MeMe Melinda's Angel Biscuits/Cinnamon Rolls

Recipe passed down. Had to experiment to get it right. Hope you enjoy as our family does.
Serving size depends on amount of dough you choose to use. Recipe is enough for a 9" dish of rolls and 9" pan of biscuits.
Not sure about prep & bake time. Never timed it. Sorry. I grew up with my mom, aunt, and grandma making these. We each have our own style and adjust recipe accordingly. Enjoy!
