Delicious Cowboy Biscuits

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Mimi in Maine

These are easy to make and they have very good flavor--yummy. There is no rising. They are between a roll and a biscuit. Our family loves them--especially my granddaughter. So good with homemade soup on a cold night. Have given this recipe to many people and they love them.

These are just fantastic--5 stars from us! They were good as rolls/biscuits to accompany dinner, then incredible a few days later when I used the rest of the batter to make cinnamon rolls. I used half the sugar, and used equal parts white wheat, whole wheat, and spelt flours to add fiber/protein. Since other reviews don't mention how they made cinnamon rolls, here;s what I did: I rolled the dough into a rectangle and brush with butter then sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon. I then rolled the rectangle lengthwise and cut it into equal portions. Because I like gooey rolls I put them close together in a pan (sides touching) I had coated with cinnamon sugar and baked about 20 minutes. Once cool I brushed on a glaze made of powdered sugar, a few T milk, and a few drops each of vanilla and butter extracts. Heaven! Thanks so much for posting, Mimi!
