As you may know, I visited the charming town of Charleston this past spring. One of my favorite eats of the trip was no doubt the cinnamon biscuits from Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit. These biscuits are definitely not your typical biscuit. They are the most delectably rich biscuits that you will ever eat. No other biscuit will ever compare to them, I can promise you that! All of their biscuits are downright indulgent, but the cinnamon biscuits are about as close to dessert as you could get!
As soon as I tried them, I knew I had to try to recreate them! Luckily, I was able to catch an episode of the Cooking Channel show, Unique Sweets. They went over their process of making the biscuits. This made it much easier to get super close to replicating the real thing. I must say that I have seen plenty of recipes online claiming to be the Callie recipe, but none of them have the same ingredients as those listed in the tv episode. I hope you enjoy these biscuits as much as I do!

Use a 2-inch biscuit cutter to cut out biscuits (you should have about 10 biscuits)
Place biscuits on lined sheet, leaving no space between the biscuits. This will help them rise better. Brush Top of each biscuit with melted butter.
Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar topping. Bake for 12-14 min or until they are puffy and tops and edges are lightly golden.
Set aside to cool completely.
Meanwhile prepare butter by mixing the butter, sugars, vanilla, and cinnamon together.
