I love cream cheese, and these are so quick and easy to make. They are so ooey gooey when they first come out of the oven.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Refrigerated biscuits are transformed in this easy dessert. Kids will love these! Cream cheese is stuffed inside the biscuit and they're rolled in cinnamon sugar. Once baked, they taste like a Mardi Gras King Cake or a cinnamon donut. They can be eaten hot or cold. Besides serving for dessert, these would be a nice brunch treat.
