Recipe: Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit cinnamon biscuits


From the menu… Callie’s Hot Little Biscuits, 1004 Virginia Avenue NE, Atlanta. 404-330-8285. calliesbiscuits.com

Some persnickety friends and I met recently for an early breakfast at Callie’s Hot Little Biscuits in the Virginia-Highland area. To our delight, we found the biscuits to be absolutely, melt in your mouth, delicious! I especially liked the filling for the cinnamon biscuit. It was buttery and not too sweet. Is it possible to get their recipe for the cinnamon filling? — Deborah Moses, Decatur

Callie’s Hot Little Biscuits opened an outpost in Atlanta’s Virginia-Highland neighborhood and there was a line out the door immediately. The biscuits are tall, fluffy and delicious with a buttermilk tang and plenty of dairy goodness from the butter and cream cheese in the dough.

They were willing to share the recipe for those delicious biscuits as well as their cinnamon butter. Less sweet than the cinnamon fillings and icing that go onto cinnamon rolls, it will be a nice change from butter and honey for a holiday breakfast.

The first time I stopped by Tea House Formosa on Buford Highway, my friend and I found a quiet nook and ordered a pot of Rose of the Orient: green tea delicately scented with rose, marigold and cornflower. She poured from a lantern-shaped porcelain pot. We sipped from dainty white matching cups and filled our table with an assortment of snacks: tea...
