest

@Liz An Amer­i­can bis­cuit is almost exact­ly a scone. It is a non-yeast bread. We some­times call them bak­ing pow­der bis­cuits and are also very sim­i­lar to short­cake. The only dif­fer­ence is that bis­cuit recipes tend not to have any sug­ar in them. Most scones are sweet — at least they are in the US. Bisquick is just self ris­ing flour with salt.

Kathy Cornett

When you say roll the bis­cuits in the mix­ture, do you mean dip or coat them or do you mean roll while coat­ing them? Should they be a ball when going into crock pot? You did these the night before and put on a timer, right?

I made these today-they turned out absolute­ly fab­u­lous! I used frozen piz­za dough and prepped every­thing the night before, then cooked them this morn­ing. I defrost­ed the dough, cut it into 13 pieces, rolled each one into a ball, then rolled into the butter/vanilla mix, then into the cin­na­mon sug­ar mix. I used my hands for the whole process-it did get messy, and the but­ter mix end­ed up with cinn/sugar in it, but it didn’t mat­ter. Any left over of both mix­es I poured on top of the rolls inside the crock pot. I left the crock pot lin­er in… Read more »

i read everyone’s com­ments before i attempt­ed this recipe. For all those who need specifics (like i do at times) i used But­ter­milk Grands bis­cuits by Pills­bury. i did cut them in half and I squeezed 14 in there. 13 would have been com­fort­able but i didn’t know how to cook a ball of bis­cuit so i just squeezed. i did make extra glaze (i even added 1 tsp of cin­na­mon sug­ar in the glaze). i cooked them for about 2h 15m and they were still a lit­tle soft, but 2h and 30m was good. My crock­pot is fair­ly new… Read more »

This may be a strange recipe, but I’m think­ing of mak­ing these and tak­ing them to the in-laws’ house for Christ­mas morn­ing. They live a lit­tle over an hour away, so my thought was to cook them until they were just a lit­tle under­done, then when we arrived at their house, turn the crock­pot on and com­plete the process so they are warm and, hope­ful­ly, just a lit­tle bit gooey (my favorite!). Do you think this would work? Any sug­ges­tions on how you would do this? Thanks for the fan­tas­tic sound­ing recipe! I can’t wait to try it!

Devin, I think the timer she is talk­ing about is the timer that you would use for turn­ing your lights on and off when you are away. They are pret­ty inex­pen­sive at Wal­mart, Tar­get or any hard­ware store.

I am real­ly impressed with how these turned out ;i did­nt have any canned bis­cuits so i whipped these up http://www.crisco.com/Recipes/Details.aspx?recipeID=2333 mak­ing 14 kin­da thin cir­cles then pinch­ing togeth­er for 7 bis­cuits to get the lay­ered effect , then these baked in the crock for 2 hrs

Wow and YUM! I was a lit­tle wor­ried that this would turn out with gum­my-insides. I used 8-count Grands Bis­cuits and cut about 1″ slice off edge of each. Took three of them and rolled togeth­er two times for addi­tion­al rolls to help ease the fear of them being a lit­tle too much dough to cook well. Cooked for 2 hours and PERFECT!! Thanks for this blog

I was won­der­ing what size crock pot you used for these? So many recipes for var­i­ous slow cook­ers don’t list the SIZE of the pot to use, when I make things I’m always try­ing to guess if mine is too big, too small, etc.

Hel­lo, your recipe sounds appeal­ing. But, being Ukrain­ian, I do not under­stand the expres­sion “the bis­cuit is whole” (as in “the bis­cuit is whole so coat the bis­cuit”), although I do under­stand every pos­si­ble mean­ing of the word “whole”. Could you please para­phrase it so that I could under­stand what you mean. Thanks, and wish­ing you all the joy of cook­ing and inspir­ing oth­ers to cook and serve their fam­i­lies, too! 🙂

My crock­pot maybe one that cooks too fast. I was excit­ed about the “crispi­ness” I saw form­ing on the edges and it smelled so won­der­ful that I didn’t know in the mean­time the bot­toms were burn­ing! It didn’t turn out that well for me on the first try but I am deter­mined to try again!

I just made these this morn­ing for our a snow day with my daugh­ters. I cooked for 2 hours on low and the bot­toms burned. Luck­i­ly I had used the flaky bis­cuits so I was able to peel off the bot­toms and save the top, but I lost a lot by doing this. Next time I’ll try it out in my small­er crock­pot and check them after 1 1/2 hours. The taste was real­ly good though and my kids devoured theirs.

I’m preg­nant and woke up at 4:30 this morn­ing, and couldn’t go back to sleep. So I decid­ed to try these! These came out amaz­ing!!! The ONLY mod­i­fi­ca­tion is more milk needs to be added to the pow­dered sug­ar. I cooked 2 hours which was per­fect! If you are a sim­ple­ton like me and don’t want to make a bazil­lion mod­i­fi­ca­tions, just fol­low this recipe exact­ly! My 18 month old even got one as a spe­cial treat. Five stars

Sor­ry but these tast­ed just like the store bought cin­na­mon rolls by pills­bury. I’m not a major fan of the store­bought ones to begin with but do love homemade/fresh cin­na­mon rolls, but these did not meet my stan­dards. I am sooo glad that i used a lin­er for easy clean-up since 1/2 of them burned (rolled ‘em & fol­lowed recipe) & I checked on & removed them in less than 2hrs of cook­ing on low (set­ting on Low/8hrs in a 6qt pot). I could halve the icing and be fine but that is a per­son­al pref­er­ence.
