In a large gallon sized bag, combine granulated sugar and cinnamon. After those are combined, add the biscuit quarters. Close the bag and shake well to make sure the biscuit quarters are coated evenly in the cinnamon/sugar mixture.

Next, place the cinnamon coated biscuits evenly in the greased bundt pan.
