Ingredients

Biscuit

  • 1/2 cup flaked or shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 can (16.3 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Southern Homestyle Buttermilk Biscuits (8 Count)
  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted

Filling

  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine

  • 4 medium bananas, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon light rum (or 1/2 teaspoon rum extract and 2 1/2 teaspoons water)

Whipped Topping

  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. In small bowl, mix coconut and granulated sugar.

    Dip tops and sides of biscuits into melted butter, then into coconut mixture. On ungreased large cookie sheet, place biscuits, coconut sides up, 2 inches apart. Sprinkle any remaining coconut mixture over tops of biscuits.
  • 3
    Bake 14 to 18 minutes or until biscuits and coconut are light golden brown. Cool 5 minutes.

    Meanwhile, in 10-inch skillet, melt 1/4 cup butter over medium-high heat; stir in 1/2 cup brown sugar. Cook until brown sugar is dissolved, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; fold in bananas and rum.
  • 5
    In medium bowl, beat whipped topping ingredients with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form.
  • 6
    To serve, split warm biscuits. Fill and top with filling and whipped topping.

  • Add some crunch to the shortcake by sprinkling the whipped topping with toasted pecans.
  • Add an extra 1 tablespoon rum to bananas for more flavor.
