Recipe: Cinnamon Biscuits

Cinnamon Biscuits

I love the smell of cinnamon, especially this time of year when the chilly air makes me want to be inside.  My mom made wonderful biscuits and on certain occasions she made these cinnamon biscuits.  They are her take on cinnamon rolls, only flaky in texture and they don't take quite as long to make.  There is no waiting for dough to rise in this recipe.  Cinnamon biscuits are especially tasty right out of the oven on a Sunday morning with a warm mug in hand.  Enjoy!

Cinnamon Biscuits

2 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup butter
3/4 cup cream

Butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon, to taste, for the middle.  I generally start with 1/4 cup of melted butter and one cup of brown sugar and then sprinkle on cinnamon until it smells just right.  Add more or less as desired for gooey, cinnamon goodness on the inside of the biscuits.

Mix flour and baking powder in a bowl.  Cut in the butter until the mixture is course crumbles.  Make a small depression in the mixture (a "well" in baking terms) and add the cream.  Stir until moistened.  Knead the dough to finish mixing.

Roll out the dough onto a floured surface.  A paper towel helps to ease the clean-up.

Spread melted butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon across the top of the dough.
Roll up the dough.

Cut the dough and place on a baking pan.  Bake at 475 degrees F for 11 to 15 min.
