Maple-Cinnamon Biscuits

Maple-Cinnamon Biscuits
Servings: 24 Prep 10 mins Bake 400°F 12 mins to 15 mins


  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons plus 3 teaspoons cinnamon-sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup imitation maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 2 tablespoons milk

Make It

1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. In large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, 2 tablespoons of the cinnamon-sugar, baking soda and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal. (Alternately, dough can be made in a food processor, using on/off action so as not to overwork.)

2. Stir in buttermilk and maple syrup until all ingredients are moistened. Stir in pecans (dough will be soft). Turn out dough onto generously floured surface. With floured hands, pat dough to a 9-inch square. Cut out biscuits, using a 2-inch round fluted or straight-sided biscuit cutter. Gather scraps together and cut additional biscuits for a total of 24. Transfer all to an ungreased baking sheet.

3. Brush biscuit tops with 2 tablespoons milk. Sprinkle each biscuit with 1/8 teaspoon of the remaining cinnamon-sugar. Bake at 400 degrees F for 12 to 15 minutes. Remove biscuits from oven and immediately transfer to a wire rack. Serve slightly warm.
