REMEMBER TO TURN THE AN AWAY FROM YOU WHEN FLIPPING THIS ONTO A PLATE!! I SUFFERED 2nd degree burns from the hot liquid landing on my shoulder even after I let this cool some! This is seriously dangerous. I have made this recipe at least 100 times and I laughed at the review I read on here that said another woman got severe burns thinking she must've been ignorant. That same night I was sorry I laughed...just trying to keep this from happening to others. Read More

Very Good and it's so easy. Next time I'll probably add nuts and make a topping of sorts. I made it in a bundt pan and cooked it for almost an hour. 30 minutes is what's on the recipe but it was way to gooey at that point. Read More

Great snack. My husband loved it! But I think I could've cooked them a little longer for more crispy edges. Read More

Another thing you may want to try---get an 8oz box of cream cheese. Cut into squares and place a square in the center of each biscuit. I have also added a tad bit of Maple Exact to melted brown sugar and butter. YUMMM-OH!!! Read More

made one loaf pan of chocolate chip and one with cream cheese in the middle. Cream cheese rules. I only put cream cheese in half of the tiny pieces. I also made Creamy Cream cheese frosting to dip it in. Wonderful way to end the sleepover party! Read More

Ate some this morning. Amazing! Last night I put the sugar and spice mix in a big ziploc and shook the biscuit pieces around. Then loaded up the pan and refrigerated overnight. This morning poured the butter spice mix over top and threw it in the oven. Came out wonderful! Read More
