Cinnamon Butter & Giveaway

008

One of my favorite memories as a child is watching Mom make buttermilk biscuits.  Almost every Sunday morning, Mom would scoop up the flour and start from scratch.  They were perfect.  Of all the things that I learned from Mom, I never have mastered the art of a perfect biscuit.  Oh, Mom used canned biscuits too and we considered them a treat.  She’d flatten them out, fill them with home-made apple pie filling and make the best fried apple pies.  Add a some ice cream, and you’re in heaven.

When Pillsbury first began making frozen biscuits to bake at home, I jumped on the bandwagon.  At last, I could get the taste of home-made biscuits without the fuss.  And the best part?  I could cook as many as I wanted.  If I only needed two biscuits, then that’s all I needed to pull out of the freezer.  Anyone knows, there’s no such thing as making a ‘small’ batch of homemade biscuits!

As you can imagine, I was very excited to hear about the new Pillsbury® Grands!® Mini Biscuits.  These little biscuits are just the right size for little appetites or big appetizers! Love coupons? Click here so you can save $1.00 on the purchase of any Frozen Pillsbury Grands! Biscuits.
.
Through MyBlogSpark, Pillsbury sent me information and a Pillsbury Grands! Mini Biscuits prize pack that included a coupon for a free package of biscuits, a $15 gift card, a biscuit basket, a butter dish and spreader. The best part? Pillsbury, through MyBlogSpark, is providing me with an additional prize pack for one of you!

What’s your favorite use for Pillsbury® Grands!®?  Do you use them in a recipe?  I love cooking home-made pot pies topped with a biscuit instead of pie crust.  Topping a biscuit with a little cinnamon, sugar, and butter before baking makes a wonderful dessert. Or, try this yummy recipe for cinnamon butter. The maple syrup adds just a taste of Fall! 


CINNAMON BUTTER
.
1 cup butter
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
.
Allow butter to soften at room temperature. Beat butter, sugar, syrup and cinnamon together until well blended. Store in air-tight container and refrigerate for at least an hour before using.


MyBlogSpark and Pillsbury want you to enjoy the new Pillsbury® Grands!® Mini Biscuits too.  To enter, just leave a comment on this blog & tell me your favorite use for Pillsbury biscuits.  If you’re a follower of this blog, you are automatically entered, but you’ll get an extra entry if you leave a comment.  Hurry though, this giveaway ends October 20, 2010 at midnight.

I don't use them as much as I used to because they're high carb, but they're great to have on hand just as is with butter. Yumm, I can taste one now.

We mostly have biscuits with our morning breakfast...just simply with butter and jam, but they are also really good baked on top of chicken stew.

We love to put them on top of stew and put it in the oven till they bake all nice and golden brown. So yummy cause the bottoms soak up the stew. Kind of like a pot pie.

I like to split them in half, sprinkle with cheese, put them back together. Sprinkle with rosemary and cracked black pepper, than bake as usual.This is really good with soup.

BTW, my bama used to soak her(day old, hard) bicuits in a runny egg and bacon mixture over night.
Then she would pop them in the oven the next morning and top them with butter, chopped onions and cheese. It was pretty terrific!

Stephanie said...

We like them for our big family dinners.

My quick "Chicken Ala King" is great with these biscuts. Dinner is on the table in no time at all.

I don't have a recipe but this is how I make it. The amount of everything is based on how many people you are feeding.

Put some chichen tenders in a pot with chopped onion (& some cellery if you like) and cover with water. I use the frozen tenders (I keep them on hand,they thaw & cook quickly) Bring them to a boil. Cook until tender.* While the chicken is cooking, bake your biscuts as per the direction on the package.* Cut the tenders up or shred. At this point add a can of condensed cream of chicken soup. You may need to remove some of the broth if you have alot. Or add another can of soup to thicken the broth into a gray. Heat it to a simmer. Pour over the baked biscuts. Salt and Pepper to taste.

I also add some canned peas to mine, but you can serve a veggie on the side. DONE!
