Completely worth it, though.
I had a bunch of buttermilk left over from the banana chocolate marble cake, so my friend Courtney referred me to a new biscuit recipe. These biscuits are delicious! And, super easy! Seriously. Next time I want just some basic biscuits, I’ll make these.
I followed the recipe from the blog. I rolled out the dough. Added a little butter and cinnamon sugar mixture. Baked them. Then added a cinnamon sugar glaze.
I can assure you that these biscuits are in no way as greasy and buttery as those from Bojangles, and you will be able to eat dessert within the next day. They certainly are not as good though. You win some and you lose some.
Follow instructions for biscuits here. (I used buttermilk instead of almond milk with vinegar):
Roll out the dough into a rectangle.
Melt 1 Tbsp. of butter and pour over dough
Sprinkle a layer of cinnamon sugar on top (as much as you want)
Bake in 400 degree oven for about 15 minutes.
Pour icing on top.
1 cup confectioner sugar
1 Tbs. milk
1/4 tsp. vanilla
Pinch of salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
