4 cans biscuits – cheap ones (you may not can fit them all)
1 tsp. cinnamon
2/3 c. sugar
1/2 cup melted butter or margarine
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened (we might use a little more)
3/4 cup orange juice
Optional – chopped pecans
3/4 cup sifted confectioners sugar
1 Tbsp orange juice
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
*You may want to double this.
Preheat oven to 425°. Grease a bundt pan or tube pan well. Combine cinnamon and sugar (and chopped pecans if you like). Remove biscuits from can and dip each biscuit in melted butter/margarine and then dip in sugar and cinnamon mix. Stand biscuits on their sides in the pan. Place a dollop of cream cheese between each biscuit and the next. Once you have placed all the biscuits in the pan, pour the orange juice over the top all around.
Bake this for 20 minutes (depending on your oven) or until golden brown. The biscuits will rise out of the pan – so I always put the pan on a cookie sheet. Once it is done turn this out on a plate and pour the icing over the top.
*You know, you have to tweak this recipe for your family. We might use a little more or a little less of any given item. Sometimes I can get better biscuits on sale – they will be bigger and it might only take two cans. You may need more sugar/cinnamon mixture for dredging or you might want a glob of cream cheese and not a dollop.
))) Just have fun with it! It is such an easy recipe and now the girls like to make it first thing in the morning. They all get in there and just have a blast! Then when they have it made and put it in the oven – we all have our songs, prayer and they can open their gifts.
