Snickerdoodle Skillet Biscuits
Snickerdoodle Skillet Biscuits for the biscuit: 2 1/2 cups self-rising flour 1 tbsp . sugar 1/3 cup cold butter cubed 3/4 cup milk 1 egg beaten for the topping: 1/4 cup sugar 1 tsp . cinnamon Preheat oven to 450f degrees. Grease an 8-inch cast iron skillet 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. 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. (helps with clean up later.) Knead the dough about 3 times (pressing the dough onto itself.) 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. 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. Notes Serve warm with butter!
