Sweet Cinnamon Biscuits

I keep all the new recipes that I want to try out in a big blue accordion file folder in my kitchen.  There are a lot of recipes in there!  I probably will not in my lifetime be able to make them all and I keep adding to the folder every week.  The recipes come from magazines, the internet, friends, the mail, family, cookbooks, everywhere!  When I’m in the mood to try something new, I just pull out the folder and find one that sounds good and that I have all the ingredients for!  This morning it was this one, not sure where is came from; it is an actual recipe card and all it says on it is “Grandma’s Kitchen”, I think it might have come in the mail.  These were easy to make and taste really good!

2 cups flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 cup oil

3/4 cup buttermilk (I just made my own by adding about 3/4 tablespoon of vinegar to the 3/4 cup milk and letting it sit for a bit)

1 stick (8 tablespoons) butter, softened

3/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 cup milk, optional

1  Combine flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl and mix well.  Stir in oil.  Add buttermilk and stir just until well blended.

2  Knead dough on lightly floured surface until smooth.  Roll dough into  15 x 8″ rectangle.

3  Preheat oven to 400.  Grease 9″ round baking pan lightly.

4  Spread butter over dough.  (I just melted it all the way and then used a brush to spread it over the dough.)  Combine sugar and cinnamon in small bowl and mix well.  Sprinkle over butter.  Roll up rectangle, jelly roll fashion, starting from one long side.  Pinch seam to seal.

5  Cut roll into 1 1/2″ slices.  Arrange slices, cut side up, in prepared pan.  Bake until lightly browned, about 15 – 20 minutes.  Pour milk over top, if desired.  (What?  Pour milk over top?  Really?  Sounds disgusting so I just made a simple powdered sugar and milk glaze, thick, and poured it over the top.)

  1. These sound yummy! Might have to try them this week. The muffins I was asking about were the crumb topped messy ones that had to be eaten outside. I will check through the blog… Love you!

  2. They sound really easy and look delicious! I also have a large file of new recipes to try and everytime I add one, I think “there are more recipes to try than time I will ever have”. That still doesn’t stop me from adding to it! =)
