Cinnamon Biscuit Fans

My mom made us these delicious cinnamon-sugar biscuits many times when I was a kid. And I had forgotten all about them (for over a decade!) until she mentioned making them recently. So, of course, I requested the recipe and have made them several times since. Think of them as cinnamon rolls (minus the yeast and hours of rise time) in biscuit form. They can be baked from scratch in about a half hour (meanwhile I scramble some eggs, heat some sausage links, you get the idea…). One of my favorite breakfast treats!

I didn’t read the recipe too closely because sometimes I just assume I know what I’m doing. (I often don’t.) And so I added much too much milk, making my glaze too thin. And I didn’t remove the muffins from the tin before drizzling the runny glaze over top. They still tasted great, but next time I’ll follow my own instructions!
