Quick Cinnamon Biscuits

Posted · 2 Comments

To make most biscuits, you have to cut fat into the dry ingredients, but with these cream biscuits, the ingredients are just stirred together and patted out, a process that takes less time and results in unusually tender biscuits. Quick Cinnamon Biscuits are best warm. Leftovers can be reheated in a toaster oven at 300°.

  7. Lightly flour your hands and gently pat the dough into a ½-inch-thick rectangle about 9 x 13 inches.
  8. Brush the surface of the dough with the remaining tablespoon of cream.
  9. Sprinkle evenly with the cinnamon sugar mix.
  10. Starting from a long side, roll the dough into a cylinder.
  11. Slice into 9 equal rounds.
  12. Place the biscuit rounds, cut side down, in an un-oiled 8-inch square baking dish or a pie plate.
  13. Bake for about 30 minutes, until the biscuits are lightly browned.
  14. While the biscuits bake, prepare the icing.
  15. Mix together the confectioners' sugar and milk or cream until smooth.
  16. When you remove the biscuits from the oven, immediately drizzle them with the icing.

    Made these the other day. Pretty easy to make. They look like cinammon rolls, so one might be disappointed that they’re more like buttermile biscuits when bitten into. Best eaten if not already too full, as they’re heavier than a cinammon roll. Very good!
