For the Cinnamelts:

  • 1 can of biscuits (any brand, typically 8-count)
  • 1/2 cup butter (melted)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon

For the Icing:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter (softened)
  • Optional: 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1 tablespoon brown sugar for extra flavor


Making the Cinnamelts:

  1. Preheat Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Prepare the Biscuit Pieces:
    • Open the can of biscuits and cut each biscuit into 4 pieces.
  3. Prepare the Sugar Mixture:
    • In a bowl, mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon.
  4. Coat the Biscuit Pieces:
    • Roll each biscuit piece in the brown sugar and cinnamon mixture until well coated.
  5. Arrange in Pan:
    • Place the coated biscuit pieces in a greased baking pan or dish, spreading them out evenly.
  6. Top with Butter:
    • Pour the melted butter over the biscuit pieces, ensuring they are all coated.
  7. Bake:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the biscuits are fully cooked and golden brown.

Making the Icing:

  1. Mix the Icing:
    • In a medium bowl, combine the powdered sugar, vanilla extract, softened butter, and milk. Stir until smooth and creamy.
    • If desired, add the optional cinnamon and brown sugar to the icing for extra flavor.
  2. Adjust Consistency:
    • If the icing is too thick, add a bit more milk. If it’s too thin, add a bit more powdered sugar until you reach your desired consistency.

Finishing the Cinnamelts:

  1. Drizzle Icing:
    • Once the biscuits are done baking, remove them from the oven and let them cool slightly.
    • Drizzle the prepared icing over the warm biscuits.
  2. Serve:

  • Butter: Make sure the butter is melted for easy pouring and coating.
  • Icing: Adjust the sweetness and consistency of the icing to your preference.
  • Serving: These are best served warm, but you can store leftovers in an airtight container and reheat in the microwave for a few seconds.
