Cinnamon Sour Cream Biscuits

These actually have more the consistency of muffins, but they are wonderful, regardless!  I make them for me and our grandsons with raisins, but substitute chocolate chips for the raisins for my husband.

Instructions
  1. If you are using a baking stone, place that in the oven. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. In large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda. Cut in butter. You can make up a large batch and store it at this point, in the freezer or refrigerator.
  3. Add sour cream, milk and raisins or chocolate chips, stirring just until combined.
  4. If you are not using a baking stone, line the cookie sheet with parchment paper. Scoop out onto baking sheet (I use a 2 oz. scoop). Bake for 12 minutes. Cool slightly, then drizzle with glaze.
  5. This will make 11-12 mini muffins. Just use a 1 oz. scoop and bake in the mini muffin maker for 5 minutes.
Recipe Notes

The biscuit ingredients before adding the milk, sour cream, and raisins or chocolate chips measures 1 3/4 cups and weighs about 236 grams, so if you want to, you can mix up a big batch of the flour mixture, store in the refrigerator or freezer, then measure out just what you need and continue with the recipe.

Apple Crisp for 120 people

I am actually not sure about the baking time for this dish.  The original recipe made 6 servings and baked for 40 minutes.  I never wrote down what the cooking time was for the larger batch.  So just keep an eye on it and let me know if you make it how long it took.

Recipe Notes

Although spelt is actually a type of wheat flour, most people with wheat allergies can digest spelt flour with no problem.  Obviously, you should not eat spelt if it is a problem for you.

A healthy way to start your day.  This is made from whole grain oats.  Suggested toppings:  brown sugar, cinnamon, chopped nuts, raisins, preserves, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, dried cranberries or cherries, yogurt, granola, chocolate chips, honey, or syrup

My preference is honey and granola (http://www.cherylsrecipes.net/recipe/easy-homemade-healthy-granola/); my husband likes brown sugar.
