I saw this recipe in our electric company's flyer, and loved it...but I lost the recipe when I moved. It's so simple and I always have these ingredients. Tastes a little like bread pudding, or "peachless" peach cobbler. You can actually substitute a little peach juice from a can of peaches for some of the milk, or use coconut milk for a different flavor! Yummmy! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Roll out biscuits as thin as possible on floured board. Spread each one with butter and sprinkle with sugar and a little nutmeg (butter may be chipped onto biscuits). Roll up like jelly roll. Place rolls into a buttered casserole dish.
  2. Topping: Mix the 3/4 cup sugar, 2 cups milk and the vanilla; pour over rolls. Bake at 350 degrees until brown. Serve warm. The rolls may be made from any biscuit dough recipe.
