Hello everyone, welcome to my latest recipe for Gluten and Dairy Free Cinnamon Biscuits.

I made these little cinnamon biscuits as I just fancied doing some baking that was a little plainer.  I wanted something to go with my afternoon coffee that wasn’t a giant piece of cake.  They hit the spot and tasted amazing but for some reason they remind me of Christmas!  I feel like I should be sharing these in December not in May when the sun is shining.  Maybe next time I make them I won’t use a star shaped cookie cutter.

This weekend I’m hoping to bake some mini Hummingbird cakes with pineapple, banana and walnuts.  What have you been baking during lockdown?
