Special equipment: a 24-cup mini-muffin pan fitted with mini cupcake liners or twelve 3-inch mini cast-iron pans
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Place 24 mini cupcake liners in the cups of a mini-muffin pan. (Alternatively, use twelve 3-inch mini cast-iron pans.) With kitchen shears, cut each biscuit into 8 pieces. In a small bowl, combine the melted butter and maple syrup. In a separate bowl, mix together the sugar, pecans and cinnamon. Dip each biscuit piece in the maple-butter, and then roll it in the sugar mixture. Place 3 to 4 coated pieces in each muffin cup (or 5 to 6 pieces in each cast-iron pan), pressing to compact.
Bake the muffins until browned, 15 to 17 minutes. Allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before removing to wire racks. Serve warm.
