INGREDIENTS:

One 16.3 ounce can Pillsbury Grands! We like Flaky Layers Original Biscuits

2)      As that’s heating, mix the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.

3)      Take each of the biscuits and cut them into quarters, then deep fry until golden brown on each side.

4)      Remove with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain.

5)      Next, one at a time roll them around in the cinnamon sugar to coat, or shake some on top.
