I found this recipe in Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet cookbook. I made the recipe exactly as written but my finished product didn't look anything like the picture...however...they did look like Danish pastries that we get at our local bakery....I couldn't get a whole teaspoon of preserves in the holes so used about 1/2 tsp, which was plenty. I drizzled them with almond flavored icing..I should have removed them from the pan and let them cool on a wire rack for the 15 minutes but didn't so I ended up having to forcibly remove them with a spatula...next time I'll remove them from the pan after 2-3 minutes and finish cooling on the rack. But they are DELICIOUS. It was hard to eat just two. Give them a try.

Great and easy recipe. Varied the jam with raspberry, strawberry and blueberry. Used 16 oz. can and needed a bit more sugar/cinnamon mix. Had some butter left over and drizzled it over biscuits prior to baking. Yummy goodness. Widened hole on top for jam so no spill over.

Tasty, even though 2/3 of mine "Failed." The biscuits in our tubes are often in odd shapes (trapezoidal, etc.) , without an obvious "top" or "bottom." So, even though they started with fruit on top, they eventually pushed it our or baked out sideways, pouring the conserve over the side.

I used cherry preserves and then once cooled, I drizzled melted chocolate over each one.

Love these little jewels! So quick and easy! I had leftover cherry pie filling from a cheesecake that I was able to use up. Definitely needs the cinnamon/sugar though, because it's a plain biscuit.

haven't made these yet. How well do these store and do they have to be stored in ref?

Love, Love Love!!!!!! I made them twice, first time as written..Mmmm. Second time, I mix cream cheese with powdered sugar and vanilla extract and placed a small dollop underneath the strawberry preserves...OMG!! Next time, I will use cherry and blueberry preserves/jam.

These are so easy to make with ingredients most of us have. I did use abut 1/2 tsp of cream cheese before I topped with strawberry preserves. Very tasty. My husband loved them. So definitely will make these again.
