Pretty quick and realistic doughnuts.
We have made these too! Yum!

We do the doughnut thing every couple of weekends using the el'cheapo store brand biscuits - delicious treat!

We've done yummy taco cups by pressing Grands into muffin cups and baking for a bit and then filling with taco meat and toppings. A friend of mine does the same and fills them with barbecue.

Going to try the pizza soon ...

Well, in that case, you are forgiven.

Do you use the frozen ones or the refrigerated ones?

Next time I come across a coupon I will give it a try.
I have used the crescent rolls to make pizza when in a hurry. Just unroll on the pizza pan. I partially bake it beforehand to keep the crust from getting soggy. However, I must say that I do prefer a homemade crust when time allows

are the pizzas made with the grands biscuits better than the ones made with english muffins? i like the idea of quick and easy mini pizzas.

I was just going to say, I like making mini pizzas with English muffins, since they get crispy.

A friend of ours made Sunday breakfast treats by cutting refrigerated biscuits into quarters, then shaking them in a baggie of cinnamon sugar and baking that.

Chopper, I LOVE the faux Danish idea. Putting cream cheese and biscuits on the list.
