I usually eat this as a dessert. It is quick, easy and delicious. ***I feel that it is important to make a couple of notes*** It does say on the side of the Grands biscuit can - not to microwave the biscuits. I have never had an issue - the biscuits do get done. But just thought I would mention this in case someone was a bit leery about microwaving them. Secondly - after the 8 minutes of cooking if the biscuits still feel a bit raw to the touch - microwave a couple more minutes, but no more because they will get tough and dried out.
