Sweet Cinnamon Biscuits

Biscuits are a breakfast staple in our house.  We usually make them twice a month on the weekends…well, my husband does.  He makes a mean homemade biscuit!  Needless to say, he was showing me up in the kitchen and you know I can’t have that!  I took his regular (but super awesome biscuit) and raised him a Sweet Cinnamon Biscuit. 

These biscuits are delicious!  Kinda like cinnamon rolls, you roll them out and put a layer of butter and then top with a cinnamon and sugar mixture.  Everyone knows what happens when you put those items together…can we say, MAGIC!  They don’t need anything, but a drizzle of honey will have you coming back for more.  Try them for yourself!

Oh, and don't worry, I'll put the plain Jane biscuit on the blog one day :)

2c sifted all-purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
¼ tsp baking soda
¼ c vegetable oil
¾ c buttermilk
¼ c butter, very soft
½ c granulated sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
honey, optional

Combine flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in a medium bowl and mix well.  Stir in vegetable oil.  Add buttermilk and stir just until blended.

Note: Dough will be very sticky!

Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth.  Roll dough into a 15x8” rectangle (eyeball it).

Preheat oven to 400F.  Grease a 9” round baking pan lightly.

Spread butter over the dough.  Combine granulated sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and mix well.  Sprinkle over butter.  Roll up rectangle, jelly roll fashion, starting from one long side.  Pinch seam to seal.

Cut the roll into 1 ½” slices.  Arrange the slices, cut side up, in prepared baking pan.  Bake until lightly browned, about 15-20 mins.  Remove from oven.  Drizzle honey over the top if desired.  Serve hot.
