"This is an easy, unique dessert or coffee cake. It is great for kids and adults and is super quick to prepare because it starts with refrigerated biscuits. Enjoy!"

  1. This was so easy to make and my family really loved it.
  2. I fixed this for a Hispanic family. Everyone enjoyed it & I even passed on the recipe to someone. I fixed it the nite before, refrigerated it & let it sit out for about 1 hour. Even then it was still chewy inside each bite!
  3. MAJOR NOMMAGE! Wow, we couldn't keep our paws off this delicious and easy snack. I used finely chopped pistachios for the optional nuts and halved the recipe, using a round medium-sized Pyrex dish as it's all I have that's semi-suitable. I think I cooked it a bit too long, forgetting to take into account that the mass was significantly smaller than the original recipe, but it was still absolutely divine as is. Parts of the buttery sugar caramelized and turned crunchy and... well, SINFUL, despite what my lame photograph of the yummy lumpage depicts. *lol* Thank you so much for this great guilty pleasure, Karen!
  4. Fabulous and easy. I agree with Lulu... it takes a bit longer than 15 minutes. I had mixed the nuts and sugar and cinnamon up the night before (in a ziploc bag which made coating the biscuits and cleanup easy!) and baked the bread the next morning. It took about 5 minutes per can of biscuits bearing in mind that I cut them in half so that added a bit of time. I made a couple of adjustments to the recipe: Used 2 teaspoons of cinnamon because I like LOTS of cinnamon flavor and this just didn't quite seem like enough. Also, I cut the biscuits in half so I could capture more of the cinnamon mixture and this seemed just perfect. I used pecans for the nuts. Also, I'm a sucker for a glaze so mixed one up with 2 T. melted butter, 1 T. plus 1 teasp. hot water, 1 teasp. vanilla and one cup of powdered sugar. Mixed this all together in a pyrex measuring cup (in which I had melted the butter in the microwave) then drizzled it all over the bread after it was baked and removed to a serving plate. YUM!! Baked it in a tube pan for 45 minutes and it came out perfect. Can I just say that this was an absolute hit at work this morning? I brought it in for my department and noticed some "outsiders" coming into our area for no "apparent" reason! Ha! Thanks for sharing!
  5. This was such a wonderful breadfast for us. I did add a pkg of butterscotch pudding to the cinnamon sugar mixture (something my mom always did) but otherwise followed your recipe. My family loved it. Thank you for sharing a family memory with us.


<p>I live in Pa (outside of Philadelphia) and cooking, baking, cross-stitching and reading are my hobbies. <br /> <br />I collect cookbooks and cookie stamps/cutters and have a pretty big collection of both. I am also a fan of all things Amish, so I have quite a collection of things picked up in Reading, Lancaster and surrounding areas here in Pennsylvania. <br /> <br />I have 4 kids, who are the loves of my life and cooking for them and my husband keeps me on my toes! ;) <br /> <br />We bought an ice cream parlor in March 04 and it's been quite an experience! <br /> <br />Note: I love getting feedback on my recipes; all I ask is that you actually *make* them before reviewing them. <br /> <br />Also, if you make changes or substitutions, I'd love to see your suggestions and/or comments, but I'd appreciate no rating at all if it's not made as posted. Too many recipe reviews state margarine subbed for butter (if I list butter, it's REAL butter), different spices, low-fat ingredients, whole wheat flour instead of white, etc. The recipes will not work/taste as intended, so it's really not fair to rate them as such. <br /> <br />I'd also really appreciate it if you refrain from rating a recipe if you overcook or overbake it or it you don't refrigerate or store as listed. <br /> <br />I, of course, will adhere to the above when rating recipes, too! <br /> <br />Thanks and have a great day! <br /> <br />My Rating System: <br /> <br />***** A delicious recipe that was thoroughly enjoyed. It has excellent, detailed directions and is perfect as is. If a dish is especially easy, and I'm on the fence, I will give it 5* for ease even if it's very good instead of great. Something I will definitely make again. <br /> <br />**** Excellent recipe but confusing directions that I will make again in my own less confusing way OR Very good recipe that I'll probably make again if I find the time! <br /> <br />*** Good/OK recipe but probably not something I would make again OR Very Good recipe that doesn't have clear, detailed directions. <br /> <br />** Recipe was edible but not really enjoyed and will not be made again. Work involved not a good trade-off for the end result. <br /> <br />* Not edible and probably an error in the recipe. I feel that I pick recipes with ingredients our family likes, so in my opinion, there's an error somewhere. If there's a chance I made the error, I won't rate the recipe. ;) <br /> <br /><img src=http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y164/lauralie41/swapbanner.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /> <br /><a href=http://s224.photobucket.com/albums/dd235/MidwestMaven/?action=view&amp;current=cookieswapparticip.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd235/MidwestMaven/cookieswapparticip.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/honey-pot-print-c10069558.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /> <br /><a href=http://s224.photobucket.com/albums/dd235/MidwestMaven/?action=view&amp;current=09holidayparticipationbanner.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd235/MidwestMaven/09holidayparticipationbanner.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a></p>
