    Marg (CaymanDesigns)'s Note:

    I had these for the first time at my sister-in-law's when I was staying with them as a teen. They are now a much loved tradition in my home too. Any time it snows, the kids beg me to make them. I've changed them just a bit by adding the nuts but they are good with or without them. For an Orange Cinnamon variation see Orange Cinnamon Biscuits.

      So easy and so good!. I put mine in an 8 inch round pan and they came out fine. I sprinkled with them with some raisins before rolling up and they tasted a lot like Hardees old Cinnamon Raisin Bisctuis, but a lot less work! Thanks!

      I made these for breakfast for my family and then brought the extras to the neighbours. Everyone raved about them. My neighbour thought it was an "heirloom" recipe!! So easy to make. I did add extra flour to make my dough not so sticky. Definitely a keeper!

      We loved them! I made them the night before and reheated them the next morning and they were excellent. I actually doubled the recipe because I just knew they were going to be delicious. So glad I did! I followed the recipe as written and we have now found our new Cinnamon Biscuit/Roll recipe! Thanks, Marg!!!
