    I loved it, Loved It, Loved It....Yummmy. I did make some changes, to make it low calorie. I used sugar sub (equal and splendar). I've been looking for a recipe that was quick and easy this one was perfect. So, Yummy with my coffee Easter moring. I dld make some spice changes. I used cinnamon instead of apple pie spice and changed the butter to low cal butter sub. I cut each biscuit in four pieces. I put six pieces in each muffin cup. And as a Weight Watcher each muffin was only 1 1/2 points. This was so good it truly reminded me of a "REAL" cinnamon roll from the donut shop. Thanks Lindsay. great idea.  -  05 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I used the bread dough from the Cloverleaf Rolls, which is also from this site (I don't usually keep whomp biscuits on hand). Because the recipe made twelve "muffins", I had to double the rest of the ingredients. This was good, though next time I'll just do what I usually do with monkey bread and dip the ball in butter and roll in the sugar/spice blend. I did make a cream cheese drizzle for the top of these which the boys flipped for. It took a little more time with a homemade bread dough but the outcome was great. The kids especially liked these. NOTE: I used my small cookie scoop for this and made three balls in each muffin tin, just like I did for making Cloverleaf Rolls.  -  28 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I didn't have pie spice in my cupboard so I used cinnamon and nutmeg. I used 7 muffin cups but could have spread it out to 8 or 9. These got rave reviews from my kids and my dad. Super easy to make. These do not last long. **Update: Made these again and they fill 9 muffin liners nicely.  -  23 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
