Cinnamon Sugar Pull Aparts

My husband's second job is teaching. He is a professor at two colleges, one a community college and the other a university. He teaches nights and weekends, in his spare time ;) His last Saturday morning class was this weekend and he asked me if I would fix a simple snack for the class. I decided on these pull aparts. Pretty much everyone loves cinnamon and sugar with bread so I thought it might appeal to everyone. It did and they loved them. These would be a great addition to a buffet breakfast or a tasty late night snack.

Cinnamon Sugar Pull Aparts

1/2 cup sugar
2 1/2 tsps. cinnamon
1/3 cup melted butter
1 can (12 oz) refrigerated buttermilk flaky biscuits

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Generously grease or spray a square glass baking pan.

In a small bowl, combine the cinnamon and sugar and blend well.

Separate dough into 10 buscuits and cut each into quarters. Dip each quarter into the melted butter then dip into the cinnamon sugar mixture. Arrange in the baking pan so they are touching.

Bake for 19 to 27 minutes. When done, let cool. Remove the pull aparts from the pan and serve on a plate.

Makes about 10 servings.

Yum. And I love the quote. Especially because Kurt and I shared a Cinnabon on our first date. I think that's how he got me, lol. I will have to make these for him!

Sounds like something I will have to remember when I make up a snack for my class this fall! Thanks for sharing.

Anita, thank you. I hope your class loves them as my husband's did.

These look wonderful, Mary Ann. And I have all the ingredients to make them! I'm going to next time we have company--if I make them for just the two of us, we'll eat them all. :-)

And, as always, I love your quote.

P.S. Just wanted to tell you I'm sorry you're going through some hard times---I said a prayer for you this morning.

Beth, thank you so much. It warms my heart to know you said a prayer for me. I keep thinking, this too shall pass. And it will.
