Heat oven to 350F.
Mix white sugar and cinnamon in a large ziplock bag. Separate the biscuit dough and cut each biscuit into quarters. Arrange all the biscuits around the tube pan. If you are using nuts and cherries, put them in here and there among the dough as you go along.
Put the butter and brown sugar in a medium bowl in the microwave. Melt it until the sugar is well dissolved - about 1-2 mins depending on microwave.
Drizzle the butter over the biscuits. Bake for 35 mins. Let cool for 10-15 mins in the pan and then turn out onto a plate. No need to cut it ~ this is a fun dessert to pull apart with friends over coffee!
