I saw a post on thekitchn and it intrigued me. Cinnamon chips? And gooey cinnamon biscuits in less than 30 minutes? Well I had to try them.
My comments. REALLY sticky dough. Don’t expect cinnamon rolls – which I think my husband still was even though I said biscuits. I didn’t get gooey – but I didn’t sprinkle 1 1/2 tbs of chips either. I did about 1 tbs cuz it seemed like a lot.
Would I make them again? Maybe. No one else in my family seemed to appreciate them – so I’d have to be really hungry.
Giant Gooey Cinnamon Breakfast Biscuits
makes 4 extra-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, divided
1/2 cup cinnamon chips (I used Hershey’s brand and had to go to several stores to find it)
3/4 cup confectioner’s sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Heat the oven to 425°F. Lightly grease an 8 x 8-inch baking pan, or line it with one sheet of parchment paper, hanging over the sides.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt, breaking up any large clumps in the brown sugar. Pour in 1 1/2 cups cream and mix quickly, just until combined. Dump the dough out on the countertop and pat into a long, thick rectangle.
Slice the rectangle into 8 equally-sized squares. Lay half the squares in the prepared baking pan. Sprinkle about a tablespoon and a half of cinnamon chips over each square. Cover the cinnamon chips with a second square of biscuit dough and lightly press the edges to seal. Repeat with each biscuit. Top the biscuits with the remaining cinnamon chips. (I forgot to top the biscuits with the remaining chips – maybe that’s why it wasn’t so gooey)
Bake for 14 to 16 minutes, or until the biscuits are barely golden on the outside and just cooked through. Remove from the oven and use a knife to spread and smear the now hot cinnamon chips on top of the biscuits.
Whisk together the remaining 1/2 cup cream, confectioner’s sugar, and vanilla. Lightly drizzle the biscuits with this glaze (you may not want to use all of the glaze). Serve and eat while hot.
