Recipe #8 - Cinnamon Biscuits

These are kind of a combo of a cinnamon roll and a biscuit - they are yummy.

2 1/2 c. flour
2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
2 Tablespoons Cinnamon
1 1/2 c. heavy cream (or half and half, for less fat)
Mix all until it forms a ball. Put on floured surface and roll into a 1/2 inch thick rectangle.
spread 1 tbsp. of cream over the dough rectangle. Sprinkle the "insides" over the dough.

1/4 c. brown sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg

Roll up lengthwise and cut into 10 - 12 slices. Place on ungreased sheet and bake at 400 for 20 minutes or so until they start to get lightly brown. Remove from oven and spread icing on top.

3 Tbsp. confectioners sugar
cream/milk to mix to desired consistency

Will I make them again? Yes. They are yummy. And they must not be totally fattening because there is no butter, right? Okay, so, if you use all cream, they are, but, if you use half and half, is it only half as fattening?


  1. One cup of heavy cream has about 50 grams of fat. No need for butter!

  2. GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! I guess it is good that I used only a half cup (all i had) and the rest was soy milk. Since it made 13 of 'em - does that mean like 2 grams of fat per biscuit?
