I just had to try this Jodi, and I'm very happy with the results.

They are going to be a big hit with our study groups who often pull all-niters before a big test. If they eat too heavily,

they get sleepy, so just a small treat with coffee or tea is perfect. Since it's always difficult to determine how many will show up, making an entire batch of cinnamon rolls is not always called for, but this will work for those times. They are actually quite good too. My son suggested that I make a thin sugar glaze to pour over the top while they're still warm. That also works well.

I found that cutting the biscuits into the long strips was much easier to accomplish if you use kitchen shears or scissors.

Thank you so much for sharing.
