The dough was very wet for these biscuits at our high altitude. The cinnamon wasn't noticeable enough for my kids. If I make these again, I will lower the wet and raise the cinnamon. Still, not a bad treat for the kids!

The best biscuits I've ever tasted. Tender inside and crispy (almost crunchy) top and bottom. Make wonderful strawberry shortcakes. Try these. You will not be disappointed. I made them with low fat sour cream and they were just as good as with the full fat. I did slightly more than double the cinnamon but would leave as written to use with a meal. Very light cinnamon taste.

These are good!! The biscuit is tender and light. They have just a hint of cinnamon and they do go well with apple butter, thanks!!
