Copycat Recipe for Bojangles Cinnamon Biscuits
Bojangles is one of my favorite places to eat when I go back home to North Carolina. They have the best fried chicken and biscuits! I also love their Cinnamon Biscuits and their Bo Berry biscuit! I have shared my take on their Bo Berry Biscuits before so today I am spilling the tea on their Cinnamon Biscuits. I used Miss Lena's buttermilk biscuit mix to make these biscuits. Tag me on IG or on Tik Tok if you try this recipe.
Ingredients for Cinnamon filling
1/2 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons of flour
3 tablespoons of butter, melted
Ingredients for the Biscuits
1 bag of Miss Lena’s Buttermilk Biscuit mix
2 teaspoons of powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoons of Yes ground cinnamon
1/2 cup salted butter, very cold, grated
1 cup of buttermilk
Ingredients for the Vanilla Glaze
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1–2 tablespoons of milk
Directions to Make the Cinnamon Filling
In a small bowl, add brown sugar, cinnamon, flour, and melted butter and whisk to combine.
Directions to Make The Biscuits
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
In a separate bowl , pour Miss Lena’s biscuit mix into the bowl. Add cinnamon and powdered sugar and whisk until combined.
Grate one stick of cold butter into the flour mixture.
Mix well until the butter is incorporated. Make a well in the center of the bowl and add the buttermilk.
Using a fork fold the ingredients together until just combined and forms a dough.
Knead the dough 2-3 times on a lightly floured surface. Fold the dough three times and then roll it out again.
Use a biscuit cutter or a glass to cut out each biscuit. Repeat the process until you have cut out all the biscuits.
Place biscuits onto a baking sheet.
Using a tablespoon, make a dent in the center of the biscuits. Add about 1 tablespoon of cinnamon filling to the hole. Brush the biscuits with buttermilk.
Bake for about 12-14 minutes, or until lightly brown on the edges.
Remove biscuits from oven, then top with vanilla glaze.
Directions to Make Vanilla Glaze
In a small bowl, add powdered sugar and milk. Whisk until combined.
