A cool spring morning with fresh-from-the-oven Cinnamon Buttermilk Biscuits with simple powdered sugar icing drizzled over the tops….What could be more enticing?  This week’s featured recipe is not only yummy but simple to put together!  For a little variation, add raisins or pecans or both to this almost dessert recipe!  But Cinnamon Buttermilk Biscuits are so yummy that you don’t need to!  I love to make these biscuits and sometimes double the batch to have extra (maybe…lol) to put a few in the freezer for later.  When I do this, I freeze them in individual bags so that they’re quick to grab on the way out the door!  Give em a try & please give me your feedback!  I’d love to hear from you!  Have a great week!  Lisa

  1. These are delicious! I made them without the sugar glaze and used brown sugar in the dough. I think I may serve them as a dessert with chocolate gravy next time. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us!
