I followed Diner524's lead on this! I did exactly what she did plus I added cinnamon powder like she suggested and this worked GREAT! Tastes very much like a cinnamon bun! I have a photo, but this site won't allow it to upload for some reason...but I'll keep trying! =)

I made mine a bit different, based on the first reviewers comments/results!! I took a glass pie plate and added the butter, then microwaved it for 40 seconds. I then added the brown sugar and the biscuits, topped with the pecans. Instead of microwaving it I chose to bake it for 10 mins in the oven. I had wonderful sweet and crunchy biscuit bites!!! Next time I might even add some cinnamon to the butter and brown sugar. My rating is based on chosing to bake and thus my results!! Thanks for sharing a quick and tasty biscuits Acadia!! Made for potluck tag!!

For taste and easy of making this is a great quick breakfast. It is not brown or crunchy like my kids like their biscuits (because of the microwave). I do not have one but maybe with a browning microwave the color would be improved. Thanks for sharing. Made for Photo Tag.
