Cinnamon Biscuits without the Drive Thru Line

We're fans of Jiffy Buttermilk Biscuit Mix. The biscuits are great whether made with water, milk, or, best of all, buttermilk. They're good plain, baked with chunks of cheese in them, or as fluffy soup dumplings.  But on a weekend morning they are great for cinnamon biscuits.

  • 1 8-oz. box buttermilk biscuit mix
  • 1/2 cup water, milk, or buttermilk
  • 4 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1-2 Tablespoons flour
  • 2 wedges Laughing Cow Lite Swiss Cheese (alternatively use cream cheese or Neufchatel)
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 3 Tablespoons powdered sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F
  2. Mix biscuit mix and water until the mix is moistened
  3. Roll the biscuit mix out into a 12-inch square
  4. Mix the melted butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and flour into a paste and spread it out on the square of dough
  5. Roll the square up and use the palms of your hands to flatten the ends so that it is a neat cylinder
  6. Cut into 8 slices and place them in an ungreased pie plate, baking pan, or glass cake pan.
  7. Bake 10-12 minutes.
  8. Mix the cheese, milk and powdered sugar into a loose glaze.  Spoon this over the  hot biscuits.
  9. When cool enough to "inhale" them, do so.

Imprecise & Inexpensive

Two themes predominate in my approach to cooking. 1. Daily cooking of flavorful food need not be a precise art. 2. You can be an adventurous cook on a budget. Cooking and eating should be fun for both cookers and eaters.
