How to Make Cinnamon Roll Biscuits

Making this delightful morning treat is so unbelievably easy. You’ll be shocked at how little time you’ll spend on them and how delicious they taste.

Start by spitting the biscuits in half. Many refrigerated biscuits come with some natural layers that are easy to pull apart. If yours aren’t pulling apart easily, you can slice them in half as well.

Coat each biscuit half in cinnamon sugar and put the halves back together on a baking sheet. I love using my cute rose gold baking sheet!

Bake the biscuits for around 15 minutes, or until they’re golden brown and beautiful.

Mix all the ingredients for the icing together and drizzle over the tops of the biscuits. Eat them while they’re warm!

Recipe Notes

  • Use any type of refrigerated biscuit dough that you like. I love to use the Pillsbury Grands because they puff up so nicely and have an amazing texture
  • Add some vanilla, almond, or coconut extract to the frosting to flavor it how you want. It will add an extra layer of flavor
  • These biscuits are best right out of the oven, so eat them while they’re hot. Lucky for you, they’re so easy to prepare so they won’t take too much planning to prepare.
