Easy, Quick Cinnamon Roll Biscuits

On Saturday I decided to make these oh-so-delicious gooey, yummy Cinnamon Roll Biscuits.  They most certainly did not disappoint!  I worked from this recipe, but had to make a few changes due to the fact that the recipe calls for cinnamon chips.   I've never seen cinnamon chips, have you?  Apparently they are just like chocolate chips but made out of cinnamon.  You can buy them here, but I didn't feel like waiting for them to come in the mail.  So I improvised :>)

The nice thing about these biscuits is the quick preparation and cook time - I made these in about half an hour.  And most of the ingredients we have on hand at all times.

Cinnamon Roll Biscuits
makes 4 large biscuits

2 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups light or heavy cream
ground cinnamon (or 1/2 cup cinnamon chips)
2 tablespoons melted butter (not needed if using chips)
3/4 cup confectioner's sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Heat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.  Lightly grease an 8x8 baking dish, or line the dish with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.  Pour in 1.5 cups cream and mix quickly.  **I'm used to making pizza dough and bread dough.  This biscuit dough is A LOT gooey-er (?) than pizza/bread dough.  Just go with it.  It's ok.

Divide dough in half.  Lay 1 portion in baking dish and pat out flat.  Brush on a little of the melted butter, then sprinkle on a generous amount of cinnamon (this is all based on how much cinnamon you like on your rolls!)  The butter helps the cinnamon stick.

Lay the other half of dough on top, and push out flat.  Brush melted butter on top, and sprinkle generously with more cinnamon.

Bake for 14-16 minutes until the biscuits are barely golden on the outside and just cooked through.  Remove from the oven.

Whisk together the 1/2 cup of cream, confectioner's sugar, and vanilla.  Lightly drizzle the biscuits with this glaze.  Serve hot.
