The nice thing about this time of year in Phoenix is that it is Monsoon Season and we get rain! When it clouds over and rains, the temperatures come down a bit and it gives me a chance to bake a something if I feel like it. Yesterday morning, we woke up to cloudy skies and wet grass because it had really stormed the night before. Since there was a special meeting that made church start a little later than usual, I decided to make a nice, big breakfast for my family. Sundays around here are usually fend-for-yourself cereal!
My husband loves biscuits and gravy, so I made bacon, eggs, biscuits and gravy. But, now that there are only 4 of us at home, I got to thinking that we would have a few left over biscuits. I also thought about how nice it would be to have cinnamon rolls, but of course there wasn't time for those to rise and bake. So, I wondered, how about cinnamon biscuits? So, I turned a few of the biscuits into my new concoction and they were really good! I made a whole batch of them today so that I could show you how I did it!
First of all, I used my favorite biscuit recipe from my Better Homes and Gardens CookBook. This is a link to the 75th Anniversary Edition which you can get on Amazon right now for a really low price! There are many editions available on Amazon. My husband and I received ours as a wedding gift and it is still my favorite cookbook. It does make a perfect wedding gift! Now, click on the photos and see how I turned these biscuits into super delicious cinnamon biscuits!
I recommend using parchment paper on your baking sheet for easy cleanup. The cinnamon sugar mixture may drip off the top a bit and stick to your pan otherwise. I really like the pre-cut sheets like these.
If it were a little cooler out, I would enjoy one of these with a Hot Cocoa Bomb!
So, if you get a hankering for a cinnamon roll, but don't have the time to bake any, give Cinnamon Biscuits a try! They are super fast, easy and delicious! `
Cinnamon Biscuit Topping
3 T Butter, slightly softened
2 T Brown Sugar
2 tsp. Cinnamon
Mix all together with a fork until a paste is formed. Top each uncooked biscuit with about 1/2 tsp. of the mixture. (No need to spread, just put it in the middle.) This recipe will top 12 biscuits. Bake the biscuits at 450 degrees F. Watch out! They will be hot! (And delicious!)
