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.
