I thought these were wonderful. IMO more like a scone than a biscuit. I increased the sugar to 1/4 cup and added a glaze (we like sugar!). I don't like how messy dropped biscuits look, so I light patted them into a 1/4 measuring cup and I got 8 well formed biscuits that fit perfectly into my 9" round glass baking pan. I turned the oven down to 400 since I was using a glass pan and my biscuits were thicker. These were just what my insomnia needed at 4 am. Thanks for posting!

I thought these could be sweeter than they were. Made for 123 Hits

These were excellent! I really liked their cinnamonny flavour complemented nicely by the oats. I used ordinary oats, cause that's what I had on hand and the biscuits turned out wonderfully. They were really easy to put together and also very quickly done. I followed Annacia's lead and baked them in scone shape, but half way through the recipe I realised, you may have wanted them to be cookies. That would be delicious as well, I think and Ill definitely give it a go soon. This is a keeper! Thanks so much for sharing, Hill Family! Made for Potluck Tag February 2009.
