4 cups Flour
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
4 tablespoons Butter
4 tablespoons Shortening
2 cups Buttermilk
Biscuit Cheat (see last step in instructions)
6 cups Baking Mix (like Pioneer or Bisquick)
2 cups Buttermilk
2 tablespoons Vegetable or Canola Oil
1 stick Butter (melted)
1/2 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 cup Cinnamon
1/2 tablespoon Nutmeg
1 1/2 cup Walnuts (chopped)
3 cups Powdered Sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/2 cup Milk
1 teaspoon Orange Zest
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Line baking sheet with silpat mat or parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
With your hands, quickly mix in butter and shortening until it gets crumbly.
Add in buttermilk and mix just until combined.
The mixture will be really sticky.
Turn onto a well floured surface and knead 5-6 times, then shape into a disk. Don't go crazy here! Dough will get tough if over kneaded. Roll biscuit dough with a floured rolling pin into a large rectangle that is about 1/2 inch thick.
Brush top of dough with melted stick of butter.
In a small bowl, combine sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and a pinch of salt.
Sprinkle evenly onto the buttered dough.
Top with chopped nuts and press lightly into sugared dough.
Carefully roll dough, lengthwise, into a tight roll. Wet edge of dough with a little water and press seam together.
Slice the roll into cinnamon rolls that are 1 inch thick and place onto baking sheet with sides touching.
Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown.
While rolls bake, mix glaze.
In a medium bowl whisk together powdered sugar, zest, vanilla and milk.
Mix until all the lumps are out and glaze is smooth.
Glaze will be thin. Pour into a large spouted measuring cup.
When cinnamon rolls are done, remove from oven and pour glaze over warm rolls.
In a large bowl, combine baking mix, buttermilk and oil.
Using your hands, quickly mix together until combined.
Turn onto a well floured surface then shape into a disk.
Roll biscuit dough with a floured rolling pin into a large rectangle that is about 1/2 inch thick.
