Recipe by Country Cook in Okl

I created this recipe while raising two children alone. These are easy, fast, inexpensive and can be made out of things we usually have on hand.

Less than a dollar to make it the whole tray. All I needed to buy was the refrigerated buttermilk biscuits, since I have all the other stuff.. (minus the nuts.) I added a cream cheese, very little lemon juice and power sugar for frosting.. The kids love it! Thanks..

  2. Melt butter in cake pan in oven, leave about 2 tablespoons in the bottom of pan and put remaining butter in a separate bowl.
  3. Sprinkle brown sugar and pecans in the bottom of pan. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  4. Rolls biscuit strip in butter then in cinnamon/sugar mixture. Roll strips into a circle and place in bottom of pan.
