Cinnamon Fruit Biscuits Recipe

Because these sweet treats are so easy, I'm almost embarrassed when people ask me for the recipe. They're a snap to make with refrigerated buttermilk biscuits, sugar, cinnamon and your favorite fruit preserves. —Ione Burham, Washington, Iowa
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 15 min. + cooling YIELD:10 servings


  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tube (12 ounces) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits, separated into 10 biscuits
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 10 teaspoons strawberry preserves


  • 1. In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Dip top and sides of biscuits in butter, then in cinnamon-sugar.
  • 2. Place on ungreased baking sheets. With the end of a wooden spoon handle, make a deep indentation in the center of each biscuit; fill with 1 teaspoon preserves.
  • 3. Bake at 375° for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 15 minutes before serving (preserves will be hot). Yield: 10 servings.

"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."
