Cinnamon Biscuits

These cinnamon biscuits come from my good friend Steph. She sent us this Valentine’s Day package that included the dry ingredients for cinnamon biscuits…

… and an awesome camera strap cover. She’s so crafty. Definitely check out her blog.

I kept trying to find an excuse to make the cinnamon biscuits and then we had a snow day. It was a perfect opportunity to try these out. We gobbled these right up. I used some cream cheese frosting I had leftover from the Red Velvet cupcakes to drizzle over them while they were still warm. I will definitely be making these again. And again. And again.

Cinnamon Biscuits – from Steph
2 cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 cup shortening
2/3 cup milk
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/8 cup butter
1/2 package of cream cheese at room temperature
1/2 lb. confectioners’ sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven at 425.

Mix together all the biscuits ingredients except the shortening and milk. Cut the shortening into the mix till it looks like bread crumbs.

Stir the milk into the mix and then roll the dough out onto a floured surface. Spread butter across dough and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Cut into 2″ strips.

Stack the strips one on top of another. (The smaller edge pieces may make up one layer to even out the thickness at the ends.) Cut into six even stacks.

Stuff stacks into greased cup cake pan and bake for 11-14 minutes. While biscuits are baking, mix together all the icing ingredients with a hand mixer. Remove biscuits from pan and let cool.

Icing the tops and enjoy!
