Surprise Pull Apart Bread


I made this for the twins’ birthday breakfast this year and it was a huge hit. Cream cheese, cinnamon, pecans, gooey sauce, what could beat that?

Surprise Pull Apart Bread

1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 (1 stick) melted butter
1/3 c maple syrup
1 tube (14 oz) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
1/2 c sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese

Sprinkle pecans into a greased 10-inch bundt cake pan. In a small bowl, mix 2 Tb butter and maple syrup until well blended, pour over pecans in pan. Set aside.

Separate biscuits and cut in half (create a half circle). Then cut in half horizontally (slice through the center to get two half circles) – you should have about 32 pieces. Flatten each cut biscuits a bit with your fingers. Place remaining melted butter in a shallow bowl. In another shallow bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon.

Cut cream cheese into 32 cubes and roll in sugar mixture. Place one cube in center of each piece of dough, and fold up dough around cream cheese to seal tightly. Dip one side of each biscuit in the butter, than in the sugar mixture. Place in bundt pan sugar-side up.

Pour remaining butter over top and sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Invert onto a serving platter and serve warm.
