  • 4 8-oz tubes Refrigerator Biscuits
  • 3/4 cup Granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1/3 cup Brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup Evaporated milk
  • 1 cup Butter or margarine
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups Pecans
  • 2 teaspoons Cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Grease, butter or spray a bundt, tube or bread pan; preferably a pan with non-stick coating. Mix 3/4 white sugar and cinnamon in a plastic bag.
  3. Cut biscuits into quarters (if using large biscuits like Grands, cut into 6-8 pieces).
  4. Shake 6 to 8 biscuit pieces in the sugar cinnamon mix.
  5. Arrange pieces in the bottom of the prepared pan.
  6. Continue until all biscuits are coated and placed in pan.
  7. Do not pack pieces together, but leave some space between the dough pieces.
  8. If using pecans, arrange them in and among the biscuit pieces as you go along.
  9. In a saucepan, slowly bring milk, remaining 3/4 cup white sugar, brown sugar, and butter to a boil and cook for 1 minute.
  10. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla.
  11. Pour over biscuits in the pan.
  12. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30-40 minutes, or until golden brown on the top.
  13. Remove from oven and flip over on to a larger platter.
  14. Let sit with pan on top for a few minutes while the sweet mixture runs down the bread.
  15. Do not cut! The bread just pulls apart.
  16. Makes 8 to 10 servings..
