Cinnamon Stack Biscuits

Cinnamon Stack Biscuits .....from" mmmcafe"

‘Okay are you impressed? What else is there to say! These little treats look like are difficult they to make, and they taste great! They remind me of a cinnamon scone. Basically, they are a substitute cinnamon roll, but much simpler and still just as tasty.

2 cups flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
1/2 tsp salt
3 Tbs. sugar
1/2 cup butter flavored shortening

Combine all of the dry ingredients, then cut in shortening with a pastry cutter until mixed well and slightly crumbly.
Then, slowly stir in:

2/3 cup milk

When dough begins to clump, knead with hands for about 30 seconds, or until dough forms a ball. Flour your surface to prevent sticking, and roll out your dough in a rectangle. Cut off edges to make perfectly straight sides of your rectangle.
Next, apply the filling:

3/4 stick butter, melted
1/4 cup sugar
1 HEAPING Tbs. cinnamon

Spread filling evenly to each edge of the rectangle. Cut rectangle from left to right (long-ways) into 5 strips and stack directly on top of one another like so:

Cut into 12 equal pieces and flip each individual piece into a cupcake tin.

Bake for 12-14 minutes at 400.

While they are in the oven, make icing:
1 cups powdered sugar
2 Tbs. water

Mix together. It should be fairly thick.
Drizzle each biscuit with icing while still warm to enable it to melt. Serve and enjoy!
