Healthy Meals in Minutes Recipe cards - cinnamon rolls

I' m looking for a cinnamon roll recipe from the Healthy Meals in Minutes cards. It doesn't seem to be the cinnamon rolls that are in the Breakfast or muffin section. I think it may have been one of the very first cards I received, kind of like a teaser set, where the company sends you the most scrumptious cards first so that you'll purchase the rest (which I did,and am glad). These rolls are very simple make; there's no yeast, no yogurt, to raisins, etc. Just flour, butter, milk - you spread a bunch of butter on the rolled out dough and sprinkle cinn./sugar mixture on top, roll up and cut. Does this sound familiar to anyone. I lost this card and it is the recipe I use every Christmas morning. Help, help! please! :)

  1. It sounds similar to this (paraphrased) recipe from "Company's Coming Muffins and More".

    Jiffy Cinnamon Rolls

    2 cups flour
    2 Tbsp. sugar
    4 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp. salt
    1/4 cup cold butter

    Blend these ingredients together until crumbly, make well in center and add:

    1 cup cold milk.

    Mix dough, turn out of floured space and knead about 8-10 times.

    Roll into 12" long recatangle about 1/3 inch thick.

    Filling:

    1/3 cup butter
    1 cup packed brown sugar
    3 tsp. cinnamon
    1/3 cup raisins or currants (optional)
    Mix together first 3 ingredients, place 1 tsp. of filling in bottom of each of the 12 well sprayed or greased muffin tins. Spread the remaining filling on the recangle of dough and roll as a jelly roll. Mark, then cut roll into 12 even rolls and place cut side down in the muffin tins. Bake 375° for 18-20 min.

    When cooked, turn out on rack to cool.

    1. I found this and even though it is past Christmas wanted to send it your way just click on pic to see recipe card

        Hi. I don't know if bettib will get this or not, but here goes. I saw the post you sent regarding cinnamon rolls and wondered if you could maybe help me out too? I have been searching high and low for my favourite recipe from the same collection. I could be wrong, but I believe it is called Stir Fry Vera cruise. It is a veggie dish containing corn, zucchini, black beans, hot sauce, tomatoes, mmmm! If you know of it could you send me some pointers on recreating it. I can't find a similar recipe anywhere. I'd be soooo greatful,

                  POSTED THE STIR FRY RECIPE MY SCANNER ISN'T WORKING SO IF YOU HAVE ANY ? I WILL ANSWER

                  1. re: mamama

                    Hi. Sorry just checked my e-mail. Thanks so much, could you post the calorie amount, and number of servings too, please, I use these recipees for wieght loss, to great success and this is a favourite. Just to con firm is the missing recipee Simple chicken Lasagna #169 ?

              2. I have pre 1996 recipe cards. The "Cinnamon Rolls" recipe has raisins in it. There's another one called "Early Morning Coffee Rolls", maybe that's the one you're looking for?

                 
                 
                1. I have a card #18 in the breakfast section, Easy morning coffee rolls... sounds familiar. The cinnamon rolls I have call for yogurt and rasins and stuff. but this one doesnt.. Maybe this is the one you are looking for? You roll it up and cut it. But it does call for pecans. Let me know at erin.m.shane@gmail.com and i will scan it in and send it for you.

                  1. i'm looking for the Healthy Meals in Minute Recipe card of Meatloaf, not the italian one.
