Cinnamon Breakfast Biscuits

Good Morning All!

Hope you had a wonderful weekend.  At our house things were busy yet restful at the same time - - the perfect weekend.

Today I'd like to share with you a well loved recipe from our home that I have been meaning to post about this whole winter. 

During the colder months of the year I love to make my girls a warm breakfast to start off the day and this is one recipe that I turn to at least once a week for something quick and easy.

Cinnamon Breakfast Biscuits

3 cups bisquick mix (or homemade version)
3/4 cup Milk
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 cup raisins (optional)

Mix together bisquick mix, milk, cinnamon and raisins until dough forms.  Either use a biscuit cutter to shape the dough or use the drop biscuit method to form dough into eight biscuits.

Bake at 450 for 15 minutes.

Allow to cool and top with a powdered sugar glaze.

Powdered Sugar Glaze

1 cup powdered sugar
2 TBLS. water

Mix together well

First gather your supplies, and mix together both the Bisquick and cinnamon.  In the past I have used both store bought Bisquick mix and a homemade version.  Both work great.

 Next add the milk and mix just a little until the dough forms.

At this point you have two choices.  Either make drop biscuits - the super quick version or use a biscuit cutter - - the longer version.

Most day's I prefer the drop biscuit method since it takes less than a minute.  Simply take your mixing spoon and scoop out some dough and plop it onto your baking pan.  If I think the biscuit needs a little extra forming I'll quickly squish the dough into a ball like form and I'm done.

Today I wanted my biscuits to look pretty so I chose to use my vintage biscuit cutter to form the biscuits.  I simply dumped my bowl of dough onto the counter and used my hands to squish it all together in a clump that was about two inches thick.

I followed the same method until all my dough was formed into biscuit shapes.

After baking them for fifteen minutes at 450, I let them cool about five minutes and then drizzle a simple powdered sugar glaze over the top.

Served with some fresh fruit and a little milk or orange juice it makes a quick and very tasty breakfast.

Hope you enjoyed!
