Sweet Cinnamon Biscuits

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by dayla

This is a wonderful treat for the kids on a winter morning when you want cinnamon rolls but don't want to take the time to make them with yeast dough. Very tasty and tender. I didn't try them with the milk but I sure like them plain. I got this recipe from Grandma's Kitchen treasured desserts cards. I hope you like them as much as my family does.

I got this recipe card in the mail a few years ago and have tried this recipe several times. Everyone in my house loves it! A few changes I make are to use skim milk in place of buttermilk and to use only 1/4 c butter, 1/3 c sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Those measurements are more than ample!!! Sometimes I also top mine with a simple powdered sugar glaze: 1/2 c powdered sugar and 2-3 teaspoons milk. Just drizzle on top and they are wonderful! My boys just said, "Momma, always make these again!"
