Reviews for Cinnamon Fruit Biscuits
"I think this is a great base recipe. I did some biscuits exactly as written, but others I substituted different ingredients in. For one I put in pieces of chocolate, on another I did a layer of cream cheese, then the strawberry preserves. I haven't tried the chocolate one yet, but the cream cheese and strawberry was VERY good. I'll be using this recipe again in the future, especially if I have leftover biscuits!"
"My husband is not a biscuit person. These are so delicious that he ate two of them. So easy and very yummy. Will be making these again."
"I substituted cardamom for the cinnamon and used orange marmalade in place of the strawberry preserves. They looked, smelled, and tasted wonderful. I will definitely make these again."
"Kids loved them! Preserves melted and ran all over."
"I used cherry preserves!! Yum! Will definately make again"
"Excellent for breakfast on Sunday Mornings! I use Pillsbury Grands and Strawberry/Blackberry Jam! My family loves them!"
"My husband does not like buttermilk biscuits but ate four of these at one sitting. They are so easy and are great as snack or breakfast food -- best served right from the oven."
"This was so simple and easy! A nice way to dress up a biscuit. Loved the cinnamon and sugar!I will be making them again."
"Was not impressed with this recipe. Was just a hot biscuit w/jelly. Would not make this again."
"These are very tastey. But the preserves melted an ran out onto the cookie sheet. I either used to much or didn't make the indentations deep enough. I would suggest using the Pillsbury Grands biscuits."
"My family loves these, I make them for snack with hot chocolate, cider or tea. I serve them at breakfast. Family favorite with omlets and a fruit salad."
