    Very Good. I did add all 3 tablespoons of the cinnamon sugar to the dough, but still used additional cinnamon sugar on the tops of the biscuits. I also omitted the pecans. Then I mistakenly rolled out the dough to 1/4 inch. When I realized I had too many biscuits, I just placed one on top of another to make them 1/2 inch thick. This added extra cinnamon sugar to the middles, which was fine with us. My "mistakes" ended up working out, so I would probably make them the same way again.

    To RandiEwing: you probably had old baking powder or soda.

    Tried making these biscuits 3 days in a row but they were awful each time! Did not rise at all...turned out flat, hard cookies! First time TOH has ever let me down!

    This was the first reicpe I tried out of the special issue of Taste of Home in early 2011. I made it for my daughter's class for a snack program, but doubled it so that we'd have some at home as well. They turned out amazing and everyone absolutely loved them! They looked just like the picture and were soft, flaky, with a nice touch of sweetness. I've already been told that I WILL be making these again....and again....and again!!!!!!
