Ingredients:  
4 tubes of refrigerator biscuits (10 in each tube), 1 cup sugar, 1/4 cup cinnamon, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup chopped nuts, 1/4 cup butter or margarine.

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 375. Put the butter in a 9 x 13 baking dish and put the pan in the oven for a few minutes, until the butter melts. Remove the pan from the oven and add the brown sugar and nuts to the melted butter and mix well. Set aside. Put the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and mix well. With kitchen shears, cut each biscuit into four pieces. Drop the pieces (only four pieces at a time) into the sugar mixture and coat them well. Transfer the sugar-coated biscuits to the baking dish and arrange in a single layer over the butter mixture. Repeat until all biscuit pieces are squeezed into the pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until biscuits are no longer "mushy". Immediately place a large platter on top of the baking dish and carefully invert the contents onto the platter. The melted butter, brown sugar and nuts are now on top. Take a spatula to quickly scrape the remaining melted butter mixture from the bottom and sides of the pan, and spread it over the biscuits. Instead of cutting with a knife, pull each serving apart!

Personal Notes:
The prep time will go faster if you enlist the help of others (even kids) when cutting and coating the biscuits. You can work assembly-line fashion. Later, be careful when inverting the pan--the melted butter/sugar mixture is VERY HOT. Work quickly, as the remaining mixture will solidify into a hard candy as it cools and be difficult to remove from the pan!
