Breakfast Buns Recipe

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! — Dorothy McGinnis, West Haven, Connecticut

"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."
