Easy Cinnamon Treats


3 tablespoons chopped walnuts
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tube country-style refrigerator biscuits


Sprinkle the walnuts and raisins in the bottom of the Dutch oven. In a small saucepan, melt the butter. Add the brown sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon; stir and set aside.

Open the biscuit tube and arrange the dough on top of the walnuts and raisins. Pour the butter mixture over the top of the biscuits, covering every one. Arrange 20 briquettes, with seven underneath and 13 on top of the Dutch oven, all in ring patterns. Bake until the biscuits are golden brown. Invert them onto the lid and serve.


Makes 10 biscuits.

This recipe comes from the Dutch Oven Society (see note at top of page). Since it doesn’t give an exact amount of time for cooking, we can’t offer a suggestion for how long it would need in a slow cooker. That doesn’t mean you can’t experiment. We’d suggest trying the low setting on your slow cooker and checking on it every 1 to 2 hours.
