    Directions

    To make the biscuits: In a saute pan, heat the pancetta over medium-high heat and cook until crisp, about 5 minutes.

    In a large bowl, make the biscuits according to the box instructions, using buttermilk instead of the suggested liquid. Gently stir in the pancetta and the cheese.

    Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spoon the biscuit mixture onto the baking sheet and bake according to box instructions. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

    To make the Cinnamon-sugar Butter: Cut open the vanilla bean lengthwise. Using the back of a knife, scrape along the inside of the vanilla bean to collect the seeds. Scrape vanilla bean seeds into a small bowl. Add sugar and cinnamon and stir to combine. Stir in the butter until well blended. Transfer to a serving bowl.

    Serve the biscuits on a platter with the Cinnamon-sugar Butter alongside.

      This is one of the easiest and tastiest biscuit recipes I have tried. Made for small dinner party and doubled recipe (thought I would have a couple extra for lunch). None left!!! Everyone raved and wanted more. Now saved in my everyday collection of recipes. Perfect Giada....thank you.
