  2. Sprinkle brown sugar over butter. Arrange pineapple slices in dish. Fill centers of pineapple with cherries and spaces between with coconut and nuts. Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until pineapple is hot.

  3. Separate dough into 8 biscuits. Top each pineapple slice with 1 biscuit. Brush tops of biscuits with reserved pineapple juice. Sprinkle with granulated sugar.

  4. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until biscuits are deep golden brown and no longer doughy in center. Immediately place heatproof serving platter upside down over baking dish; turn platter and dish over. Remove baking dish. Spread any topping remaining in dish over biscuits. Cool 15 minutes before serving.
