Slightly Homemade Cinnamon Biscuits


I made and shared this cinnamon biscuits on snapchat ( Tikaac) and have been asked over and over to share the recipe. Its so easy I almost feel silly calling it a recipe.  For the record the day I made these and took this picture I didn't have the Pillsbury Grand biscuits ( they are bigger, flakier and all around prettier). It didn't actually matter to my family but trust me the Pillsbury Grands are better. I mean if you're going to make them they might as well be picture worthy...right ???

* Other picture details: the tidbit plates and cake stand are both from Lenox in the pattern Millo Mello. Millo Mello is exclusive to Macy's. The best part is that Macy's always seem to be having a great deal. 


Cinnamon Biscuits
(from a can)...slightly homemade, that counts, right???

I make two can's at a time, why bother for one can? Trust me they eat the leftovers .

STUFF YOU NEED FOR BISCUITS:
Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers Buttermilk Biscuits ( 2 cans)
Butter, Butter, Butter
Cinnamon Sugar

2 - Cans Pillsbury Grands  Flaky Layers  Buttermilk Biscuits ( 8 in a can)
1 stick of Land O Lakes Salted Butter ( this is a personal preference..you need butter and maybe more than one stick, again it depends on you and your dipping skills. It's super weight watchers friendly...for me anyway, I don't like cinnamon)
Bowl of Cinnamon Sugar - put in a bowl, you will be dipping ( my family likes a 1 cup sugar/ 1/4 tablespoon cinnamon mixture...again its preference, if you family loves cinnamon add more or add less.)

WHAT TO DO NEXT:
1. Heat over according to biscuit directions, on Pillsbury its 350 degrees.
2. You do not need to grease or spray the cookie sheet BUT I STRONGLY suggest you cover it with aluminium foil or whatever your prefer, the butter/sugar/cinnamon get GOOEY and its a big damn mess.
3. Melt butter
4. Open biscuits, dip a biscuit in butter then in cinnamon/sugar mix ( flip the biscuit all around coating it in cinnamon sugar), then place on cookie sheet. Repeat till all biscuits are done ( on can of biscuits it says to place biscuits 1-2 inches apart, I don't  place them that far apart,  we like them to touch when done baking. Again its personal preference, I mean its biscuits whats the worse your going to do, burn them).

5. This is the tricky part and only that I never remember how long I bake them. The can says 12-16 minutes but it takes a bit longer because I mean HELLO we have saturated them with butter. Best advice I can give is to set timer for 15 and keep an eye on them.

The ICING on the BISCUITS

STUFF YOU NEED FOR ICING:
1 Sick of Butter
2 Cups Powdered Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
2-3 Tablespoons of Milk 

What to do with all that STUFF:
1. Melt Butter in microwave, in a microwave safe bowl ( please)
2. Once butter is melted, slowly added Powdered Sugar. You know what I mean, add a little Powdered Sugar, stir, add a little more, stir....
3. Once all mixed up add Vanilla
4. It will be thick, NEVER in my life have I ever been able to skip the milk part ( you know the milk is really just to thin it out). ADD milk but only 2 tablespoons at first if it's still to thick for you all add the other tablespoon. HELL add the gallon is if you like ( I wouldn't) but it is personal preference and all about how thick or thin you family likes their icing. You all know what I mean, we're not making creme brulee ( although I have a great recipe for that and it's much easy than you'd think).

When biscuits are done, place on a pretty cake plate, platter, whatever you like and drizzle with icing and serve. Save some icing, my kids love dipping there cinnamon biscuits, yours might too.

Hope this helps, have fun with it.

Love and Limes,
Tikaa
