"I ripped the page out of the magazine that this recipe was on over 15 years ago and make it every Thanksgiving and Christmas morning. Everyone absolutely loves it!!! Even tastes great the next day. I always make two huge pans just so there's leftovers."

"I tried this recipe last night, I substituted a few things that I don't have in my kitchen, Used walnuts instead of pecans, 1/3 C brown sugar, 1/3 C dark karo syrup and used 2 large tube of cinnamon rolls instead of biscuits cause I don't have it and omited sugar and cinnamon altogether. It turned up wonderful by 10 Am this morning it's all but a memory, my kids loved it "
