  • 2 cups flour (whole wheat, all purpose, or a mix)
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • 3/4-1 cup cold milk
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted


  • 1/3 cup icing sugar
  • 1-2 tbsp milk just enough to bring the glaze together


  • In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt (I mix with my pastry cutter).
  • Cut the butter into cubes and add to the bowl. Cut in the butter with a pastry cutter or fork until butter is in pea-sized pieces.
  • Stir in milk gradually, adding just enough so that the dough comes together. Bring together in a ball with your hands (if you accidentally add too much milk and it becomes sticky, just add a little more flour).
  • *See post above for make ahead directions.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease the sides of a 9-10" pie plate. Place 3-4 tbsp melted butter in the bottom of the pie plate and swirl to coat the bottom.
  • In a medium bowl, combine brown sugar, granulated sugar and cinnamon. Roll dough into 1" balls. Dip balls in remaining melted butter and then coat in cinnamon sugar mixture and place in the pie plate.
  • Drizzle melted butter over the dough balls in the pan. Bake for 23-26 minutes until biscuits are cooked and butter/sugar mixture is bubbling in the bottom of the pan.
  • *If you're using a pie plate smaller than 10", it's a good idea to place a piece of tin foil in the oven under the plate to catch any possible drips.
