  • 1 16 oz can of biscuits (regular, not the layered kind but the regular). We use "Grands"
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • A few spoonfuls of canned cream cheese frosting optional
  • Yellow Purple, Green Sprinkles


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with nonstick foil or parchment paper.
  • Open the biscuits and lay them flat on the foil. Press them into a large circle (about 12 inches) or into a giant rectangle. We've done it both ways.
  • Brush the dough with butter, then mix sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle evenly over dough.Lay babies somewhere on the dough.
  • Roll the dough up into a cylinder and pinch as tightly as possible to seal. Shape the cylinder into a circle.
  • Bake for 35 minutes. Let cool slightly, then spoon icing over top and let it fall down sides. Sprinkle sugar on top.
  • Ready to eat! It tastes best shortly after being made, but also tastes good the next day.
