Cinnamon Biscuits

Rebekah made these for breakfast this morning.  Oh, so good!

  • 2 c. self-rising flour
  • ¼ c. butter
  • about 1 c. buttermilk (we used whole milk)
  • 1 Tbs. cinnamon
  • ½ c. brown sugar
Put flour and butter in mixing bowl and cut in the butter.  Add milk and stir.  On floured surface, knead until smooth, adding in a sprinkle of flour as needed to keep it from being too sticky.
Flatten out the dough and sprinkle on the sugar and cinnamon.  Fold over and knead together just a little.  Do this several times.  You can cut the biscuits w/ a cutter, or pinch them off.  My daughter just pinched them off.  Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 450º for about 10 minutes or so.

  • 2 c. confectionery sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla flavoring
  • ¼ c. butter (Rebekah always leaves this out)
  • milk
If using butter, you'll need to melt first.  If not, just put sugar and vanilla in a small mixing bowl and add in milk a little at a time.  Rebekah said she doesn't know exactly how much she uses; she does not like to measure.  =)  So next time, I'll watch her and estimate.  It is a small amount, so just add a little at a time until you get it the consistency you want.  A couple of Tablespoons?  I really don't know.
But it is yummy!
