I Knew I Bought All Those Biscuits For A Reason

1 Oct

Currently, you can get a great deal on canned biscuits at Publix by combining the following coupons:

Pillsbury Grands! Biscuits, 12 to 17.3 oz, 4/$5
-$1/3 Pillsbury Refrigerated Grands or Grands Jr. Biscuits
-$2/3 Pillsbury Refrigerated Dough Items 9/16/2012, coupon sheet or Printable Publix Coupon

Buy 3 & pay $0.75 for all three cans! Not a bad deal in my book.

I was stalking glancing over one of my favorite food blogs the other day & came across this recipe. My mind immediately went to all that biscuit dough squished into cans on the top shelf of my fridge & I prepared to get to work. 

I didn’t have pre-made cinnamon butter but that was no biggie. As I was collecting the butter, cinnamon & sugar, I started thinking about what else I could stuff into these biscuits to make them fabulous. Nutella? Yep. Chocolate chips, why not? I always have those. Why not make a savory version? Good Idea. Then I patted myself on the back for being so clever. You do that too right?

In the end, I made 3 variations of these pull-apart biscuit/roll thingies. All 3 were easy to make, tasted delicious & I would imagine that you could pretty much stuff these suckers with whatever tickled your fancy that day & they’d still be great.

There is no measurement for most of the ingredients that I used. But it’s super simple. Promise. Here’s how I made ’em…

Cinnamon Sugar Rolls inspired by bakedbree.com

  • 1 can Pillsbury Grands Biscuits
  • butter
  • brown sugar
  • cinnamon sugar mixture – 1 tbsp granulated sugar + 1 tsp cinnamon

Directions

Preheat oven to 350

Roll out biscuits slightly with a rolling-pin, wine bottle, sauce jar, whatever you have on hand. They don’t need to be completely flat, just flat enough that you can roll them up.

Spread a little butter all over the top of the biscuit.

Sprinkle some brown sugar on top of the butter followed by some of the cinnamon sugar mixture.

Roll up the biscuit & lay it seam side down.

Slice biscuit into thirds & place those three pieces into a muffin pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray.

Bake for 14-17 minutes

For Glaze: Whisk together 1/2 cup of powdered sugar & 2-3 tbsps of water or milk. Drizzle over the rolls.

Chocolate Rolls

  • 1 can Pillsbury Grands Biscuits
  • Nutella
  • chocolate chips (I used semi sweet)

Directions

Roll out biscuits slightly.

Spread a layer of Nutella on top & sprinkle on some chocolate chips.

Roll up biscuit, slice into thirds, put each third into a muffin pan sprayed with non-stick spray.

Bake at 350 for 14-17 minutes

Savory Pull Apart Dinner Rolls

  • 1 can Pillsbury Grands Biscuits
  • butter
  • Italian seasoning
  • minced garlic (I used the pre-minced stuff in the jar)

Directions

Roll out biscuits slightly.

Spread a layer of butter on top.

Sprinkle garlic & Italian seasoning over the butter.

Roll up, slice into thirds, place all three pieces in a muffin pan sprayed with non-stick spray.

Bake at 350 for 14-17 minutes

This is what your biscuit should look like just before you roll it up.

Ready for the oven.
