Cinnamon Fruit Biscuits
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 15 min. + cooling
I had these on my to-do list for a long time. Wish I would have skipped them.I made these exact to the recipe, with larger holes so the strawberry jelly didn't run out. Biscuits are not meant to be flavored and used for other things, except maybe dumplings. I didn't like these at all. My husband did, I think, but wouldn't admit because I didn't like them! Glad I caught myself and only used half the can for this and just cooked the rest normal. The initial taste was great. Who doesn't love cinnamon toast? But, once that was gone, it was a wonderful sweet outside, but a normal biscuit inside. The flavor just don't mix together in my opinion. I won't be making this one again.
I lined muffin tins with the biscuits then filled half with apricot and half with strawberry jam. Didn't have the spill over that some commenters had. Whole family loved them.
I found this recipe in Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet cookbook. I made the recipe exactly as written but my finished product didn't look anything like the picture...however...they did look like Danish pastries that we get at our local bakery....I couldn't get a whole teaspoon of preserves in the holes so used about 1/2 tsp, which was plenty. I drizzled them with almond flavored icing..I should have removed them from the pan and let them cool on a wire rack for the 15 minutes but didn't so I ended up having to forcibly remove them with a spatula...next time I'll remove them from the pan after 2-3 minutes and finish cooling on the rack. But they are DELICIOUS. It was hard to eat just two. Give them a try.
Great and easy recipe. Varied the jam with raspberry, strawberry and blueberry. Used 16 oz. can and needed a bit more sugar/cinnamon mix. Had some butter left over and drizzled it over biscuits prior to baking. Yummy goodness. Widened hole on top for jam so no spill over.
Tasty, even though 2/3 of mine "Failed." The biscuits in our tubes are often in odd shapes (trapezoidal, etc.) , without an obvious "top" or "bottom." So, even though they started with fruit on top, they eventually pushed it our or baked out sideways, pouring the conserve over the side.
I used cherry preserves and then once cooled, I drizzled melted chocolate over each one.
This is a "duh" recipe. Lol! So easy and so good! Why didn't I think about this? Lol!
Super easy and quick... yummy too when warm out of the oven.
Love these little jewels! So quick and easy! I had leftover cherry pie filling from a cheesecake that I was able to use up. Definitely needs the cinnamon/sugar though, because it's a plain biscuit.
haven't made these yet. How well do these store and do they have to be stored in ref?
