My grandmother taught me to bake these breakfast buns 70 years ago. Now my granddaughter makes them! This batter is like a biscuit dough and can be made up in a short time. There's no nicer way to wake up in the morning than to the aromas of biscuits baking and coffee perking!

"Is it just me or do these "buns" look more like cookies?"

"I make this recipe and add 1/2 cup choped pecans or black walnut chips for a change of pace. They also store well in storage bags to use as snacks anytime."
