Honey Cinnamon Biscuits

Here’s dessert as we promised in our last post! Yummmm…

Since it was raining we wanted a comforting dessert. We made these whole wheat cinnamon honey shortcakes/biscuits and topped them with fresh berries and homemade whipped cream, for a sweet ending to the night.

This shortcake/biscuit is very versatile and can wear many toppings well, depending on the occasion. The way we served it definitely made it shortcake. But, slice it in half and smother it with butter and jam and you have a delicious breakfast or mid-morning treat!

So if you’ve already had dessert, go turn on your oven and make breakfast for tomorrow. Your taste buds will thank you. Happy double dipping!
