TAKE ONE CAN OF BISCUITS.....
....Or you may call 'em "Pillsbury dough".......
When in AK, (and Canada or LA before that) I used 'em in a multitude of ways: from *dumplings in stews, to *pull-apart herb/cheese bread, *breakfast biscuits with country gravy, *steamed with a Chinese filling, or pushed into *muffin tins with a bacon/onion/cheese/sundried tomato topping.
What wondrous delights have YOU made with the product???

MONKEY BREAD -
This is a traditional family favorite from yesteryear! The recipe has been scaled down from the original, full-sized bundt pan size to a 5x7 loaf pan. Great for singles and small households! As the old saying goes - "I like seafood...I see it, I eat it!" With a smaller version such as this recipe makes, there is less to "see" therefore, less to "eat"!
Preheat oven to 350 (countertop/toaster oven is perfect for this size recipe)
Prepare 5x7 loaf pan as you prefer...well buttered is the best!
You will need -
1 tube refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (regular or "grands") "Grands" produce a "taller" bread.
1/3 C sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 C finely chopped pecans (any nutmeat you prefer works)
2/3 stick unsalted butter, melted
2 Tbsp brown sugar (dark is preferred, but again, your choice)
Remove biscuits from package and separate.
Cut each biscuit into 4 pieces.
Combine sugar, cinnamon, and pecans in a small bowl.
Dip each biscuit piece into the melted butter, then into the sugar/cinnamon/pecan mixture.
Drop coated biscuit pieces into a well buttered loaf pan.
Put leftover sugar mixture, leftover butter, and the brown sugar in a small saucepan over low heat.
Bring just to a boil; remove from heat immediately.
Drizzle over roll pieces.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown on top.
After "resting" for a couple of minutes...the bread, not you
...turn pan over and the bread will slip right out.
While the bread is resting, you may want to brew coffee or pour a large glass of icy cold milk...

i made donuts out of canned biscuits for my kids for years.
1 can biscuits
oil for deep frying
Use the lid of a two liter soda bottle to cut the center out of each biscuit. Heat oil in deep fryer till it shimmers (about 350F). Carefully drop dough pieces into hot oil, 2 or 3 at a time. Turn over as each floats to the top and remove when golden brown. They cook fast -- only a minute or so per side. Drain on paper towels.
Donuts can be shaken in a bag of powdered sugar, or in a mixture of cinnamon sugar. To make a simple icing, combine a cup of sifted powdered sugar, a dash of salt, one-half teaspoon vanilla flavoring and milk - a teaspoon at a time- until drizzling consistency.
Each biscuit can also be cut into fourths to make donut "holes".

My favorite is a quick pot pie. I make it different nearly every time.
1 or 2 rolls of biscuits, cut into quarters
1 cup leftover cooked chicken (or leftover lamb, pot roast, pork roast)
2 cups chopped potatoes, carrots, celery, onion; steamed or microwaved til JUST cooked
1 can of cream of mushroom soup
1 can of cream of celery soup (I substitute chicken or asparagus or whatever I happen to have on hand)
thyme, pepper, garlic salt (to taste)
Mix the soups and spices in a large baking dish. Add chicken and vegetables, bake in oven at 350 until bubbly (about 25-30 min) then remove from oven. Throw on biscuit chunks until well covered, then return to oven for another 12-15 minutes, or until biscuits are brown.

Good finger food: - veggie pizza
Roll out and press together to make a big rectangle. Bake. Cool. Smear with cream cheese. Put small bits of pretty colored veggies on top. Enjoy! Easy, pretty and yummy.

We made the veggie pizza with crescent roll dough -- it's flakier. And we added dry ranch-dressing mix into the cream cheese. Love it. Mmmm.....
I also used to make my kids biscuit doughnuts using the refrigerator biscuits, but I never bothered cutting a hole -- I just stuck my thumb through the biscuit and stretched the dough a little into a doughnut shape and then fried it and shook it in a paper bag with a little cinnamon and sugar. Most of the Chinese buffet-style restaurants around here serve sugar-coated deep-fried biscuits as a dessert.
