Sweet Cinnamon Biscuit Shortcakes

Since having our babies, my husband has a new-found love for dessert.  Not for himself, mind you, but for our oldest (weaned) one.  As soon as she was old enough to have something a little sweet at the end of a meal, he has relished giving her a treat of some sort.  And since food is love around here, I know his motivation is pure.  He truly derives pleasure in watching her enjoy something special at the end of a meal.

But this creates a little bit of a problem.  We just don’t want her to have a bunch of sugar all the time. So I try to make some low sugar, fruit filled desserts for her that are still special.  I came up with this one and I like it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Oh, and it is so easy.

Sweet Cinnamon Biscuit Shortcakes


  • 1 can pre-made biscuits (whatever kind you like)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • Mixed Berries (choose your favorite)
  • Butter (if desired)


  1. Pre-heat oven according to biscuit package instructions.
  2. Mix together sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  3. Open biscuits and separate.  Roll each biscuit in sugar/cinnamon mixture, coating completely.
  4. Bake biscuits according to package instructions.
  5. While the biscuits are in the oven, wash, dry, and cut (if desired) berries.
  6. When the biscuits are done, let cool for just a moment.  Split in half and spread a small amount of butter (to taste) over the cut sides.
  7. Lay one side on the plate, fill with berries, and top with the other side of the biscuit.


These are very good and only a little sweet.  You could also add some whipped cream, if you wanted to take it up a notch.
