TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • GLAZE:
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 5 to 6 teaspoons milk

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients. Cut in 4 tablespoons of the butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in milk just until moistened. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead gently 8 to 10 times. Roll into an 11-in. x 8-in. rectangle about 1/2 in. thick. Melt remaining butter; brush 1 tablespoon over dough. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over butter. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with long edge. Cut into 12 equal slices. Place with cut side down in a greased 8-in. square baking pan. Brush with remaining butter. Bake at 450° for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes. Combine glaze ingredients; spread over warm biscuits. Serve immediately. Yield: 1 dozen.
