Servings 4 servings


  • 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.

  1. Made this today for church and brought home an empty pan. I doubled the recipe and it turned out great. I decided to mix the 1/2 cup brown sugar and cinnamon into the cream cheese before placing in the biscuits. Next time I plan to use pumpkin spice. Definitely a keeper. Thank you for sharing.5 stars

  6. Can I use regular grands biscuits

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Yes, they will work fine.

  7. What size skillet? Should the rolls be touching?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Yes the rolls should be touching. You can make this in any size, they just have to rise together. I used a 10 inch skillet.

  9. Missy Young says:

    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?

    1. 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.

  10. Elizabeth says:

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

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Absolutely, you can use a glass dish or cake pan. Anything that will work in the oven will be fine.

  11. Gina Rampy says:

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

  12. What are the yellow pieces in the biscuits? It looks like yellow pepper?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      It’s pieces of butter.. they are Pilsbury Grands Butter biscuits.

  13. Recipes look delicious! I’ll definitely try a few.
