Sugar Cinnamon Biscuits

Last Sunday I woke up craving cinnamon…don’t ask me why. I’m random this way…

When I crave some food I just have to get it, no matter what I need to do, or I’d just feel horribly depressed and sad …

I’m not joking…I swear!

Now, a few days ago I saw this recipe on Tasty Kitchen for delicious sugar cinnamon biscuits and because they were very easy to make, looked tasty and I was craving cinnamon I decided to give it a shot.

The original recipe didn’t call for sugar in the dough, ….


Yes, that’s what I said…why are you yelling?

well, don’t worry, my sweet tooth didn’t allow that and forced me to add 1/4 cup granulated sugar to the dough

The result?

A M A Z I N G!

This biscuit are the best served with some ice cream or with a warm cup of milk.

This is how you make them!


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar (for the dough)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • plenty of cinnamon

In a bowl combine flour, 1/4 cup sugar and salt

grab 1/4 cup of shortening

add it to the flour and mix with a fork until it is all cut in

Add the vanilla extract

and slowly pour in the milk

Mix with a fork until you get a very soft and smooth dough

Roll out the dough onto a slightly floured surface. Make it about half cm thick

Melt the butter and spread it onto the dough

sprinkle the sugar

and plenty of cinnamon


Using a cookie cutter, well…cut into rounds…of course…

Place the rounds onto parcement paper

Bake at 200 C for abour 18-20 min. Let them cool down then serve!

I’ve tried these with ice cream, making like an ice cream sandwitch and they were divine!

Absolutely amazing even with a simple cup of warm milk tho

Give this a shot!
