My husband has eaten these Easy Flaky Cinnamon Biscuits for most of his life. 😊 We used to make them a lot, but haven’t made them in a long time and he recently asked me to make them for Thanksgiving breakfast. They are super easy to make – prep time is just a few minutes and then you bake them for about 20 minutes.

You’ll need a tube of refrigerated flaky biscuits – either regular size or jumbo size. The biscuits below are the jumbo size because that’s all my store had available.
First, mix up some cinnamon sugar in a small bowl – mix a couple of teaspoons of ground cinnamon into a cup of sugar. I don’t really measure the cinnamon, I just add it until the sugar mixture is a light brown color. You can add more or less to taste. Next, melt about 4 tablespoons of butter in a microwave safe bowl. Pop open your biscuits and dip them one at a time into the melted butter and then coat them with the cinnamon sugar mixture. Put your prepared biscuits into a round cake pan. It’s ok to scrunch them together so they will all fit in the pan – you want the edges of the biscuits to touch.
Bake them at the temperature listed on the biscuit package (I think it was 350 degrees), but you will probably need to bake them a few minutes longer than the directions to get a nice crunchy coating. I let mine bake for about 20 minutes until they were golden brown. When they are done, remove from the oven and immediately invert onto a serving plate (like in the picture below).
They will have a nice crunchy cinnamon sugar coating, but be soft and flaky inside. They are great for a special, but quick and easy, breakfast treat.
I had cinnamon tea with my biscuits because you can never have too much cinnamon! 😉 They are also great with a hot cup of coffee or a big glass of ice cold milk.
I hope you enjoy these Easy Flaky Cinnamon Biscuits!
