Cinnamon Biscuits

Piggy-backing on yesterday's post about celebrations, I thought I'd share a recipe that I pull out for special occasions. I got this yummy recipe from my mother-in-love (Andy's stepmom), Denise.

For Father's Day breakfast I made a ham & cheese quiche, fresh strawberries, and cinnamon biscuits. I think it was a hit! Notice the giddy smile as he's about to dig in. :-)

Cinnamon Biscuits
Denise Wood

2 cups sifted flour
3 T. sugar
4 t. baking powder
½ t. cream of tarter
½ t. salt
½ cup oil
2/3 cup milk
2 T. melted butter
1/3 cup sugar
2 t. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 425.

Sift together the first 5 ingredients.

Add the oil and milk.

In a small bowl, combine the last three ingredients.

Knead the dough and roll it flat. Spread butter, sugar, cinnamon mixture evenly across dough. Roll into a jelly roll. Cut into 12 pieces.

Bake in muffin tins w/ paper/foil cups for 10-12 minutes.

Cinnamon biscuits are different then cinnamon rolls...they have more a biscuit texture and they are not as sweet and gooey. But don't read that and think they're not as good because they are. Just different.

Also, to add a little more sweetness, I doubled the last three ingredients that make up the "filling". You can also mix some powdered sugar with a little bit of milk to create a glaze/icing to drizzle on top.

Let me know if you give it a try. I'm sure you'll be hooked if you do!
