Homemade or Bisquick Cinnamon Biscuits

Crispy cinnamon biscuits rolled with sugar in the center are perfect with coffee for breakfast or dessert drizzled with a powdered sugar glaze. Easy like our Bisquick Cinnamon Rolls but more like a cookie you can grab and go when you want a bit of a sweet snack during the day.

Cinnamon Biscuits

Cinnamon sugar biscuits don’t turn out like our fluffy biscuits. Instead you will get a crispy bite with just a bit of powdered sugar sweetness in rolled into the center. If you want to try something different in the morning this is a fun way to tweak an old fashioned favorite. (affiliate links present)

Biscuits Cinnamon Sugar

If I had to describe the texture it is similar to a small round version of our Starbucks Pumpkin Scones. A bit softer in the center but for the most part it is just slightly sweet but not as much as a cookie would be. When it is Christmas time and we anticipate guests to come over I like having a variety of choices on the buffet table.

Also when I Host a Christmas Cookie Exchange this is something that typically people haven’t tried, and enjoy. I mean the old classics are great but a few of a bunch of different flavors are way more fun to try during the holiday seasons. Right??!!

Bisquick Cinnamon Biscuits

When it comes to the basic dough there are a few choices. You could make this as one of our Frozen Cinnamon Rolls Recipes by defrosting about 12, rolling them out and using that from the get go. Using Bisquick baking mix you can create a basic biscuit dough as well by combining;

  1. 4 cups Bisquick
  2. 1 cup sour cream
  3. 1 cup 7up soda
  4. 1/2 cup melted butter

For both of these versions you ONLY want to combine the wet and dry until it is integrated, NO longer. Roll out to 1/2″ thick, use the same filling/topping, roll up and follow the temp. and timing below. If you want to know How to Make Biscuits From Scratch use the ingredients below to make the dough.

  • Butter softened
  • 1 egg
  • Powdered sugar
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla
  • All purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 pinch salt

Filling

  • 2 tbsp butter melted
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
Copycat Belvita Biscuits

Copycat Belvita Biscuits

If you have ever had this store-bought packaged snack in the granola bar section you understand the texture too. Very similar and kinda’ a copycat version of those, or our Bisquick Scones. Tip – use a sharp sharp knife to slice these so the tops come out pretty and you can see the swirls.

  • Beat the softened butter and powdered sugar together. Add egg and vanilla, whisk together.
  • In another bowl combine dry ingredients.
  • Slowly incorporate into butter mixture by hand until you make a dough, do not overmix.
  • Very lightly flour a cutting board and roll dough out into a 1/2″ thickness.
  • Brush top with melted butter, sprinkle on cinnamon and sugar mixture ingredients all the way across and roll up.
  • Set into the fridge for 1 hour to firm up.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Slice roll of rolled dough with a sharp knife into 1/2″ pieces and set on baking sheet flat like you would do with sweet rolls.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes and allow to cool on sheet.
  • Enjoy as is or with a dollop of our butter cream cheese frosting on top

If you would rather make these so a soft dough forms vs. crispy like here it all has to do with the baking time. We will go over that below with the nutrition facts, total fat and total carbohydrates in the card itself once you jump to recipe below.

Crunchy Cinnamon Biscuits

Now let’s talk about How Long to Bake Cookies so they come out the consistency you want them to. We share to bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Now if you wanted more of a tender biscuit baking would need to be less, but keep a close eye on them. 1 minute will be the difference between a crunch and a sinking in with your teeth.

First thing you can do is to use a larger biscuit cutter, the larger the longer the timing and more likely they will stay tender. Second, decrease the time to closer to 8 minutes until the very center is no longer wet and outsides are beginning to crack. Remove and allow to cool on the baking sheet. Glaze options are;

Royal icing is a versatile and traditional choice for decorating cookies. It dries to a smooth, hard finish, making it ideal for intricate designs and flooding cookies. To make combine powdered sugar, meringue powder or egg whites, and water. Adjust the consistency with additional water or powdered sugar as needed.

Biscuits Cinnamon Sugar

Simple Powdered Sugar Glaze

This basic glaze is easy to make and can be flavored or colored as desired. Mix powdered sugar with a small amount of milk or water until you reach your preferred consistency. Add vanilla or almond extract for flavor, and food coloring for color if desired.

A glossy chocolate ganache adds richness to your goodies. To make ganache, heat heavy cream until simmering, then pour it over chopped chocolate. Stir until smooth and allow it to cool slightly before using. A tangy lemon glaze pairs wonderfully too. Mix powdered sugar with freshly squeezed lemon juice and zest until you achieve a pourable consistency. Adjust with more sugar or lemon juice as needed.

A coffee frosting or glaze is great for coffee-flavored or spiced baked goods. Dissolve instant coffee or espresso powder in a small amount of hot water. Combine it with powdered sugar and vanilla extract for a coffee-flavored glaze.

Drizzle a rich caramel glaze even over drop biscuits for a decadent touch. Make by melting butter, brown sugar, and heavy cream together. Stir until smooth, then cool slightly before using as a glaze. Almond glaze adds a lovely nutty flavor too. Combine powdered sugar with almond extract and milk until you achieve your desired consistency.

Can You Freeze Cookies?

Yes, you can freeze cookies, and it’s a convenient way to preserve them for later enjoyment. Freezing cookies allows you to make large batches in advance or store leftover cookies to maintain their freshness. Here’s how to freeze cookies properly:

Allow your freshly baked cookies to cool completely on a wire rack. Do not attempt to freeze them while they are still warm, as condensation can form, leading to moisture and soggy results. Place in a single layer on a baking sheet or tray, making sure they do not touch each other. This initial freezing on a tray helps prevent them from sticking together.

Put the tray in the freezer and leave them there for about 1 to 2 hours, or until they are completely solid. This step is known as flash freezing.

Once they are frozen individually, transfer them to an airtight container, a resealable plastic freezer bag, or another freezer-safe container. If you’re stacking cookies, place a piece of parchment paper or wax paper between the layers to prevent them from sticking together.

Label the container with the type made and the date you froze them. This helps you keep track of their freshness. Place in the freezer, ensuring a tight seal to prevent freezer burn and maintain the cookies’ quality.

When you’re ready to enjoy the frozen cookies, remove the desired quantity from the freezer and let them thaw at room temperature for about 15-30 minutes. For a freshly baked taste, you can also warm them in a preheated oven at 300° F for a few minutes.
