Cinnamon Surprise

The other night after dinner the boy said he was planning on making some biscuits from the refrigerated dough we already had. He then asked me if I was going to have any. I had already eaten dinner, and although I really wanted something sweet for dessert I had decided I wasn't going to have anything. I figured it wouldn't really be fair if I decided to have biscuits, so I told him I didn't want any.

He headed off into the kitchen and came back a few minutes later, "What if I make a special kind of biscuit?" I wasn't sure what he meant and asked him what he was talking about. To which he replied, "I want to make something special, but I don't think I'll eat all of it. So will you have some?" I knew at this time I wasn't going to get anyone information out of him, I let him know I trusted him, and we try whatever he decided to make.

He went back into the kitchen and told me I was banned from entering so I wouldn't ruin the surprise. After 15 or so minutes he came out presenting my surprise.
Cinnamon Biscuits

A cinnamon biscuit. He'd taken the biscuit dough and but honey, cinnamon, and sugar on top and it was pretty amazingly good. After I had my first one I went back into the kitchen for seconds. Out of the can of biscuits he made 3 of them cinnamon biscuits. He took a bite of one, and said I was welcome to have the rest of the cinnamon biscuits since he's not a big dessert fan. "But why did you make them if you didn't actually want to eat them?" I asked him. His response, "I was bored." As long as I'm able to benefit from this boredom I'm a fan!

Are you a big fan of baking when you're bored? Or if you do enjoy baking when do you enjoy doing so?



  1. Oh my gosh... what a great idea!!! YUM.

  2. Yum, that looks delish! Too funny that he made him because he was bored! Haha

  3. a cinnamon biscuit sounds yummy. and yes, when I am bored I do have a strange urge to bake! I usually don't act on it, mostly because I don't usually have ingredients on hand. but I did bake a cake this week for my roomie's birthday. it was a box devil's food cake, but hey, I still made it! and it was pretty darn good. the boys ate two slices!
