Cinnamon rolls are a dessert that I can eat over and over again without becoming sick of them. Throughout the years, I’ve tried my hand at a wide variety of delicious flavors. Even though I’ve tried them all, I’m not going to quit coming up with new and interesting cinnamon roll recipes just because I’ve tried them all.
Even though I’ve baked dozens of cinnamon rolls from scratch using yeast dough, I thought it would be easier to share with you today a shortcut that uses pre-made biscuit dough.

The best way to make a huge cinnamon roll is to follow this recipe.
Make the pears caramelized:
Turn the oven temperature up to 350 degrees. Butter should be melted in an oven-safe skillet or cast iron pan of 12 inches in diameter over medium heat. After adding the brown sugar, stir the mixture while continuing to cook for an additional one to two minutes, or until the sugar has mostly dissolved.
After adding the pears, toss them so that the sugar evenly coats each pear. Cook for about 8 minutes, turning the vegetables occasionally, until they become golden brown and become tender. Place them on a plate and let it aside to cool down.
Get the dough ready by:
Combine the cinnamon and brown sugar in a separate bowl and set it aside. Roll out each biscuit from the package until it is approximately 6 inches by 3 inches in size. After brushing each biscuit with melted butter, lavishly coating it in cinnamon sugar will yield the best results.
Slice the biscuit into three long strips, each measuring around an inch in width, using a pizza cutter.
Put together the cinnamon roll by:
To begin, roll up one of the strips and place it in the middle of the skillet. Repeat the process of winding more dough around the coil, covering it with caramelized pears, and caramelizing the pears until all of the dough has been used up.
Bake the roll and prepare the icing:
Put the pan in the oven and bake it for about half an hour, or until the bottom is golden brown. Mix all of the ingredients for the icing together until they are completely smooth. Wait until the cinnamon roll has reached room temperature before adding the icing drizzle.
How to be of service.
Everyone can take a fork and delve right into the griddle to eat this beautiful cinnamon bun if you don’t mind sharing it. If you don’t mind sharing, that is. If you want to display the roll in a more refined manner, you can cut it with a pizza cutter and then use a cake lifter to serve individual slices.
Serve this delectable dish with a dollop of vanilla ice cream as an option for a sweet course during brunch, or save it for dessert on its own.
The proper way to store any leftovers.
You may keep any leftovers right in the skillet by covering it with foil or plastic wrap and putting it in the fridge. Additionally, you have the option of transferring any leftovers into a container that is airtight. If you store it in the refrigerator, it will remain edible for one week.
You can also keep your enormous cinnamon roll in the freezer for later consumption. If you wish to preserve it in the skillet, be sure to cover it well with plastic wrap and foil before storing it in the refrigerator. It can be kept frozen for around two to three months.
You can reheat it in the microwave at intervals of 20 seconds, or you can throw it back into the oven set to 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 5-10 minutes.
