Recipe: Cinnamon Biscuit Balls

With three busy girls and a busy family life, I am always looking for quick recipes that I can make to change up our snacks and breakfasts.  My girls love to eat muffins and biscuits so I when I came across this recipe on Karly's blog, Buns in My Oven, I thought it would be a great alternative...and it was!  Not only was it delicious but it was super easy to make because it is made with a baking mix and only required a few ingredients.  My girls loved them and I was happy to have a homemade treat to put in their lunches.  Next time I make them, I will try dipping them in caramel sauce as Karly suggests.


Cinnamon Biscuit Balls
(original recipe by Karly/Buns in My Oven)

2 1/3 cups baking mix (ie Biquick)
1/2 cup milk
3 tbsp melted butter
4 tbsp sugar, divided
1 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Mix half of the sugar and the cinnamon in a small bowl.  Mix remaining ingredients together until a soft dough forms.  Scoop dough by tablespoons and roll into a ball.  Roll each ball in the cinnamon-sugar mixture and place on a greased baking sheet.  Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.

NOTE:  You can mix the dough with a mixer, but I mixed mine by hand and found the dough to be really easy to mix.
