Cinnamon Breakfast Biscuits

CCinnamon Breakfast Biscuitsinnamon breakfast biscuits are the craze right now.  You see them in the fast food restaurants and sometimes in the grocery store.  But these are better because they are homemade and made with cinnamon chips.  We frosted these because that’s how they do it in the fast food restaurant but it’s not necessary.

We used our just-add-water buttermilk biscuit mix but you can use another or a from-scratch recipe.

We added some brown sugar flavor.  You’ll be tempted to leave it out, and you can, but this is a very good flavor that really adds a dimension to the biscuits.

This recipe yields 12 to 14 large biscuits.  You may reduce the size of the recipe if you prefer.

If you prefer a sweeter, richer version fo this, try our Auntie Mabel’s Cinnamon Bun Scone Mix.


4 cups just-add-water buttermilk biscuit mix
1 cup cinnamon chips
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup cold water
2 teaspoons brown sugar flavor


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

  1. In a bowl, mix the biscuit mix, cinnamon chips, and cinnamon together.  Add the flavor to the water.
  2. Add the water mixture to the biscuit mix mixture.  Stir with a fork until a dough ball forms.  Turn the dough ball onto the counter and knead a couple times, if necessary, to mix the dough together.
  3. Pat the dough out on the counter until it is about 3/4-inches thick.  Cut into biscuit shapes.  Sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  4. Bake for about 10 minutes, until the tops are a golden brown.  Remove to a wire rack.

Yield: 12 to 14 large biscuits.  You may make half the recipe if you prefer.Cinnamon Breakfast Biscuits
