Easy Pecan Cinnamon Roll Biscuits

I am not normally a sweet-stuff-for-breakfast kinda girl.  You may have seen the salad I ate for breakfast last week on Instagram. Really. Give me a slice of whole grain toast with hummus, sliced tomatoes and avocado and call it done.


These sweet, fluffy, cinnamon sugar stuffed, pecan topped biscuits have changed my mind.  It may be a breakfast revolution.

Easy Pecan Cinnamon Roll Biscuits

Easy pecan cinnamon roll biscuits - these start with refrigerated biscuits!

These start with refrigerated biscuits.  See!  I told you they were easy!  So all you need to do is preheat your oven, whip up the cinnamon roll filling mixture, layer and bake.  Oh.  And wait.  That’s probably the hardest part of this recipe.  Because your house will smell AMAZING!  And when these come out of the oven – piping hot – it is almost torture to wait for them to be cool enough to eat without burning the top layer off of your tongue.  Even, Chris, Mr. Anti-Breakfast himself, indulged in not one, but two of these!

You see, not only are these cinnamon roll biscuits topped with the rich, cinnamon sugar mixture.  But tucked inside those lovely biscuits is another pocket of cinnamon sugar goodness that gets warm and bubbly as these bake.  Does it get better than that?

Cinnamon roll biscuits - stuffed AND topped with cinnamon sugar mixture!
Okay, let’s wipe off the drool and get baking.

Easy Pecan Cinnamon Roll Biscuits


  • 2 cans - 8 count Pillsbury Grands flaky butter biscuits
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cups chopped pecans


  1. Preheat oven to 375* and prepare a large baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Depending on the size of your baking pans, you may need to use two.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the butter, sugars, flour and cinnamon.
  4. Separate each biscuit in half and spread about 1 tablespoon of the cinnamon sugar mixture in between the layers.
  5. Repeat with each biscuit and place side by side in baking dish.
  6. Spread the tops of the biscuits with the remaining cinnamon sugar mixture and sprinkle with pecans.
  7. Bake for 12 - 14 minutes, until the biscuits are golden brown.

You can halve this recipe, but I’ll just stop the madness right there because 8 of these will not be enough.  Unless there is only one of you.  And then I bet you’ll have to make another batch.  This is an easy recipe to make for a brunch menu or a holiday breakfast – Easter is right around the corner!  Or Wednesday.  Let’s celebrate Wednesday with another pan of these easy pecan cinnamon roll biscuits!!
