I won't rate this until I have made it exactly as written, I made so many changes this time that I prefer not to rate it yet. Saying that.... I used tangerine instead of lemon, omitted the nuts, used Grands Jr. biscuits. I would like to roll out the biscuits and spread the sugar, rind mixture on them, then roll them up and bake to better infuse the flavors down into the biscuits. DGS, who is 16 months, and I did enjoy them!! Good recipe, thanks Skinny!!

I made this coffee cake and took it into work. It is a perfect sweet and tart blend. I used a bit more butter to make it more gooey. But other than than followed the recipe including the lemon zest. It is easy, inexpensive and tasty. Thank you SkinnyMinnie for this recipe.

i was going to post this recipe, but you saved me the trouble. the coffee cake is delicious and does not taste as if it started with canned biscuits. thanks for posting the great and easy recipe. i don't add the lemon zest, too bitter for me, just the lemon juice.

This was awesome. I made exactly like recipe, but made up more of the icing. My bunch really likes icing. I took the leftovers to work and everyone wants the recipe. Quick and easy and delicious!

Oh my this was wonderful. I didn't cut my biscuits I just squished them into a 9" pie pan. I used reduced fat biscuits, light butter 1/2 of the pecan sugar mixture and about 1/2 of the frosting to cut calories. These were great this way and I have leftover pecan/sugar mix and frosting for another batch:) Made for adopt a tag 07.

This was very good. We love lemony sweet treats, and this fit the bill. I didn't have any pecans but otherwise followed the recipe exactly, though I had some cheap biscuits that didn't quite fill the pan when baked - so it wasn't as pretty as the photo, but the taste was really good and it came together quickly. This also is on the Pillsbury site, a 1998 Bake-Off entry.
