I have already posted the All purpose convience mix http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1401738.aspx as well as the Biscuit Recipe http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1401739.aspx IMPORTANT:YOU WILL NEED TO READ THEM BEFORE YOU READ THESE RECIPES. Biscuit Variations: Combine ingredients as in the biscuit recipe and continue as follows: Drop Biscuits Use a little more liquid. Drop dough by spoonfuls onto a greased pan and bake at 450 degrees F for 10 to 12 minutes. Cinnamon Rolls Roll biscuit mix to 1/4-inch thickness. Spread with margarine, brown sugar, cinnamon and raisins. Roll up like a jelly roll. Slice into sections and bake on a greased pan. Bake at 450 degrees F for 10 minutes. Meat Rollups Leftover meat, tuna fish or chopped meat can be spread on the rolled out biscuit dough. This can rolled up like a jelly roll, sliced into sections and baked on a greased pan. Sections can be served plain or with a cheese sauce. Bake at 450 degrees for 12 minutes. Cheese Biscuits Add 1/3 to 1/2 cup grated American or cheddar cheese to 3 cups mix. Prepare as biscuits above. Shortcake Add 1 tablespoon sugar to 3 cups of mix. Add 3/4 cup water and prepare as for biscuits. Prepare rectangle of biscuit dough. Bake at 450 degrees F for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve at once with sweetened fruit. If individual shortcakes are desired, cut dough into rounds before baking. Fruit Kitchen Spread the dough in a prepared pie pan so that dough comes up the sides. Arrange peeled, sliced peaches or apples to fill the pie dish. Sprinkle peaches with 1/4 cup sugar, or apples with a mixture of 1/4 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Add 1 teaspoon margarine. Bake at 400 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes. American Pizza Use 3 cups mix and 1/2 cup water. Roll out dough into a 15- inch circle, 1/4-inch thick. Place on baking sheet. Spread dough with 1 cup spaghetti sauce. Sprinkle with grated mozzarella cheese. Add other toppings as desired. Bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes or until edges are brown.

Who knew you could do so much with one biscuit mix. Do the cinnamon rolls turn out dryer like a biscuit or moist like a roll? This recipe must really simplify breakfast time.

Hubby loves homemade biscuits but I get tired of making the same old boring plain ones so maybe this will make it fun again. Thanks for sharing these. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

I know what you mean. It can get boring so it is great to jazz them up like this

These are great ideas, thanks Anne. I used to go to a restaurant many years ago that served sweet potatoe biscuits, which were really yummy. I've never found a recipe for that. Thanks again for sparking up plain old biscuits.
