Melt in your mouth cinnamon biscuits. Delicious hot from the oven with a cup of coffee. Good for freezing. Flour amount is approximate, make sure not to add too much or they wont be as soft.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl mix the dry ingredients. With your fingers or two knives, mix in the shortening or butter until it resembles coarse meal. Add the buttermilk, mixing in a little at a time until it forms a sticky dough, Turn the dough out on a lightly floured surface and knead a few times, adding more flour as needed until the dough is smooth and no longer sticky.With a floured rolling pin roll into a 1/2 inch thickness. In a small bowl mix the sugar and cinnamon. Brush the dough with the butter and evenly spread the cinnamon sugar on top. Cut out the biscuits, using a round or square 2 inches cutter. Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet and bake for 12 minutes or until golden and puffed.

Im really sorry since I hate giving these biscuits such a low rating! But unfortunately my ones had way too much baking powder in them so that they tasted only like baking powder and nothing else. I dont know if its maybe the brand Ive used (I live in Germany) since none of the other reviewers seems to have had a problem with this. I will definitely make these again with less baking powder and then revise my rating. Im sure they will be a full 5 stars then for they had such a lovely texture and smelled so nice and cinnamony when coming from the oven. Thanks for sharing with us, Mami Janine! Made and reviewed for Bevy Tag April 09. Update: Ive made these again now using only 2ts baking powder and 1/2 ts baking soda and they turned out perfect! Really tasty! Defintitely a 5 star recipe with these changes.

The family gobbled these up. Tehy were very simple to make. They didn't rise as much as I thought they would, but there was so much commotion in the house when I was making them that I wonder if I goofed the recipe or something. Oh well, they certainly tasted great. We will be making these again. Thanks Mami. Made for bevy tag.

Made these a couple of days ago but apparently forgot to review the recipe! Can't have that, 'cause THESE ARE VERY, VERY NICE BISCUITS! Did cut the salt back to 1/8 teaspoon, but other than that, I used everything indicated! Don't know about the coffee bit, but these were not only great right from the oven, but also at room temperature as a wonderful snack with some honey (even tried a couple with some homemade strawberry sauce ~ Oh, yeah!)!
