A Sweet Treat... Just the thing!

I suppose that today may have been a big disappointment in the birthday department -- although our sweet daughter never said as much.

The original plan for our day (pre-storm) was to do schooling at home, and go to a dinner meeting and youth group, etc. at church tonight.  There was no birthday-dinner-plan for at home.  {A family party is planned for the weekend.}

Well, the storm changed everything.  Church was canceled, and I made a big pot of beef-vegetable soup at the last minute.  The soup was great on this cold, cold day -- but was not the meatloaf and mashed potatoes that my girl usually requests for her birthday dinner.  I told her I'd make it up to her.

Dinner seemed anti-climatic.  We ate soup.  We gave her her gifts.  But there was no cake.  No snow-plan, really.

So, I got this bright idea.  (Uh-huh, I had a NAP today!)  I remembered a discussion we had the other day about some Bisquick Cinnamon Biscuits that we really liked.  The mix comes in a pouch, but we can no longer find it in our area (if they even make it anymore).  If you know me, you know what I did next.  I Googled it... found the Bisquick website... did a recipe search, and found THIS.  Hurray!  [Love the internet!]

So tonight, while my dear daughter is oblivious, I am making these little biscuits as an evening birthday surprise!  I think it will be a nice little snow-day surprise for everyone.

Recipe notes:  As you can see from the photo, we did not add the raisins.  Also, there is a glaze that goes with this recipe.  I didn't make the glaze.  The biscuits were so yummy, but next time, I might sprinkle just the littlest amount of cinnamon sugar on top of each little button-biscuit before baking!

~To those of you effected by the storm~
I hope that you are safe and sound at home,
keeping cozy with the ones you love.

  1. Hi Sally! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm sorry things didn't work out as planned but those cinnamon biscuits look pretty darn good! I like that your daughter's favourite birthday meal is meat loaf and mashed potatoes, my birthday meal is shepherd's pie!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! I read each and every one, and truly enjoy "conversations" with you! ~Sally
