Quick Cinnamon Rolls

I got these from a neighbor this year for Christmas and they were wonderful and so I had to ask for her recipe, and this is what I got. These rolls, don't have yeast in them, so they don't rise up big like normal cinnamon rolls would, but they also take a lot less time to prepare, they were flakey, and oh so yummy! Thanks to my friend Namea for this one!

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons white sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter, chilled
1 cup cold milk
1/3 cup margarine
1 cup packed brown sugar
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/3 cup currants
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
3 tablespoons milk
  1. Cream 1/3 cup butter or margarine, brown sugar, and cinnamon together. Drop 1 teaspoon into each of 12 greased muffin tins. Reserve the remaining mixture.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in 1/4 cup butter or margarine until crumbly. Make a well in center, and pour in milk. Stir to form a soft dough, adding a bit more milk if needed.
  3. Turn dough out on lightly floured surface. Knead 8 to 10 times. Roll into rectangle about 1/3 inch thick and 12 inches long. Spread the remaining cinnamon mixture over dough rectangle. Sprinkle currants or raisins over top. Roll up as for jelly roll. Mark first, then cut into 12 slices. Place cut side down in muffin pan.
  4. Bake in 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) for 20 to 25 minutes. Turn out on a tray.
  5. To confectioners sugar, add enough milk or water to make a thin glaze. Drizzle over cinnamon rolls.
