We have 9 people in our family, so just use half of the ingredients for a smaller yield.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
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.
