Pecan Cream Cheese Rolls

As much as we love cinnamon rolls for a breakfast treat, sometimes you just need to shake things up. And the perfect way to do that is with these Pecan Cream Cheese Rolls! Each roll is stuffed with rich cream cheese and a brown sugar pecan mixture, then baked in a buttery sauce to absolute perfection. It’s an easy recipe to whip up and you can have them on the breakfast table in less than 45 minutes. A morning treat that everyone will love.

We’ve opted for a 8×8 size dish in this recipe and one tube of crescent roll dough which will give you 8 rolls. If you’re feeding a bigger crowd for the holidays or family gathering, it’s an easy recipe to double and bake up in a 9×13 instead. These definitely make for a delicious Christmas morning treat. Keep in mind that they’re delicious so many people will want to go back for seconds. Can’t blame them for that!

8oz refrigerated crescent roll dough
1 cup pecan pieces
½ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter
4 oz cream cheese, chilled
6 tablespoons butter, melted
½ cup cream soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and thoroughly grease a 8×8 baking dish.
In a small bowl, mix together the pecan pieces, brown sugar, cinnamon, and 2 tablespoons melted butter.
Chop cream cheese into 8 squares.
Open crescent dough and separate into triangles.
Place a cube of cream cheese and spoonful of the pecan mixture at the wide end of the dough triangle then roll up and seal.
Once dough is secure, place in the baking dish. Repeat with the rest of the dough.
Pour the remaining 6 tablespoons of melted butter over the rolls and sprinkle the remaining brown sugar pecan mixture over the top.
Pour the cream soda around the rolls.
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the dough is just browning on top. Serve warm.
