This ooey-gooey-deliciousness 🤤 is seriously heaven!
Growing up, our junior high and high school had these amazing cinnamon buns – I’m talking airy, fluffy and moist!
I craved these so much but would feel defeated because I couldn’t find a similar recipe that would hit the spot the same way. I am sure the cafeteria ladies that perfected this treasured gem are long gone 😩 too!
So, I began searching online and I found many cinnamon bun recipes but knew they weren’t the same texture and consistency I was searching for… [le sigh]
I didn’t stop searching and I recently found a recipe that I tweaked and it actually brought me back! Nos·tal·gia on high and all. Like, no joke. This is the real deal!
I made these for my son and husband and it was a total hit! My husband and son can now finally taste the goodness I kept raving about.
So, folks – You HAVE to try this recipe – its super (super) easy –
- 1 can of Grands!™ Flaky Layers Butter Tastin’™ Biscuits
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 2 teaspoonfuls of cinnamon
- 1/2 stick of unsalted butter (melted)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a shallow baking dish with butter or cooking spray – I used a ceramic pie dish and sprayed coconut cooking spray on the bottom and sides 🙂
- Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.
Open the can of biscuits and separate the individual biscuits pieces one-by-one.
Using a knife, cut each biscuit into 4 pieces (like a cross – straight down the entire middle first and then across). See image below –
One by one – take each piece of the cut biscuit and roll it into a ball shape using your hands
Take each ball and dip it in melted butter, covering the entire ball
Then roll the butter-covered ball into sugar-cinnamon mixture
Place finished cinnamon-sugar covered ball into greased baking dish
Repeat steps 6-9 until all biscuit pieces are covered and placed evenly inside baking dish
- Bake 15 minutes or until top is caramelized
Let cool 5-10 minutes before serving.
Extra: Add ice cream (or lactose-free vanilla ice cream) on the side to take it up a notch! 😉
P.S. Look at how gooey-fluffy-moist-airy this bite is –
Note: adding more cinnamon will give it a stronger cinnamon taste and darken the bites. I tried the recipe twice – once using 1 tablespoon of cinnamon (darker bites) and the other using 2 teaspoonfuls (the lighter dusted images). Both taste delicious!
