When my mom dropped her homemade rolls while on the way to my house one Thanksgiving, I improvised and whipped up a batch of these buttery bite-sized biscuits. Since then they've been part of our traditional Thanksgiving meal.
"Cranberries add a delightful tartness to this coffee cake that is a Christmas morning tradition for my family," writes Anne Keenan from Nevada City, California.

This coffee cake is a sure hit. I used to prepare it for special occasions only. But now I try to bake it whenever I know overnight company is coming. It's always appreciated at breakfast the following morning.

THIS RECIPE has been handed down through my family, and I've had it for almost 50 years.
My husband and I especially like these popovers for a late breakfast or brunch, but they're great with soup or salad. Simply served with butter and honey, they're delicious anytime.
