Iced Cinnamon Biscuit

This recipe gives a new meaning to the humble biscuit. Cinnamon, dried fruit and nuts make this perfect for brunch but it's quick enough for everyday.

Iced Cinnamon Biscuit
2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Mix in food processor for a few seconds. Add 1/3 cup cold butter, pulse until Incorporated. Add 3/4 cup buttermilk, 1/2 cup dried fruit (I like dates, dried cherries or dried blueberries), 1/4 cup pecans. Pulse until moistened. Turn dough on floured mat, knead 4-5 turns. Roll dough 1/2 inch thick. Cut, bake in a 425 oven for 12-15 minutes.
Drizzle with a glaze made with powdered sugar, cinnamon and cream. Serve warm.

That looks delicious. You have the most interesting silverware. Love the whole photo...just looks so comforting and wonderful to sit down to that. Sigh, wish we lived closer.
