  • 1 1/2 cups Bisquick
  • 1 1/2 T margarine
  • 2 tsp cinnamon

Bisquick Cinnamon Rolls with Icing

Seal each ingredient separately for transport into the field. Pack a piece of waxed paper with the dry ingredients.

In the Field

Grease and heat a fry pan.

Add enough cold water to bisquick mix to make a firm dough.

Place waxed paper on a canoe paddle or other flat surface and sprinkle with it flour. Roll the bisquick dough into a rectangle, about seven inches long and 1/4 inch thick, on the floured waxed paper.

Spread margarine onto flattened dough, sprinkle on cinnamon, sugar and raisins.

Roll dough into a seven inch long log and cut into one inch slices.

Place slices in a frying pan and cook on low heat, turning frequently to ensure that sugar doesn't burn. When rolls appear cooked on both sides, remove from fry pan.

Mix icing sugar with a SMALL amount of water to make a runny icing. Drizzle icing over cinnamon rolls. Serve hot or cold.
