#1 Cinnamon Whole Grain-Rich Toasty Biscuits

A simple cinnamon butter baked-on topping turns plain biscuits into spectacular, flaky breakfast treats.

1/2 cup  Butter, unsalted, softened

1/2 cup  Sugar

2 Tbsp  McCormick Ground Cinnamon (472248; 472251)

1 tray  General Mills Pillsbury™ ZT Whole Grain Mini 

Baked Biscuits (999180), thawed

Remove plastic overwrap from thawed biscuits. Place biscuit tray on parchment-lined half sheet pan. Microwave butter for 20 seconds. In small bowl, mix butter, sugar and cinnamon together. Spread butter mixture evenly over biscuits using an offset spatula. Bake at 375°F for 6-12 minutes. Makes 35 servings (1 oz each).

#2 Better than the Snooze Button Smoothies 

A cherry-chocolate pairing. Great for serving after the clocks spring forward! 

10 cups Canned Cherries, drained 

1/4 cup Cocoa Powder 

1 bag General Mills Yoplait® ParfaitPro® Lowfat Vanilla Yogurt (904760) 

Chill drained fruit several hours or overnight under refrigeration. Place fruit in large-capacity blender or prepare in batches. Blend on high speed 1 minute; stop blender; stir with spatula; continue to blend until smooth. Measure to verify that pureeing has resulted in 8 cups of fruit; puree additional fruit if necessary. Whisk puree, cocoa and yogurt together in large mixing bowl until smooth. Portion into serving cups; cover. Serve chilled. May be refrigerated overnight.
