Quick Cinnamon Biscuits

Yesterday we started school.  My niece entered the 11th grade at a nearby Christian school, and my three oldest children entered another year of homeschooling.  I wanted breakfast to be a bit special so I made cinnamon rolls and turkey sausage.  The cinnamon rolls are actually “Cinnamon BISCUITS” that look, smell, and taste just like cinnamon rolls.  This recipe is pretty simple and quick.  You use baking powder instead of yeast, so you don’t have to wait for that lengthy rise time.  All you have to do is mix, knead, flatten, spread, roll, slice, bake, ice, and eat.  Sounds simple, right?  :-)
Really, though, these Cinnamon Biscuits are a hit.  When I asked my niece how they turned out, she said, “These are homemade??!”
Try ‘em.  You’ll like ‘em!
