"My mother found this recipe on a package of canned biscuits back in the 1950s and our family has been making this recipe for 60 years! It is a favorite of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

I was a Tupperware dealer back in the 1970s and shared it at many parties - and it was a favorite of many people I shared it with.
It is so quick and easy - and turns out perfectly every time!"

"My grandmother made this recipe when the grandkids were all kids. This is an old, old recipe. It's also a fabulous recipe!! It's super rich and is basically a dessert. I made it once in a baking dish because my muffin tin was no longer fit for use. I liked it even better in the casserole dish."

"I tried this long ago and everyone I serve it to loves it!! I make it several times a year- quick and easy! Also- to make the holes in the biscuts I use the handle of a wooden spoon and push the biscuit down slightly to get the juice in the hole. Yum!!"
