Tear some dough out of the pre-prepared biscuit package, roll it into a ball and secure it to your campfire roasting stick or camping skewer. Cook this dough over a bed of hot coals, rotating until it's a nice, golden-brown color.

Step 2: Butter

Rub butter onto your cooked biscuit ball. Doing so will help the cinnamon-sugar mix stick to the dessert and add some extra flavor.
