Cinnamon Biscuit "fans"

Recipe by heatherhopecs

I found this recipe on the Betty Crocker website, and they look beautiful. They are a dessert biscuit, like a cross between a popover and a roll. I haven't tried this recipe yet but it looks pretty easy.

What yummy little rolls! I bet these would be perfect with a nice hot cup of tea, or as a bread side to a morning omelette. I was a bit confused about the assembly of them when I first read through the recipe, but once I got into making these, it was all very clear. The only thing that could make these even better is a thicker layer of the cinnamon sugar filling. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Fall 2012
