  • Turn dough onto lightly floured surface and knead briefly.
  • Wrap dough in plastic food wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until firm.
  • Mix together cinnamon powder and remaining sugar in a small bowl.
  • Roll the dough into small balls.
  • Roll each ball into the cinnamon-sugar mixture, and place the balls about 2" apart on lightly greased trays.
  • Bake in a preheated oven (350 degrees (175 C.) F.) for 8 minutes or until golden.
  • Remove and cool on wire racks.
If these biscuits get a bit soggy the next day, just bake them for a few minutes in a preheated oven, and cool on wire racks. They'll be as crisp as they were on the first day of baking. Always store biscuits in an airtight container.
