Cinnamon Biscuits

Cinnamon Biscuits drizzled with a scrumptious glaze. Last Saturday morning I woke up with a huge craving for homemade biscuits, but not just any biscuits-cinnamon biscuits!

Tender layered biscuits speckled with cinnamon and topped with a drizzling of icing. You can whip of a batch of these in less than a half an hour, so what are you waiting for? šŸ™‚

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon until combined. Add the butter and toss with a fork to coat with the flour mixture. Mix on medium-low speed until the texture resembles coarse cornmeal, with the butter pieces no larger than small peas.  Add milk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.
  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 3 or 4 times, gradually adding additional flour as needed. With floured hands, press or pat dough into a 3/4-inch-thick rectangle (about 9 x 5 inches). Sprinkle top of dough with additional flour. Fold dough over onto itself in 3 sections, starting with 1 short end. (Fold dough rectangle as if folding a letter-size piece of paper.) Repeat entire process 2 more times, beginning with pressing into a 3/4-inch-thick dough rectangle (about 9 x 5 inches).
  4. Press or pat dough to 1/2-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface; cut with a 3-inch round cutter, and place, side by side, on a parchment paper-lined or lightly greased jelly-roll pan.
  5. Bake 13 to 15 minutes, or until biscuits are golden brown.
  6. While biscuits are baking, beat together cream cheese, 1/4 cup butter, confectioners’ sugar, vanilla extract, salt and milk. Spread on warm biscuits before serving.
