Sweet Cinnamon Biscuits
Why I Love This Recipe
In the Drope family it is a tradition to make cinnamon rolls on christmas morning. In '07 my mom was in the hospital and i thought it would be nice to sure our traditions with the nurses that had been taking care of her. so instead of bringing store bought "break and Bake" rolls i made these. they loved them and mom said that these would be our new tradition.

After kneading and before rolling out the dough I cut it in half. This will give you small pieces to roll out, thus giving you small biscuits like poppers. I just packed them into a round silcone cake pan. This helps when taking them out (a lot easier). Also in my oven it took about 22 min. but oven vary so...
