Snickerdoodle Skillet Biscuits

Snickerdoodle Biscuits! What?! I think this is my new favorite sweet biscuit! It's got a sweet, slightly crusty exterior and the softest, tender inside. I think this would be amazing for breakfast or dessert. Oh, and maybe some apple butter or pumpkin butter spread on it. Or, how about serving it with some fruit like apples or strawberries or with a drizzle of icing! Holy biscuit batman!
Every biscuit is made better by using White Lily flour. I wouldn't use anything else. It's hands-down the best flour for making biscuits. It is every southern cook's secret weapon. Once you touch it for the the first time, you can actually feel the difference. Let me tell ya, if you can't find it in a store near you - it is totally worth ordering it from Amazon!
And, in celebration of National Biscuit Month, I am hosting a giveaway for my favorite flour so you can make these biscuits (and many more!) Scroll down to the end of this post (to that little Rafflecopter box below) to enter to win! Lots of fun goodies in that prize pack!
Ingredients:
for the biscuit:
1 tbsp. sugar
1/3 cup cold butter, cubed
3/4 cup milk
1 Eggland's Best egg, beaten

for the topping:
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
Directions:
Preheat oven to 450f degrees. Grease an 8-inch cast iron skillet (or 8-inch round baking pan) with butter (or no-stick cooking spray.) In a bowl, add the flour and sugar. Stir well. Then add milk, beaten egg and cubed butter. Stir it all up with a fork and/or a pastry cutter. You want to "cut" the butter into the mixture.
Continue to mix the ingredients together with the fork until a sticky dough forms.
Sprinkle a light coating of flour onto the counter and add the dough. Tip: I like to put some wax paper down on my counter then add the flour. This helps with clean up later. 
Knead the dough about 3 times. I basically just press the dough in on itself a few times until it's sturdy enough to roll out. 
Sprinkle a bit more flour on a rolling pin then roll out the dough to about 1/4" thickness. Using a 3-inch biscuit cutter, cut the dough into 5 or 6 biscuits. I cut out 5 biscuits but I could've rolled the dough back up and gotten another biscuit out of it. 
In a wide bowl or plate, mix together the cinnamon and sugar topping. 
Take a little bit of water or milk and lightly coat the biscuits to help the cinnamon sugar mixture stick to them. 
Coat both sides of each biscuit in cinnamon sugar. 
Then place into prepared skillet or baking dish.
Pop skillet into the oven and bake for about 15-17 minutes. They will puff up a bit and will have a light brown crust on top. 
Enjoy!

  1. This recipe looks delicious! One of the many many favorite ways to eat biscuits are "stuffed." Add a bit of anything--eggs, ham, sausage, cheese, veggies, pizza sauce...literally anything you like---to a biscuit round and close it to make a "bomb." Bake as usual. Great frozen for a quick after school snack.

  30. Family favorite: "fried pumpkin"...my aunt's homemade biscuits made exclusively by "feel" and her fried pumpkin, which was made with fresh or canned pumpkin in her cast iron skillet,bacon grease, butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, some sugar...made "to taste". Easy to give up bacon and eggs when this was part of the meal.

  35. My favorite is a good sausage biscuit with mustard or a yummy jelly/butter biscuit! And I have to tell you, having been born and raised in the South and living here all my life, there is no match for White Lily Flour!! My mother used it and I have always used it as well. I also use their cornmeal mix. YUMMY!

  45. Depends on the biscuit. If it's a plain biscuit I like butter and honey, but jelly would work in a pinch. I also love bacon, eggs and cheese. If it's a sweet biscuit likes this I would just add butter! Everything is better with butter.

  76. WOW 2 of my favorite things - snickerdoodles and biscuits!!! I've made snickerdoodle cookies for my boys since they were little - they were their favorite! I grew up eating biscuits and gravy every Sunday made by my paternal grandma who taught my mom to make them the "right" way. Mom took over Sunday breakfast after we lost my grandma and has "attempted" to teach her 5 daughters the secrets. Alas my 4 sons say "Grandma's are better". I've never tried White Lily flour but have heard it's great from some of my Southern friends. I'm going to give it a try!!! Maybe then my boys will say mine are as good as Grandma's!!!
