Paula's Pineapple Upside Down Biscuits

I was browsing around Paula Deen's web site, just looking through her recipes for something new and fun, and I happened to find these little beauties. Now, I know I say every recipe is simple to make but seriously, these are INSANELY simple and you won't even believe how delicious they are! They'd be perfect for the novice cook because you only have a few ingredients, barely anything to measure and they're in and out of the oven in no time. I challenge you to eat just one! They're THAT good!
You MUST try them!

1 (10-ounce) can crushed pineapple
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, at room temperature
10 maraschino cherries
1 (12-ounce) package refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (10 count)

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Grease 10 cups of a muffin tin. Strain the can of crushed pineapple, save juice for later.
Combine the pineapple, sugar, and butter, and mix well. Divide the pineapple mixture among the muffin cups. Place a cherry in the center of each muffin cup, making sure cherry hits bottom of cup. Place 1 biscuit in each cup on top of sugar and pineapple mixture. Spoon 1 teaspoon reserved pineapple juice over each biscuit. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden. Cool for 2 minutes. Invert the pan onto a plate to release the biscuits. Serve warm.

I'm thinking you should probably make a double batch. I'm not sayin', I'm just sayin'!
