  • 2 cups All-Purpose Flour 250g
  • 1 tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 1 tablespoon White Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Table Salt
  • 6 tablespoons Butter unsalted (85g)
  • ¾ cup Milk 2% or whole

Cinnamon Filling

  • 2 tablespoons Butter unsalted
  • 3 tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • 3 teaspoons Cinnamon ground


  • ¼ cup Butter unsalted
  • 2 cups Icing Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons Milk 2% or whole


  • Cut your butter into small cubes and chill in the freezer for 10-15 minutes to ensure the biscuit has the best flaky layers.
  • Preheat oven to 425°.
  • Melt your 2 tablespoons of butter and mix it together with the brown sugar and cinnamon until it forms a paste. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a food processor, combine the dry biscuit ingredients (flour, baking powder, sugar and salt). Cut in the frozen butter until it forms a coarse crumb dough. Add in the milk and mix until just combined.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough together until it forms a cohesive ball. Fold the dough in half 5-6 times, rotation 90° between each fold.
  • Gently roll out the dough ball into a 9x12 inch rectangle and evenly spread the butter and sugar mixture over the top of the dough.
  • Roll the dough into a cylinder along the long side. Cut the roll into 8 equal pieces and place in a greased baking pan or pie sheet.
  • Bake at 425° for 18-22 minutes - until fully cooked and the edges have browned slightly. Remove the biscuits to a wire rack to cool.
  • While the cinnamon biscuits are baking, whisk all the icing ingredients together until fully combined. Set aside.
  • Once the biscuits are fully cooled, drizzle them with the icing. Enjoy immediately or store in a Tupperware in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave for 15 seconds before eating for the best taste.
