Recipe Box, Lemon Sugar Biscuit Bubbles

I made these for the boys for a St. Patrick’s Day breakfast treat, but they could be iced and decorated to represent any special occasion or holiday

These little pillows of lemony heaven will definitely brighten your day!

You can make a lot or a little~

I used a mini can of biscuit dough {5 biscuits}

If you want to use Grands biscuits, they will be slightly bigger

or you can cut them into 6ths

Mix sugar and fresh lemon zest in a large ziplock bag or bowl and add dough pieces

Coat the biscuit pieces well and put them in a greased dish

Distribute any remaining lemon sugar over dough

Pour melted butter over all

Bake for 15 minutes and check doneness

I assembled mine the night before I baked them

so they were cold when they went into the oven

mine took 25 minutes


You can serve them just like this

Or with Butter Lemon Icing

Or with icing AND sprinkles!

They’re sorta soft

sorta crunchy

sugary buttery lemony good!

    Jenna, when we were growing up, when we wanted “doughnuts”, Mom would poke a hole in a canned biscuit and deep fry them and roll them in cinnamon sugar. We thought they were the best doughnuts. I am filing your lemon recipe in my file. Yummy! Hugs dear friend.
