- In a medium-size bowl, combine biscuit mix, sugar, and cinnamon.
- Cut butter into dry ingredients with your hands, a pastry blender or two table knives, until the texture of dry oatmeal. (This can also be done in a food processor but be careful not to over-process. Usually, about 5 pulses will do.)
