Cindy's Cinnamon - Carmel Rolls
These were a BIG hit at the Palm Sunday Brunch!
A dozen frozen cinnamon rolls.
1 cup of brown sugar
1 cup of heavy cream
1 stick of butter
Melt the sugar, cream and butter together until smooth (but not quite boiling) and pour into a 9 x 13 pan.
Place rolls on top of the mixture and let rise overnight. You can get a dozen in one pan, but they are pretty crowded, so I only put 6-9 in the pan.
In the morning bake at 350 degrees for 25 –30 minutes (until the rolls are golden brown). I usually flip them over onto a cookie sheet while they are still warm.


Dwight's Cheesy Ham Pullapart Biscuits
1 (16.3 oz) Pillsbury Grands Layers Biscuits (I use buttery flavor)
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
¾ cup diced ham
¼ cup thinly sliced green onions
½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
½ cup shredded monterey jack cheese (I shred 4 oz (1/2 block) of cheddar-jack cheese = 1 cup)
½ teaspoon granulated garlic
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 11 x 7 or 12 x 8 glass baking dish with cooking spray. In a large bowl, beat egg and milk with a wire whisk until smooth.
Separate dough into individual biscuits and cut into quarters. Gently stir biscuit pieces into the egg mixture to coat evenly. Fold in ham, cheese, onions, and granulated garlic. Spoon mixture into the prepared dish, arrange biscuit pieces into a single layer.
Bake at 350 degrees for 23-25 minutes, or until golden brown. You can either cut into squares or just pull apart and serve.
I make this dish the previous day, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate (works very well).

Pour over fruit.    Fold gently into fruit.

Dot top with pieces of butter.
Optional-- Strategically Add i jar maraschino cherries  drained
