I've made cinnamon biscuits for you before, but I was intrigued with the fan presentation of these. Who can resist the sweet layers of cinnamon and sugar in these pretty breakfast fan biscuits? These look fussy to make but are easy peasy, lemon squeezy to make. A knife, a ruler, and a muffin tin, a bowl, and you are nearly there! Let me show you how.

Makes 8 Biscuits
For the Biscuits
2 cups flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup butter, cold (equal to 16 teaspoons, or 5 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon)
3/4 cup milk
For the Filling
3 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
For the Glaze
1/2 cup powdered sugar (confectioners' sugar)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
2 to 3 teaspoons milk (or amount required to drizzle)
Preheat oven to 425*F. Grease 8 regular sized muffin cups.
In a large bowl, mix the flour, 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in the firm butter using a pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through the ingredients in opposite directions), until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in just enough milk so the dough leaves the side of the bowl and forms a ball.
The the dough onto a lightly flowered surface. Knead lightly 10 times.
On a lightfly floured surface, roll dough into 12 x 10 inch rectangle.
Spread 3 tablespoons butter over rectangle. Mix 3 tablespoons granulated sugar and the cinnamon and sprinkle over the rectangle.
With the long side of the rectangle facing you, cut crosswise into six 10" x 2" strips.
Stacks strips. Cut strips crosswise into eight pieces.
I cut in half, lay the two stacks of strips in front of me, cut stacks in half again, cut in half again.
Place cut sides up in muffin cups.
Bake 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from muffin cups to cooling rack.
In medium bowl combine all the glaze ingredients and stir until smooth and thin enough to drizzle. Place the cooling rack over a large plate lor cookie sheet to catch any dripping glaze (I just rested my cooling rack on my muffin tin ~ no point in dirtying up another dish.). Drizzle glaze over warm biscuits. Serve warm.
I hope you enjoy these. These are quite sweet, but go down a treat!
