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.

Craisins would be my choice too! Or maybe dried blueberries or cherries…

That sounds like my kind of recipe!

This recipe looks amazing and easy to make! 🙂


I can almost smell the cinnamon just looking at the pictures! Love the idea of cutting the rolls with thread.


They look yummy! Just might have to try this recipe… 🙂


These cinnamon rolls look so good and using the string is such a great ideal to cut the rolls with. I am going to try it soon. I like making these rolls with biscuit mix.

As soon as I saw this recipe on facebook I thought I cannot wait to try. I love to bake, but sometimes I want something fast and easy and these are just what I have been waiting for. Cinnamon Rolls quick AND easy who would have thought it!! Thanks Gooseberry


These look wonderful and so easy. I will make them this weekend for a birthday brunch we’re hosting on Sunday.

I’m not much of a baker, but these look easy enough for me to successfully make.

Wow, can’t wait to try this recipe!

I needed to bring something for this weekends family gathering..these look just right..thank you!


These look so yummy. Thank you for helping us remember how good it is to cook for our families.


Looks easy and delicious!!


These sound delicious. Must try them soon.


I still love the taste of homemade but with my lupus I cannot stand and fuss for long periods of time! I will be making these for my grandchildren. At 60 my mind is willing but the body says NO. With this book I can say YES!

I’d love to try this!


Love that there is no rising time to wait for!!

Patt Losiewicz

These cinnamon rolls look super yummy can’t wait to try them this weekend


I’m so gonna try these!! The string is a genius idea!!


These look fantastic–I love gooey cinnamon rolls. Great tip with the thread for cutting.

These are sure a lot faster and easier then the old way I use to make my cinnamon rolls and the sour cream keeps them moist! YUM! Also if you melt a tablespoon of butter in the bottom of each muffin tin, add a tablespoon of brown sugar and some crushed pecans? Instant sticky buns!!!

Teresa Feiss

These look delicious. Can’t wait to try them. I appreciate the pictures after the steps involved.

Mary Coleman

Wow!!! Anything with cinnamon I love!!! Especially cinnamon rolls hot out of the oven. Yummmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can’t wait to make these. My family loves em too..thanks for the recipe.

Those look really good, and easy to do. Think I might pick up some gluten free biscuit mix and see if it will work for me. 🙂


I love Gooseberry Patch cookbooks….I would love to be able to add this one to my collection!

Nancy Bowen

These rolls look delicious! Can’t wait to try them! And this cookbook is right up my alley—easy, no fuss, and delicious! Between working and carign for our three year old granddaughter, there isn’t a lot of time for time consuming recipes. And we aren’t “fancy food” eaters, either–meat and potatoes with a touch of class. Can’t wait for maore recipes!


Yummmmm! Thanks for sharing! : )
