The first time I made these little biscuit bites, I was just standing in my kitchen on a Saturday morning craving something breakfasty and a little sweet. Something that wouldn’t require a lot of effort and wouldn’t have a long cook time. I really wanted some of those easy bake cinnamon rolls, but we didn’t have any. Finally I just threw together this little recipe and hoped for the best. It turned out better than I had hoped. The cinnamon sugar coating had caramelized the tiniest bit creating just the slightest hint of sweet crunch that gave way to a warm fluffy biscuit interior. Andy was delighted, and I posted a picture of them to my Instagram stories. When I checked my account later that day, I had messages from a couple different people expressing interest in the bites and asking if I could provide a recipe to recreate them. After sending replies, I decided that it might just be easier if I posted the recipe here and then anyone could see it.
* 1 pop tube of biscuits (I used Trader Joes’s Buttermilk Biscuits)
* 1/4 cup granulated sugar
* 1/4 cup brown sugar
* 2 tbsps of ground cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to baking temperature indicated on the tube packaging. Line cookies sheet with baking mat.
2. Combine sugars and cinnamon in a large resealable bag. Shake well to combine.
3. Remove biscuits form tube and separate. Cut each biscuit into quarters.
4. 4 or 5 pieces at a time, place the biscuit pieces into the cinnamon sugar mixture and shake to evenly coat.
5. Place the coated pieces on the lined baking sheet leaving space between to allow for the biscuits to expand.
6. Bake the pieces per the directions on the back of the tube. My biscuit pieces took 14-16 (just shy of the 16-18 minute suggested bake time).
7. Remove baked pieces from the cookie sheet and eat while warm.
- These bites are fantastic dipped in apple butter 🙂
- If you can’t make it to Trader Joe’s, don’t worry; I’ve tried this recipe with Pillsbury Grands, and it works just fine.
- I would avoid buying the flaky layers type of canned biscuits, though. You want these little guys to hold together and the layers will puff and pull apart as they bake.
