Craving Hardees cinnamon raisin biscuits? Make your own with this simple and easy recipe for Bisquick cinnamon biscuits, the perfect breakfast sweet treats!
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, 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.

Tips for How to Make Biscuits with Bisquick
Ok, so 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.
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.
Mixing Everything Together
- First mix the sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl.
- Then add the biscuit mix and water to a large bowl.
- Before mixing, go ahead and add in the cinnamon/sugar, and then mix everything together really well.
Baking Cinnamon Drop Biscuits
You’ll bake the biscuits according to the instructions in the recipe card below. But a couple of tips…
- 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.
Then just bake them in a preheated oven, according to the instructions in the recipe card below, until they turn a golden brown.
Make a Simple Frosting for Your Biscuits
Meanwhile, mix up a simple powdered sugar frosting, much like my favorite sugar cookie icing.
When the biscuits are done and while they’re still hot, you’ll brush the frosting on the top of each biscuit, and let it melt into each biscuit.
Serve warm and enjoy every bite.
Alternative Recipe Ingredients You May Wanna 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.
