  • 8 tbsp butter divided
  • 1 pkg homestyle biscuits
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Melt 3 tbsp butter and pour it in the bottom of a glass pie pan or casserole dish and swirl to coat the sides
  • Use kitchen shears or a knife to cut the biscuits into quarters
  • Roll each piece of biscuit into a ball
  • Melt 4 tbsp butter in a small dish
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon
  • Roll each biscuit ball into the melted butter then coat with the sugar mixture and place in the prepared dish
  • Continue until all of the biscuits have been coated and placed in the dish
  • Cover and refrigerate
  • When ready to bake, remove the cover from the dish
  • Melt 1 tbsp of butter and drizzle it over the biscuits
  • Place the dish in the oven, then set the heat to 350F (make sure NOT to preheat the oven as the cold baking dish going into a hot oven could shatter)
  • Bake for about 30-45 minutes, until the biscuits are done in the center and the mixture is bubbly
  • Meanwhile, in a small mixing bowl, whisk the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract to make an icing
  • When the biscuits are done baking, drizzle with the icing and serve warm
