This is modified version of the recipe included in Kevin Callan's book, Ways of the Wild: A Practical Guide to the Outdoors (Broadview Press, © 1993). The quantity given will yield eight cinnamon rolls, each approximately 2 1/2 inches in diameter.
Seal each ingredient separately for transport into the field. Pack a piece of waxed paper with the dry ingredients.
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.
