Cinnamon Biscuits Recipe

Warm and gooey, they’re perfect for breakfast, dessert or a special occasion!

These would taste absolutely amazing with a side of Crock Pot Cinnamon Apples for Christmas breakfast!

Monkey Bread is one of our family favorite baked goods, but sometimes you want to whip up something a little faster.

Full of cinnamon flavor, these biscuits are drenched in butter, cinnamon and sugar. They bake up with crunchy cinnamon tops and gooey, buttery bottoms.

To make this a quick recipe, canned biscuits are used. You can use the small biscuits or the jumbo sized. I prefer the homestyle version to the flaky kind.

Canned biscuits vary in the amount per tube – anywhere from 5-10 per package! You’ll need enough for one 13×9 pan, which is generally two tubes of biscuits.

If you have leftover biscuits just bake them up later for dinner (or squeeze them in the pan).

If you don’t have quite enough biscuits to fill up a 13×9 pan, use a smaller size. They will be extra gooey and cinnamon-y!

One of the best parts about these cinnamon biscuits is that the recipe is flexible!

To make this recipe extra quick and easy, I just pour the butter over the biscuits in the pan, then sprinkle with the cinnamon-sugar.

If you want every side coated, you can dip each one in melted butter then roll in sugar like you would with monkey bread.

For me, I just like to pour, sprinkle and bake. Easy as 1, 2, 3!

While the biscuits are baking whip up a quick cream cheese icing.

Be sure the cream cheese is well softened and you won’t need any hand mixer for this frosting.

I do like to take the extra step of sifting my powdered sugar so there aren’t any lumps, but a few lumps never hurt anyone.

Let the biscuits cool for about 5 minutes after removing from the oven, but be sure to frost them while they’re still warm.

This helps it melt into a luscious glaze!

These are best served immediately, but we ate leftovers the next day and they were still delicious.

Simply rewarm in the microwave for a few seconds to soften and enjoy!

Cinnamon biscuits are semi-homemade treats, a delicious cross between cinnamon rolls and monkey bread. The cream cheese glaze makes them extra irresistible!
