they are cinnamon biscuits!!!! and they were so easy to make!
I was really wanting to bake yesterday - but was out of yeast- not feeling like running to the store- I searched instead for a scone recipe- but was rewarded with this yummy sounding recipe from All Recipes, in their biscuits section. They were called Cinnamon Sugar Fan Biscuits- but someone suggested rolling them like pinwheels instead of the fan shape, so I did that- and added a yummy glaze to the top as well. BY FAR these were so simple- I made a second double batch for hubby to take to work.
Heat oven to 425 degrees.
2 cups all purpose flour, 3tblsp. sugar, 4 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. cream of tarter, 1/2 cup shortening, 2/3 cup milk
mix everything except shortening and milk in large bowl, then cut in shortening with pastry cutter until mix resembles coarse crumbs, add milk, stirring until just moistened. turn onto lightly floured surface and knead about 10 times, pat or roll out into large rectangle.
1/2 cup butter, 1/2 cup cinnamon sugar. ( this can be more or less depending on how much filling you want- of course I added more! LOL!)
smear butter onto dough, then top with cinnamon sugar- roll longsides into large roll, then cut into 1/2 inch to 1 inch pieces- the thick you make them the bigger they end up. I squished them down a little flatter with my palm.
bake on parchment paper for about 12-15 minutes ( until lightly browned)
cool slightly and make glaze to top them
glaze- 1/2 stick butter, 2 cups confectioner sugar, and a drizzle of leftover coffee. ( you can use milk or maple syrup or orange juice- etc...)
mix sugar and butter together, then add liquid to reach the consistency you like, drizzle over warm rolls.
Eat fresh- with lots of fresh coffee! hope you enjoy this recipe!
