Cinnamon Sugar Drop BIscuits

Cinnamon Sugar Drop Biscuits can be whipped up in just minutes and they are so tender, buttery, and fluffy with just the right amount of sweetness. For these biscuits I used White Lily’s brand new Wheat and Almond Flour Blend. If you like to bake, not just biscuits, but any kind of baking, you are going to want to try this new flour which just became available.

It gives these biscuits that wonderful light and fluffy texture that White Lily is so known for, plus a slight nutty flavor from the almonds.

With a little sugar added to the biscuit dough and more sugar and some ground cinnamon sprinkled on top, the flavor of these biscuits is spot on.

White Lily’s Whole Wheat and Almond Flour Blend is easy to use. Just sub it cup for cup in any recipe where you would use all-purpose flour. This is the newest product in White Lily’s new line of premium flour blends. You can read some about their other Premium Flour Blends here, here, and here. They make an All-Purpose Wheat Flour, a Wheat and White Grape Seed Flour Blend, and a Wheat and Red Grape Seed Flour Blend. And they are so much fun to bake with in the kitchen.

The Wheat and Almond Flour Blend, like the other blends, is a high quality flour that is certified non-GMO. The wheat is grown in the Pacific Northwest by Shepherd’s Grain by small family farmers who really care about their crops and practice sustainable farming. On the back of each bag is a unique code that you can type into the White Lily website to learn about the farmer who grew the wheat that was milled to go in that particular bag of flour.

You can read about my visit to a Shepherd’s Grain farm to see the wheat they grow for White Lily here.

Cinnamon Sugar Drop Biscuits


These Cinnamon Sugar Drop Biscuits are perfect with a glass of milk or a cup of coffee for breakfast or they would be a great addition to an Easter brunch. Since they are drop biscuits they are so easy to make and virtually mess-free.

Just mix the White Lily Wheat and Almond Flour Blend, a little sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Cut in some cold butter and add enough milk for a dough to form. I like to spray a small measuring cup with cooking spray and use it to scoop and drop the dough onto a baking sheet. Drizzle a little melted butter and sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top, and pop them in the oven for about 12 minutes and you have the most tender, delicious biscuits that you’ll want to eat straight off the baking sheet.

    I’d love to try these, but where do you get white Lily Wheat and almond blend?
    Even Amazon doesn’t sell it

  2. Wow! These turned out so good. I added the cinnamon and a 1/2 tsp of vanilla to the mix. Think I could have gone with a full tsp of the vanilla and a touch more cinnamon. Definitely going to do these again. Thank you so much.

  3. Pretty good, easy to make (even with a bumb dominant hand). I liked not having to roll out and cut the dough. Easy peasy!
    I am NOT big sugar-a- holic, but the dough didn’t taste quite sweet enough to me, so I increased the sugar to 5 Tbls and added an extra 1.5 tsp overall.
    I used 2 glass cake pans and a teflon coated dark breadloaf type pan. Perfect results all around!
    They are kind of like a fluffy snickerdoodle.

  4. Just made these and LOVE THEM! I used a local fresh buttermilk and the rich sweet combination was perfect. Not overly sweet. Thanks for posting an easy and good recipe.
