Recipe by RedSoxsNation 33fan

I would make this when I was in my 20s and bring it to work. It was a big hit then and now in my ........ it's still a big hit. One other option with this is to put pecans at the bottom of the bundt pan. Its more like a coffee cake.

These cinnamon bites were tasty, but I think I used the wrong type of canned biscuits. I used canned buttermilk biscuits, but I think I should have used the flaky style or the grands biscuits because my biscuits did not rise much and did not stick together. Will change my biscuits when making these the next time. Thanks for posting your recipe. Made for Fall PAC 2008.
