    Great biscuits!!! I made these using a small can of non-grand size biscuits, so I cut the syrup and filling to 1/4 of the recipe. I just made the syrup in the microwave which worked out great. Thanks for sharing a quick and easy way to the taste of Baklava!! Made for ZWT6.

    Ready made biscuits convinced me. The muffins were easy to prepare and sweet enough to satisfy everybody. TFS

    We love this recipe!! I make it ahead and put in the fridge so all I have to do is pop it in the oven in the morning and it turns out great! I took some to work and shared both the muffins and the recipe.
