These biscuits are a special treat with a ham dinner, but they're also delicious just by themselves. They're often requested by my five children and seven grandchildren. I've been enjoying them since the 1940's. —Winifred Brown, Wilmette, Illinois

"To littlewind53: It seems to indicate that one has rolled out the dough into a square and topped with the melted butter. Then combine the cinnamon ( last ingredient) with the 1/4 c. of remaining sugar(from the 3/4 cup that was divided at the top of instructions). Then you roll the dough and slice."

"These sound delish and I want to try them, but I have a question about step 3. "Sprinkle cinnamon over butter. Roll up." Seems there is only MELTED butter left at the end of ingredient list, so what are we to roll up? Please clarify. Thanks."
