This is a recipe I learned in my 6th grade microwave home and careers class. It is a great first recipe for children wanting to cook. There are a few similar recipes but the ingredients and amounts differ a bit, and I think mine is the best! Lowfat tub margarine can replace butter without a huge difference in taste.
- 1⁄4 cup butter
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons water
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 7 1⁄2 ounces refrigerated biscuits, one can
- 2 tablespoons raisins (optional)
- 1⁄4 cup pecans, chopped (optional)
- In a pie plate, combine margarine, brown sugar, water, and cinnamon. Microwave 1 1/2 - 2 minutes on 80% power or until melted.
- Stir in raisins and nuts, if using.
- Using kitchen shears, cut each biscuit into four sections.
- Stir in biscuits until they are coated in the mixture.
- Push biscuits away from center. Place a large custard cup (or small microwavable drinking cup) in the center to form a ring.
- Cook in microwave uncovered at 80% power. Remove cup using potholders.
- Carefully turn the ring onto a serving platter by placing a large plate on top of the pie diesh and tipping upside down.
- Cut and serve.
This is a recipe I too had in high school. I lost mine, and was glad to find it here.<br/>This recipe doesn't state how long to put the mixture in for te 2nd go round, so I started off at three minutes, and they came out perfect :-) These are quick tasty treat and very easy to make!
