Big Dave's Cinnamon Biscuits

Eat these in a hurry! They are so light that they will fly right off of the plate! Serve them warm with honey or your favorite preserves. For a great summer desert, try these as shortcakes with strawberries and more of the fresh whipped cream.

How to Make Big Dave's Cinnamon Biscuits
