Cinnamon Pull Apart Bread = Yummy!

I've been wanting to make this for a long time and decided it would be nice to try today since I have cream cheese in our fridge. I made a few changes, first off I halved this also. I didn't have icing sugar so I blended up some white sugar until it was a powder. Hopefully it tastes the same. I will post a picture soon. I think next time I would like to make the biscuits from scratch. The ones, Pillsbury, that I have seem to have little white bits in them and I have no idea what that is!! Also I didn't have the pan recommended so I used a 8" round cake pan. The bread is just one layer but that's fine, I didn't want to make too much because I know this is high in calories!

2 cans (340 g each) refrigerated country biscuits
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 Tbsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 cup butter, melted

125 g (1/2 of 250-g pkg.) Philadelphia Brick Cream Cheese, softened (I used the one in a tub instead of the brick kind)
1/2 cup icing sugar (or 1/2 cup white sugar blended to a powder)
1 Tbsp. milk (I used 1 tsp of vanilla instead)
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Cut each biscuit into quarters.
Mix granulated sugar and cinnamon in medium bowl. Add biscuit pieces, in batches; toss to coat.
Place half the biscuit pieces in greased 3-L fluted tube pan or 10-inch tube pan; drizzle with half the butter. Repeat. Sprinkle with any remaining cinnamon sugar. Bake 40 to 45 min. or until toothpick inserted near centre comes out clean and top is golden brown. Cool in pan 5 min; invert onto plate. Remove pan.
Beat remaining ingredients with mixer until well blended; drizzle over warm bread.

This is VERY tasty! Kind of like cinnamon roll meets tea biscuit! I'm impressed with my icing too!
