Copy Cat Cinnamon Biscuits


I love Bojangles, like deep love.  And I LOVED their cinnamon biscuits. Then we moved away from the land of Bojangles and then Bojangles did away with cinnamon biscuits. It's just all sad. So when I came across this recipe I knew I had to try it out to get my cinnamon biscuit fix.  These would be the perfect Christmas morning breakfast.  This recipe is adapted from Life Love and Sugar.

Cinnamon Filling
1/2 brown sugar
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
3 tbsp flour
2 tbsp butter (melted)

Biscuits
2 cups self rising flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp powdered sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
3/4 cup salted butter (very cold, cubed)
3/4 cup plus 2 tbp buttermilk

Glaze
3/4 powdered sugar
2 tbsp milk

Heat oven to 450.  In a medium mixing bowl combine the brown sugar, cinnamon, flour and butter then set to the side.  In another medium mixing bowl combine the flour, baking powder, powdered sugar and cinnamon.  Then using a pastry cutter or two forks cut the butter into the flour mixture. Once it's blended to resemble rough sand then stir in the buttermilk. Knead the dough on a floured surface several times then spread out to desired thickness. Cut your biscuits out then knead the remaining dough back together and cut remaining biscuits. Place the biscuits on a sheet pan. Make a well in the middle of the biscuit dough and fill with about 1-1 1/2 tbsp of cinnamon filling. Bake for 12 minutes or until the biscuits are cooked through.  While the biscuits are cooking whisk together the glaze. Let biscuits sit for 5 minutes then drizzle with the glaze.
