Cinnamon Breakfast Biscuits

Cinnamon Breakfast Biscuits - Better Homes and Gardens Recipes


Cinnamon Breakfast Biscuits at Over The Apple Tree

I have passed by this recipe in my cookbook so many times thinking I was going to make it one day. I finally did and it was great! I forgot to do adjustments for high altitude though, so yours might come out a little fluffier than mine.

1 1/2 c. flour
1/4 c. wheat bran
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c. butter
2/3 c. milk
1/2 dried fruit bits
1/2 c. powdered sugar
2-3 tsp OJ, milk or water

1. Combine flour, bran, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Cut in the butter. Make a well in the center of dry mixture. add the milk and fruit; stir just till moist.
2. Turn dough out onto a floured surface. Quickly knead dough 10 - 12 strokes or till nearly smooth. Pat or lightly roll dough to 1/2 inch thick. Cut dough with a floured 2 1/2 in. biscuit cutter.
3. Place biscuits 1 in. apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake in a 400° oven for 10-12 mins or till golden.
4. Stir together powdered sugar and enough oj to make an icing that is easy to drizzle. Drizzle icing over biscuits. Serve warm. 12 biscuits

The  first Better Homes and Gardens cookbook was introduced in 1930 and has been found in America's kitchens ever since. It was in my kitchen growing up and is still the place I go to look for classic recipes as well as new ideas on those days where I just don't know what to make. I thought it would be fun to share my favorite recipes that I cook for my family and maybe try some new ones. Some of the recipes I follow may be different that those you find on the BHG website just because the BHG test kitchens are always updating their recipes to reflect changes in America's tastes, techniques, and lifestyles. Any recipes I make will be coming from Better Homes and Gardens, New Cook Book(11th and 14th Edition) and Better Homes and Gardens, Our Best Recipes.
