- If you don't get them out before the cinnamon glaze turns to candy - simply warm the pan a few minutes to loosen.
Good to know:
For a lighter/fluffier biscuit: substitute part of the milk with yogurt or thick coconut milk.
Make a double-batch. These freeze well.
Vinegar or lemon juice is suggested with gluten-free baking. It 'conditions' the dough for a better texture. *Apple Cider Vinegar works the best!
