Quick and Easy Cinnamon Butter Buns

land o lakes cinnamon sugar butter

When Land o’ Lakes and Betty Crocker asked me to try out their new Cinnamon Sugar Butter Spread and create a recipe using it, I jumped at the chance. Butter? Cinnamon Sugar? Yes please. Sign me up. This new butter is the perfect balance of spice and sweet and the perfect spreading consistency. Perfect on toast, pancakes, even on corn. It will have a permanent spot on my grocery list from now on.

If you have been following this blog, then you know that I make most everything from scratch. While I love being able to do that, it is not always possible. It takes time and planning, and those are two things that I can sometimes be short on. On most Saturdays, we have cinnamon rolls for breakfast before we do our big weekly house clean. When I am short on time, this Cinnamon Butter Bun has become a staple in our house. It takes longer to preheat the oven than it does to get these ready to bake off. Simply roll out your biscuit dough, spread with the Cinnamon Sugar Butter, roll, cut and bake. Simple and delicious.

Check out what the other Betty Crocker bloggers made with their Cinnamon Sugar Butter Spread.

  • Woo hoo! It looks like the website is back! I even went to the Caramel Pecan Brownies, whose pictures were gone yesterday, AND THEY ARE BACK!!! Bless the nerd that you found, or perhaps yourself, who worked the magic!

    Have a great weekend! 🙂

  • Searching in CA stores for this new butter blend. Brilliant idea! Can’t wait to try this recipe and take them to share with my co workers (my guinnea pigs ;-). I make monkey bread, family and friends go crazy for it but love the presentation of these rolls. Thanks Bree for your inspiring recipes.

  • These look delicious! And so simple! If only I could make them this easily using ingredients I can get here in the UK. I will definitely be hunting for alternatives

  • Hello! I know this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask. Does managing a well-established blog such as yours require a lot of work? I am completely new to blogging however I do write in my journal on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

      • Hello, I read your recipe and saw your pics. I am unsure how you cut each bisquit into 3’s. Wish there was a pic for that as well. I really want to make these for my aunt who is coming over for coffee in the morning. I might give them a try. If you get the chance, can you repost this recipe with a pic of the 3 sections and how you cut them exactly? thanks

        • There is a picture. You roll it out, spread the butter, roll it back up and cut it into 3 pieces.
