Because these sweet treats are so easy, I'm almost embarrassed when people ask me for the recipe. They're a snap to make with refrigerated buttermilk biscuits, sugar, cinnamon and your favorite fruit preserves. —Ione Burham, Washington, Iowa

"I think this is a great base recipe. I did some biscuits exactly as written, but others I substituted different ingredients in. For one I put in pieces of chocolate, on another I did a layer of cream cheese, then the strawberry preserves. I haven't tried the chocolate one yet, but the cream cheese and strawberry was VERY good. I'll be using this recipe again in the future, especially if I have leftover biscuits!"

"I substituted cardamom for the cinnamon and used orange marmalade in place of the strawberry preserves. They looked, smelled, and tasted wonderful. I will definitely make these again."

"My husband does not like buttermilk biscuits but ate four of these at one sitting. They are so easy and are great as snack or breakfast food -- best served right from the oven."
