It's a recipe day!
I made cinnamon biscuits because it is faster than cinnamon rolls.
I'll give you my biscuit recipe, but you can use any recipe you like, or even a box mix.
Mix the biscuit dough as usual, except add a tablespoon of sugar. Roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thick and into a rectangle approx 10x15 (not exact, just a nice rectangle) Mix 1/2 cup of sugar with a Tablespoon of cinnamon. melt 1/8 cup of butter. Spread the butter onto the rolled out biscuit dough. Sprinkle with the cinnamon and sugar.( I saved about an 1/8 cup to sprinkle on the top). Roll the dough up on the wide side. Use a serrated knife and slice into 1 inch slices. Lay the rolls in a greased 8x8 pan. Squish them together if needed to make them fit. Sprinkle the rest of the cinnamon and sugar on top of the rolls. Bake at 450 for 12-15 minutes.
You can make a simple icing if you like. I mixed powdered sugar with milk and a splash of vanilla. Mix well. (I used an immersion blender) Pour over the rolls before serving.
Easy Homemade Biscuits

In a bowl stir dry ingredients together. Cut in butter til resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk all at once. Stir just till dough clings together. On a lightly floured surface, knead dough gently 10-12 times. (for the cinnamon biscuits follow the instructions above.) For regualr biscuits roll dough to 1/2 thick and cut with 2 1/2 inch biscuit cutter. Bake at 450 for 10-12 minutes.
