Bisquick cinnamon biscuits are simple breakfast treats you can make in a snap. Easy recipe for Bisquick sweet biscuits with cinnamon and icing.

It's been so long since I've actually had Hardees cinnamon raisin biscuits, but I still remember how yummy they were.

To make these cinnamon Bisquick biscuits all by themselves, you only need 4 ingredients. If you want frosting, which I highly recommend, you'll need just a few more.

We used to be able to purchase the actual Bisquick Cinnamon Biscuit mix, but our store doesn't carry it anymore. So, I kinda came up with my own version, using a regular biscuit mix.

These are drop biscuits, so there is no rolling or cutting out required. How awesome is that?!

It really is the easiest recipe ever (besides my Bisquick cinnamon sugar muffins), and it reminds me so much of that Hardees cinnamon biscuit I used to love getting with my mom when I was a kid. There were 2 to every pack, and we'd always share a pack.

FIRST OF ALL, WHAT ARE DROP BISCUITS?

Drop biscuits are just that. They're biscuits you literally drop onto a baking sheet and bake, no rolling or cutting out required.

You can drop the biscuit dough with a simple table spoon like I do, or you can use a large scoop for this. Whatever makes it easier for you, just go with it.

TIPS FOR HOW TO MAKE BISCUITS WITH BISQUICK

Making Bisquick biscuits is super easy, especially since the instructions are right there on the package. However, making cinnamon biscuits with Bisquick requires just a couple extra ingredients.

Those extra ingredients are just sugar and cinnamon.

While you can buy a big box of Bisquick, this recipe just uses 2 of the smaller packets of biscuit mix.

Each package of Bisquick biscuit mix weighs 7.5 ounces, so 15 ounces would be 2 of the smaller bags of biscuit mix, which equal out to just a smidge under 3 1/2 cups of biscuit mix.

If you'd rather have homemade biscuits, you can do that too. You'll just need to add the cinnamon and sugar to your mixture.

HOW TO MIX CINNAMON AND SUGAR

We make a lot of cinnamon toast in our house, or as my oldest likes to call it, poor man's cinnamon roll. If you've never had cinnamon toast, that's another recipe for another day, but your life will never be the same once you try this old school treat.

Anyway, I usually always keep a small spice container of cinnamon and sugar already mixed up and ready to go.

This recipe calls for 8 teaspoons of sugar and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. Just add both to a small bowl, mix it up, and you're ready to make the biscuits.

MIX EVERYTHING TOGETHER…

  1. First mix the sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl.

BAKING CINNAMON DROP BISCUITS…

You'll bake the biscuits according to the instructions in the recipe card below. But a couple of tips…

  1. Just drop the biscuits onto a baking sheet, about 1 to 2 inches apart. You can make the biscuits as small or as big as you want.

  1. Then just bake them in a preheated oven at 425° F for 8 to 11 minutes (oven times may vary), until the biscuits turn golden brown.

MAKE A SIMPLE ICING FOR YOUR BISCUITS

Meanwhile, mix up a simple powdered sugar frosting, much like my favorite sugar cookie icing.

  1. Combine the softened butter, vanilla extract, powdered sugar, and milk in a medium mixing bowl. 
  2. When the biscuits are done and while they're still hot, you'll brush the icing on the top of each biscuit, and let it melt into each biscuit.

Then serve the cinnamon biscuits warm and enjoy every bite.

ALTERNATIVE RECIPE INGREDIENTS TO TRY

There are a few things you can do to add even more oomph to this recipe…

  • Add raisins. The true Hardees biscuits had raisins in them.
  • Mix in chopped walnuts or pecans.
  • Or just top them off with a sprinkling of nuts.
  • Add a hint of caramel extract to the frosting.
  • Instead of caramel extract, try maple extract.
  • Add a little bit of orange zest to either the biscuits or the icing.

CAN I FREEZE CINNAMON BISCUITS?

Yes, you can freeze cinnamon biscuits baked or unbaked.

If freezing unbaked, drop the biscuits onto a wax paper lined cookie sheet of your choice, and freeze them for about an hour so the dough is no longer sticky. Then remove them from the freezer, and place the biscuits in an airtight container or freezer bag, and place them back in the freezer.

If freezing baked, allow the biscuits to cool before placing in an airtight container or freezer bag. I would recommend waiting to frost them right before serving, just so you don't have the added frustration of trying to keep the frosting intact while storing and freezing.
