Step Two: prepare the biscuits.
- Start by using a fork to combine the sugar and one tablespoon of the pumpkin pie spice in a shallow bowl.
- Open up the tube of biscuits and seperate the biscuits. Then cut each biscuit into six cubes.
- Toss or drag each of the cubes in the sugar mixture.
- Evenly distribute the cubes among the prepared muffins cups.
Step Three: top and bake the muffins.
