Crock Pot Iced Cinnamon Biscuits
I have to agree with my husband on these..... they are BETTER than cinnamon rolls (not to mention much easier to make).
- 1 can of refrigerator biscuits... or whomp 'em biscuits as I've always heard them called (My can had 8 biscuits in it)
- 1/4 cup white granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup of dark brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
- 1/4 cup of melted butter

Line a 6 quart oval crock pot with a slow cooker liner. Then spray the inside of the liner with a non-stick spray.
In a pie plate (or use anything shallow) mix both sugars and the cinnamon together.
Make an assembly line with your biscuits, melted butter and sugar/ cinnamon mixture.
Dip each biscuit into the melted butter and then in the sugar/ cinnamon mixture until completely coated. Then you place all the covered biscuits into the bottom of the lined and sprayed crock pot..... IN A SINGLE LAYER (very important it's in a single layer).
Place a couple of paper towels on top of the crock pot and secure with the lid.
Turn to LOW and cook for 2 - 3 hours (mine were done in exactly 2 1/2 hours, but always remember to trust your nose).
When the cinnamon biscuits are done lift them out using the liner. This will stop the cooking process (which is why the liner is so important in the cooking of these).
Now make a simple icing (I used 1 1/2 cups of confectioners sugar and a couple of tablespoons of milk) and spoon it over the cinnamon biscuits while they are still warm. If you can, let it sit for a few minutes to cool down.
