Pillsbury Mini Grands Biscuits--Review, Recipe, and a Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed!
As a member of My Blog Spark, I had a chance once again to review a great product, as well as a giveaway to share.

Pillsbury and My Blog Spark sent me a coupon good for a free bag of frozen Pillsbury Mini Grands Biscuits, a bread basket, butter dish and spreader, and a $15 Visa gift card to buy any additional ingredients I may want to use with the biscuits.

I first tried the biscuits alone...

...or to be honest--smothered in butter and fresh fruit spread or honey. I bought a new bottle of local honey and it was so good on these fresh made hot biscuits. And since I'm home alone most of the time during the week, I really enjoyed being able to bake just as few (or as many!) as I wanted with no extra or leftovers to deal with.
I think these bite sized biscuits would be perfect to serve at a holiday brunch, or maybe to kids to tend to enjoy "kid-sized" foods. Or you could even make this yummy "goodie" that I came up with...


  • 6 Pillsbury frozen Mini Grands biscuits
  • 2 T butter or margarine, melted
  • 2 T sugar
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • handful of pecans

In a individual sized oven-proof bowl, greased or sprayed with cooking spray, throw in about 6-8 pecan halves. You can use chopped pecans if you have them--halves were all I had already open, and I didn't want to dirty up the chopper for just these few, so I just used halves. Mix together sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl or on a saucer. Dip each frozen mini-biscuit in melted butter, turning to coat, then roll in sugar cinnamon mixture, and place in the oven-proof bowl. Sprinkle a a few nuts on top or between the biscuits. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.

Regular mini-biscuits are ready in about 20 minutes, but I allowed some extra time because of the way these were stacked on top of each other. I checked them more by feel than anything else, since I couldn't tell from browning. Cover with a small inverted plate/saucer, then flip the whole thing over and gently lift the bowl off.

The only thing better than the way this looked is the way it tasted--delicious! And because I used the mini biscuits, I could make as much, or as little, as I needed.

And now for the giveaway---Pillsbury and MyBlogSpark will give one lucky reader the same prize package I received--bread basker, butter dish and spreader, $15 Visa giftcard, and coupon for a free package of Pillsbury frozen Mini Grands biscuits.
