This is a yummy,casual dessert and an easy one for the kids to help make.

1 (10-ounce) can crushed pineapple
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, at room temp.
10 maraschino cherries
1(12-ounce) package refrigerated biscuits (10 count)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F

Grease 10 cups of a muffin tin. Strain the crushed pineapple, save the juice for later. Combine the pineapple, sugar, and butter and mix well. Divide the pineapple mixture among the muffin cups. Place a cherry ( if you wish and have them on hand) in the center of each muffin cup, making sure the cherry hits the bottom of the cup. Place a biscuit in each cup on top of pineapple mixture. Spoon 1 teaspoon reserved pineapple juice over each biscuit. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Cool for 2 minutes. Invert the pan onto a plate or lift biscuits out and spoon out any pineapple mixture that is in bottom of muffin cup. Serve warm. Yummy comfort food!
