Learn how to make soft, buttery cinnamon sugar biscuit waffles (4 ingredients) and a simple candied pecan topping for a scrumptious breakfast or dessert. It’s so easy!
I’m working on a list of about 597 occasions you could use as an excuse to whip up the dreamiest breakfast of your life, aka cinnamon sugar biscuit waffles with just 4 ingredients and if you’re feelin’ real crazy, a 5 minute candied pecan topping.
1) You had a good day.
2) You had a bad day.
3-9) Because it’s ______. (<—insert day of the week here. they all have their reasons.)
10) Bad hair day.
11) Can’t find your keys.
12) Christmas morning!! *.*.*
Because it’s the holiday season, I’m mostly thinking about number 12 on that list. We are a week into December (STOP IT) and Christmas is approaching faster than I want it to. I need this season to slow down, pleeeeeeease. But I have had time to think about what we’ll be having for breakfast on Christmas morning and you better believe it’s gonna be these cinnamon sugar biscuit waffles.
They meet all of my Christmas morning breakfast checklist items. Easy, quick, crazy delicious, a little bit magical, can be eaten by both adults and 1 year olds with less than a full mouth of teeth… Oh did I mention easy??
Yeah I think I said that already but it deserves more attention because these beauties start with a can of Pillsbury refrigerated biscuits (or any brand of refrigerated biscuits really, as long as you love em and trust em to be puffy, flaky, and totally delicious) and require only three other ingredient plus your toppings of choice. Don’t feel like you have to make the candied pecans but if you have an extra five minutes, they’re totally worth it.

Candied Pecans Topping

Candied Pecan Topping
- Combine pecans and sugar in a small-medium pan and stir over medium-high heat 2-4 minutes until sugar is melted. Reduce heat to low and immediately sprinkle cinnamon over the nuts and sugar. Continue to stir until pecans are coated in the melted sugar. Transfer to a plate or baking pan to cool until ready to use.
