  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray an 8-by-8-inch baking dish with butter-flavored cooking spray in a large saucepan.
  2. Combine dry pudding mix, reserved pineapple liquid, and water. Stir in pineapple and mandarin oranges.
  3. Cook over medium heat until mixture thickens and starts to boil, stirring often and being careful not to crush fruit.
  4. Remove from heat. Stir in coconut extract.
  5. Spoon hot mixture into prepared baking dish.
  6. In a medium bowl, combine baking mix, Sugar Twin, pecans, and cinnamon. Add skim milk. Mix gently just to combine.
  7. Drop by spoonfuls onto hot fruit mixture to form 6 mounds. Sprinkle coconut evenly over mounds.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes or until biscuits are done.
  9. Place baking dish on a wire rack and let set for at least 5 minutes. Divide into 6 servings.
  • If you can't find tidbits, use chunk pineapple and coarsely chop.
