  6. Bridget Williams says:

    Okay, i have to try this soon, so much for dieting..too good to pass up

  7. This sounded so good, I decided to try……tasted delicious……BUT only top layer cooked!!! Ones underneath were raw dough. Followed recipe to a “T” not sure what happened??? We ate first layer and put back in oven, good thing didn’t turn it out and kept it in pan.

  8. When I make this I MELT BUTTER, MIX CIN/SUGAR. I DIP QUARTERED BISQUITS IN BUTTER AND THEN ROLL IN CIN/SUGAR. I bake in a GREASED 13×9 pan. I never do the brown sugar since it’s so sweet.

  9. Another version..
    1/4 cup butter
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    2 T light corn syrup
    2 T cinnamon
    1 can -10 oz- refrigerated buttermilk bisquit
    Place butter in 8″round microwaveable dish. Microwave 1/2 – 3/4 min on high or until butter is melted. Add sugar, corn syrup and cinnamon. Stir until blended. Arrange quartered bisquits in dish. Microwave 6-8 min (MEDIUM) ratating dish after 3 min. Invert dish on plate. Let stand a few min. Remove dish. Serve warm.
