    Heat oven to 375°F. Place paper baking cup in each of 12 regular-size muffin cups; spray with cooking spray.

Remove skillet from heat; carefully pour in whiskey, return skillet to heat and cook 1 to 2 minutes or until liquid evaporates. Pour over cinnamon roll pieces, and toss to coat. Divide mixture among muffin cups.
