It’s Gooseberry Patch Giveaway Time Again!!

NOTE: Should have said earlier I will be posting the gluten free version tomorrow.  Happy Baking!


My friends at Gooseberry Patch have done it again!

101EERA delightful collection of easy breezy, toss together, in a snap, no-fuss recipes!!! My first recipe from this great new collection was all the things a recipe should be from a Gooseberry Patch cookbook! Perfectly easy!!

These really are the easiest!!! I added a couple of pictures to the collage showing how I cut my cinnamon rolls with thread.  This way they don’t get smushed 🙂


Easiest Cinnamon-Raisin Rolls

  • 2 cups biscuit mix
  • 1/2 cup raisins (I used craisins 🙂 )
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 4 T milk, divided
  • 2 T butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup nuts, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

In a bowl, stir baking mix, raisins, sour cream and 3 T milk just until combined.  Gently smooth dough into a ball on a floured tea towel.  Knead 10 times.  Roll dough into a 12 inch x 10 inch rectangle.  Spread rectangle with softened butter.  Mix brown sugar, nuts and cinnamon.  Sprinkle over dough.  Starting on the long end, roll up dough tightly, pinch edge to seal.  Cut roll into 12 slices.  Place slices, cut side down, in greased muffin cups.  bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden.  Stir together remaining milk and powered sugar.  Drizzle over warm rolls.  Makes one dozen.

I love GBP cookbooks, so much!! Thanks for the opportunity to enter for a copy of 101 Easy Everyday Recipes!!

Cinnamon rolls that are that quick and easy to make? LOVE IT! I will have to make these soon.

This looks like such a great, EASY recipe. I like the tip about cutting with a string. Also like the idea of baking in muffin tins.

I’m not big on raisins so was glad to see you used craisins. I was thinking of subbing cranberries for the raisins.


I love gooseberry patch cookbooks, would love to have this one. Going to try this recipe out. Love that you used craisins.

I also use thread to cut mine!

Our family meets at our home on the 1st Saturday of the month for Family Night. This gives us a chance to catch up with our children, grand-children, and great-grandchildren. It is especially special when our two daughters who live out of state are able to join us. I am not a very good cook so I really appreciate your cookbook Almost Homemade! I am looking forward to your new book 100 Easy Everyday Recipes. Anything Easy is right up my alley. Thank you so much for the little tid-bits at the bottom of the pages as well. I have gained a LOT of easy and beautiful decorating ideas.


sound wonderful! I plan on baking these for a Church breakfast bar. 🙂

Yum! I make something similar for a quick breakfast for my girls when they want cinnamon rolls.

these remind me of the Hardies raisin cinnamon biscuits. I want to try these this weekend. Thanks for a chance to win this cookbook. I am enjoying my time as new visitor here. Lots of yummy things!
