  11. After kneading and before rolling out the dough I cut it in half. This will give you small pieces to roll out, thus giving you small biscuits like poppers. I just packed them into a round silcone cake pan. This helps when taking them out (a lot easier). Also in my oven it took about 22 min. but oven vary so...
In the Drope family it is a tradition to make cinnamon rolls on christmas morning. In '07 my mom was in the hospital and i thought it would be nice to sure our traditions with the nurses that had been taking care of her. so instead of bringing store bought "break and Bake" rolls i made these. they loved them and mom said that these would be our new tradition.
