Barb Royer's Incredible Cinnamon Pull-Aparts

I learned this recipe from my mother. It is incredibly delicious. If your mom didn't teach you this recipe, perhaps you need a word with her about adequate parenting.


2 pkg exploding biscuits (e.g.)
1 cup sugar (or a little less)
2-3 Tbsp cinnamon
1/4 lb butter

Adjust cinnamon and sugar to taste.
  1. Pre-heat oven to temperature on biscuit package.
  2. Melt butter in microwave.
  3. Mix cinnamon and sugar.
  4. Have your wife open the biscuits.
  5. With a fork, dip biscuits in butter, then cinnamon & sugar (be generous with both), and place in a 9" round baking pan, glass if possible. Cram them in - if the pan seems spacious enough to hold all the biscuits, it is too large.
  6. Sprinkle leftover cinnamon & sugar over biscuits (if there is much left, you weren't generous enough).
  7. Bake. The package directions are a reasonable guideline on time, but stop while biscuits are still underdone. You want gooey. A glass pan will extend baking time significantly.

  1. Please note: Having a wife is not strictly necessary for making this recipe.

    In this case, step 4 involves your wife because she enjoys the suspense of not knowing when the exploding biscuits will explode, and your tender heart isn't up to the drama.

    This may not apply in all cases. If you have a tender heart and no wife, let me know, and I'll come over to help.

  2. I am glad you clarified this. Ben wanted to make these this morning and I informed him he couldn't (due to him being incapable of pulling off step 4). However, I am the one who, like Reid, is not so much a fan of the drama of exploding biscuits. We would call you, but I think Ben can handle it...
