Glazed Cinnamon Rolls w/Milkshakes

What better way to wake up to breakfast than a homemade baked cinnamon roll baking in the oven and maybe instead of coffee or hot chocolate, a milkshake! Take your pick between traditional vanilla, chocolate or strawberry! This is sure a treat for me since I don’t make milkshakes enough around here. I think that is about to change!
I’m using Betty Crocker’s recipe for these, the only thing I altered was the raisins, but if you want to add those in, you can and I added that part in the recipe so you’ll know how to apply it. It’s not hard to follow along and it won’t be an all day process. I hope you try it out !

Ingredients for the rolls:
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2-1/2 cups Original Bisquick® mix
2/3 cup milk
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened

For the Glaze:
1-1/3 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk

Heat oven to 375°F. Grease bottom and sides of 13×9-inch pan. In small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons sugar and the cinnamon; set aside.

In medium bowl, stir Bisquick mix, 2/3 cup milk and 2 tablespoons sugar until dough forms. If dough is too sticky, gradually mix in enough Bisquick mix (up to 1/4 cup) to make dough easy to handle. Turn dough onto surface well dusted with Bisquick mix; gently roll dough in Bisquick mix to coat. Shape into ball; knead 10 times.

Roll dough into 15×9-inch rectangle; spread with butter. Sprinkle evenly with sugar mixture (add raisins as well if you choose to). Roll up tightly, beginning at 15-inch side. Seal well by pinching edge of dough into roll. Cut into 1-1/4-inch slices; place cut sides down in pan.

Bake 23 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. Remove from pan. In medium bowl, mix powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons milk until smooth. Spread glaze over warm rolls. Makes 12 rolls. ENJOY!

NOW, for the milkshakes! Take you pick which one you want for breakfast! I think I’m taking the chocolate! 😀
Real Strawberry Milkshake
Choco Malted
2 c. milk
1 c. vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Sugar to taste
Blend in a blender until smooth. Add more or less ice cream for thicker or thinner milkshakes.
Top with cherry (optional).
4 or 5 lg. fresh strawberries,  hulled
1/3 c. instant nonfat milk powder
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Dash of salt
1 c. ice cubes and water
Combine all of the ingredients in a covered blender and blend until the ice melts. Top with cherry (optional).
1 cup Chocolate Milk
2 scoops Vanilla Ice Cream or frozen yogurt
1 tbsp Malted Milk Powder
Blend ingredients in a blender or drink mixer and enjoy. Adjust the ratio of milk to ice cream to make the shake thicker or thinner. Making chocolate milk shakes with chocolate milk, instead of chocolate syrup, provides for a smoother texture. Top with cherry (optional).
