Author: The Southern Lady Cooks


  • 1 16.3 ounce Grands Butter Pillsbury Biscuits
  • 2-3 ounces of cream cheese 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of butter - melted
  • 1/2 cup of chopped pecans
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • Powdered Glaze
  • 1 cup white powdered sugar
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons milk I use 2%
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract optional


  • Preheat oven to 350. Spray a cast iron skillet with cooking spray.  Separate each biscuit to make two biscuits from one. Then pat then down to make them a little more flat. Cut an inch size piece of the cream cheese and put in the biscuit, then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and roll into a ball. Repeat this with each biscuit and put them into your cast iron skillet.
  • Once all your biscuits are rolled into balls and in the skillet, in a separate bowl combine melted butter, brown sugar and pecans and stir together. Pour over the biscuits in the skillet. If you have any leftover cinnamon and sugar you can also sprinkle that on top too.
  • Cook for 28-35 minutes or until biscuits are done. I tested my biscuits with a knife and they were done around 28 minutes.
  • Powdered Glaze Instructions
  • Put sugar in a bowl and whisk in milk and vanilla extract until mixture is smooth.  You can add more or less milk or sugar to get the consistency you want.

Anyone can make this simple recipe. It’s wonderful for any gathering with friends and family. This is definitely a beginner friendly recipe!

  6. When you say make two biscuits from one do you mean cut in half and have 2 semi circles or pull it apart and have two thinner round biscuits?

    • The Southern Lady says:

      You can do either, if they don’t separate well cut them, you may have to roll them out a little to have enough size to put the cream cheese in.

  7. I wish I had an Iron skillet~ Can these be made without one? Would love to make them 🙂 Thankyou!

  8. I will have to try this. Looks amazing and (my favorite part) easy!
