Sweet Cinnamon Biscuits

This is a favorite of mine, I think I got it off of one of those junk mail recipe cards... I usually use buttermilk powder instead of the real thing. I don't use enough to buy a fresh container & I have a couple of recipes that require buttermilk. So the powder is the better option for me, since it seems to keep in the fridge for months.

Sweet Cinnamon Biscuits
2 c flour
1 T baking powder
1 t salt
1/4 t baking soda
1/4 c vegetable oil
3/4 c butter milk
8 T butter soft
3/4 c sugar
1 t cinnamon
1 c milk

Combine flour, powder, salt, soda in a medium bowl & mix well. Stir in oil. Add buttermilk & stir just until blended.Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth. Roll into a 15" x 8" rectangle.Preheat the oven to 400. Grease a 9" round cake pan lightly.Spread butter over the dough. Combine sugar & Cinnamon & mix well. Sprinkle over butter. Roll up rectangle jelly roll fashion, starting from one long side. Pinch to seal.Cut the roll into 1 1/2" slices. Arrange cut side up in the pan. Bake until lightly browned, about 15-20 min. Remove from oven. Pour milk over the top if desired. Serve hot.

8 Tbs. margarine, softened
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 oz. cream cheese
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/8 tsp. salt

Combine icing ingredients. Beat well with mixer until fluffy. When rolls come out of oven, cat each generously with icing.
