I think I’ve tried every Pinterest recipe for campfire cinnamon rolls, and none have really turned out until this one. It’s honestly hard to bake over an open fire. I know our ancestors did it, but I don’t have their expertise and so far I haven’t the patience to master it on my own. My baked creations either char and taste like smoke, or they are gooey raw. But this recipe for Campfire Cinnamon Rolls actually cooked pretty well and was delicious. They stuck to the skillet terribly, but what I scraped off was perfectly edible, if not exactly beautiful. I will definitely make them again, as it’s a treat to start a day with warm cinnamon rolls! This was adapted from Chelsea’s Messy Apron.
2 packages Buttermilk Biscuits (Depending on your size skillet you may have some leftover) Frosting
1/4 cup butter melted
3/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 and 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup butter softened
1/2 - 1 teaspoon vanilla extract depending on taste preference
2-3 tablespoons milk or heavy cream

**A big note: I’m not a chef or even a great cook. I find recipes and adapt them to camping, but every campfire is different. If you think you have a better way of doing something, do it! After all, camping with kids is allllll about adapting and being flexible!
