Here is a fun recipe for you and your kids to do for Christmas morning or for anytime for that matter.


3 (12oz) packages refrigerated biscuit dough

1C white sugar

2 tsps ground cinnamon

1/2C butter (or margarine)

1C packed brown sugar

1/2C chopped walnuts (opt)

1/2C raisins or dried cranberries (opt)


1.      Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 1~ 9 or 10” tube or Bundt pan.

2.      Mix white sugar and cinnamon in a plastic bag. Cut biscuits into quarters (or smaller). Shake 6 to 8 biscuit pieces in the sugar cinnamon mix. Arrange pieces in the bottom of the prepared pan. Continue until all biscuits are coated and placed in pan. If using nuts & raisins, arrange them in and among the biscuit pieces as you go along.

3.      In a small saucepan, melt the butter with the brown sugar over medium heat. Boil 1 min. Pour over the biscuits.

4.      Bake at 350 degrees F for 35 mins. Let bread cool in pan for 10 mins, then turn out onto a plate. Do not cut! The bread will pull apart easily.
