Cinnamon Biscuits

Breakfast gets neglected.  In our household seems like we're running to get to work on time, or rushing out the door to get to church that breakfast is always an after thought.  Cereal and granola bars is what we eat for breakfast every single day.

Over the holiday weekend, we woke up on Saturday with no plans, which never happens!  We were excited to do nothing, and wanted to start it off right with some delicious cinnamon biscuits.  I chose cinnamon biscuits because we always do waffles whenever we get a chance to sit and enjoy breakfast, and cinnamon biscuits are MUCH easier than cinnamon buns. 

These are delicious, rich and super filling.  

You'll Need:

2 cups all purpose flour
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups heavy cream divided
1/2 cup cinnamon chips (Hershey's was the only brand at my grocery store that had these wonderful morsels) 
3/4 cup confectioner's sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Step-by-step directions:
1.  Preheat oven to 425 degrees
2.  Lightly grease an 8x8 baking pan
3.  In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Pour in 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups of the cream - just enough to make it thick (but will still be a bit crumbly)
4.  On a floured surface, use a rolling pin to make a large square with the dough and slice into 8 even pieces
5. Lay four of the squares in the baking pan, sprinkle about a tablespoon and a half (more or less depending on your taste buds) on each biscuit. 
Next time, I will definitely add more chips.. I only did about closer to a teaspoon than a  tablespoon!
6. Take the left over biscuits and cover like a sandwich, only pinching the edges lightly to seal.
Tightly pinched at the edges
7. Pour the leftover cinnamon chips and poor on top of each biscuit
8. Dash extra cinnamon if you please on top
With an extra dash of cinnamon
9. Bake for about 15 minutes (mine took 16)
10. When the biscuits come out of the oven spread the cinnamon chips smoothly as they are hot (some chips will stay in the chip form.
11.  With the remaining cream, the confectioner's sugar, and vanilla whisk together quickly.
Yummy glaze!! If you have some cream cheese throw it in with a bit of butter for an icing consistency rather than a glaze!
12. Pour the glaze over the biscuits
13. Eat and enjoy!
Oh my word... delicious!!
