Sweet Cinnamon Biscuits

I had made these all wrong.  Here is a link to do it the right way from Grandma's Kitchen:

2 cups flour
1 T baking powder
1 t. salt
¾ cup sugar
¼ t. baking soda
1 t. cinnamon
8 T butter
¾ cup buttermilk
¼ cup vegetable oil
1 cup milk, optional

Combine all dry ingredients, then oil and buttermilk. Knead dough on floured surface. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Roll dough out and prepare just like cinnamon rolls. Bake 15 to 20 minutes. Pour milk over top if your heart so desires.

*"Mmmmm...," Jacob likes these.  Much easier than regular sweet rolls, though not a replacement.  I mixed the dry ingredients, cut in the cold butter, then added the wet ingredients (in place of buttermilk, I used 3/4 cup regular milk with 3/4 T of white vinegar mixed in, let set for 5 min).  The dough was very wet and I probably mixed in another 1 cup plus of flour while kneading.  I did roll the dough out (as if making cinnamon rolls), spread some melted margarine on it and sprinkled brown sugar, cinnamon, and raisins on top (though less than I normally do with regular cinnamon rolls).  The biscuits were moist and flakey and very good with cold milk.
