Course: Bread & Bakery
Servings: 9Large Biscuits
2 1/2cupsall-purpose flour
1 1/4tablespoonsbaking powder
1/2cupHershey's Cinnamon Chips
2tablespoonspure maple syrupdivided
Preheat oven to 400°F. Then, in a large mixing bowl, add flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar, and ground cinnamon. Stir to combine.Next, using a cheese grater, grate two sticks of frozen unsalted butter. Add to the mixing bowl along with the honey and 1 tablespoon of maple syrup. Gently stir to coat the butter sheds in the dry ingredients and then add 1 cup of buttermilk.Using a wooden spoon, gently fold the dough together until all the dry ingredients are just combined. Take care not to over mix.Next, turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Gently shape into a square and then, using a chilled rolling pin, roll out the dough into a 1/2-inch thick square.Sprinkle the cinnamon chips evenly over the dough and gently press to adhere. Then, fold the dough into thirds (like a brochure) and then in half again to shape into a square. Rotate the dough 90 degrees and then repeat these steps once. Roll out the dough a final time into a square that's 1-inch thick. Using a sharp knife trim away any rough edges of the dough so you are left with a clean square of dough. Doing this will also help your biscuits rise evenly. Next, cut into nine equal squares and transfer onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Now in a small ramekin, melt two tablespoons of butter with 1 tablespoon of pure maple syrup. About 15 seconds in the microwave should suffice. Stir to combine and then brush the top of each biscuit with the melted maple butter.Place the biscuits into the oven on the center rack and bake for 15-18 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown. Brush with more melted maple butter and serve warm.For an extra special treat, you could also add a few tablespoons of powdered sugar and milk to any remaining melted maple butter and drizzle that over the biscuits just before serving too.
