Step 1: You Will Need:
1 10 count roll of Pillsbury Country Style Biscuits (I am sure other brands or styles would work, but the times/temps given may need tweaking)
Room temperature butter (for ease of use, cold is fine too)
Small bowl for combining the sugar and cinnamon
A baking sheet of some kind (I used a pizza tray)
Spoon for mixing and portioning, knife for the butter
An oven preheated to 425F if using a dark or nonstick pan, 450F otherwise.
I did not measure out specific quantities of sugar and cinnamon ... I used a small ramekin, filled it most of the way with brown sugar and a generous covering of cinnamon and then stirred it to combine.
Step 2: Prep the biscuit dough
Step 3: Top the biscuit dough
Use your fingers to smooth the sugar mix toward the edges if you need too. Then top with half a pat of butter. Centering it or not centering it is not important as it will move around as you work with it ... as long as the butter is on there it is fine.
Step 4: Finish your biscuit dough
This sounds easy, but it is a little trickier than it sounds.
I did not do anything to the top of the dough, but a light bit of cinnamon or something on the top would have been nice.
Lay them out on your baking sheet so that they are not touching. They do expand, but not too much.
Step 5: Bake and enjoy!
These will be hot, as anything is coming out of the oven, but treacherous with liquidy sugar. Let them cool a few minutes before messing with them.
They end up lovely and soft and full of cinnamon brown sugar goodness! Even if they don't stay folded over, they taste lovely.
This paired well with some scrambled eggs, and made a Saturday scheduled with chores seem a little less drudgy and a little brighter :)
Hope you enjoy!
