Cinnamon-Bun Bites

These cinnamon-roll inspired tasty bites would be great for breakfast, but I made them as a surprise treat for my girls after a late evening softball game.  The recipe calls for homemade dough, but since I am keepin' it real here and had ready made biscuits in my fridge, I made it with them instead.  Pre-made bread dough would be an even better substitute because it would rise more, but the bites were still delicious!
