Chocolate Chip-Cinnamon Biscuits

We have 9 people in our family, so just use half of the ingredients for a smaller yield.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Sift together:
6 cups flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
2 tsp. salt

Mix in with hands until crumbly:
2 sticks butter, softened

Make a well in the center, add all at once:
1 - 12 oz. can coconut milk

Use your hands to draw flour mixture in a circular motion over milk, continue until mixture begins to combine and become a soft ball.  If mixture is too wet to form a soft dough, sprinkle on an additional 1/2 cup flour and continue kneading gently in the bowl, repeat if necessary.  Be very careful not to over-knead but make a dough that is soft, smooth, and pliable.  Over-kneading may cause your biscuits to become hard.

Turn onto a floured surface.  Press dough with your fingers or roll lightly to an approximate 10 X15 inch rectangle.

Spread over dough:
1 stick softened, not melted, butter

Sprinkle over butter:
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons ground cinnamon
1 cup chocolate chips.

Roll up jelly-roll style and slice into desired amount of even slices.  Place flat on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake in preheated oven for 18-20 minutes until just beginning to brown.

Serve warm with breakfast or brunch.
