I've made this recipe several times... I clipped it out of a magazine a while back. I was glad to see that it was posted :^) Definitely a family favorite! My neighbor's daughter asks me to make them for her all the time! Oh, and need I say SUPER EASY!

I saw this in the November issue of Real Simple, and like you, I LOVE it. These are so easy and soooo good! I used Pillsbury homestyle flaky buttermilk biscuits, but I'm pretty sure this would be good no matter what style biscuits are used. I also used dark brown sugar. Thanks for posting this one, Meredith.
