I've been making this special breakfast treat since I was a teenager. With chocolate chips and cinnamon in the middle and on top, it never fails to please all ages. —Trish Quinn, Middletown, Pennsylvani

    The sugar is 1 cup in dough and 1/2 cup in topping. The recipe was in M/A 99' Quick Cooking. My family loves it!!

    This recipe requires the sugar to be divided but fails to mention how much to use in each part of the recipe.
