  1. Separate biscuits and cut in quarters. In a bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Roll biscuit pieces in cinnamon sugar to coat, and drop them in a greased Bundt pan. Make sure they are distributed evenly.
  2. On the stove top, heat the butter, brown sugar and sugar to a boil until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and stir in MUSSELMAN'S Apple Butter. Pour mixture over the dough, and bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes, turn upside down onto serving plate, and remove pan.

Dough came out a little dry and it did not reheat well. But it received pretty good reviews at the party I took it to.

Pretty good. I, too, used cinnamon rolls as I had a tube to use up in the fridge. I originally planned on this recipe to use up applesauce as well (using applesauce instead of apple butter), but I didn't have enough applesauce for this recipe, so I used pumpkin butter. It's very good but almost sickeningly sweet. I guess that's not too surprising, as there is a lot of sugar in the sauce, but I wonder if eliminating the apple butter (or pumpking butter) makes it less sweet and more palatable. Either way, I'd do less sugar next time. I had to bake these a little longer--maybe because of the cinnamon rolls. I made a half recipe. thanks for the recipe!

This recipe tastes marvelous! Only changes I made was substituing cinnamon rolls for the biscuts (it makes the bread softer and sweeter) and removing the extra cinnamon. Otherwise, a terrific recipe!

This was great! I didn't have apple butter either, but it was fantastic without it. Thanks for the recipe!

This is a new Christmas morning tradition for my family! This bread was awesome!! The Apple Butter makes for a nice different flavor beyond just sweet and cinnamon. I had a hard time finding 12oz refridgerated biscuits, but after checking every single tube in the section I finally found them.

tasted excellent! I was looking for something me and my 3 yr old daughter could make together that would be easy (I'm a guy and haven't had to much experience) it was the perfect choice and tasted great!!

Love this recipe! I would make a few changes though. I have made it twice now and both times I have come out with extra dry sugar topping. I would cut it down to 1/2 cup at least and I only used half of the cinnamon. My mom loved and thought the same, but neither one of us are big fans of cinnamon. I would highly recommend this to everyone.
