Orange-Mascarpone Breakfast Rolls Recipe

These special rolls from Pamela Shank of Parkersburg, West Virginia are melt-in-your-mouth good and smell wonderful while baking. "I came up with these while teaching one of my grandchildren how to make monkey bread," Pamela notes.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:5 servings


  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1-1/2 teaspoons Mascarpone cheese, divided
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • 1 tube (6 ounces) refrigerated flaky buttermilk biscuits
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 teaspoons orange juice


  • 1. Sprinkle pecans into a 6-in. round baking pan coated with cooking spray; set aside. In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. In another bowl, combine 2 tablespoons Mascarpone cheese and orange peel; set aside.
  • 2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out biscuits into 4-in. circles. Spread 1/2 teaspoon cheese mixture down the center of each circle. Bring dough from opposite sides over filling just until edges meet; pinch to seal. Brush with some of the butter; roll in sugar mixture. Place seam side down over pecans. Sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture; drizzle with remaining butter.
  • 3. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately invert onto a serving plate. In a small bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar, orange juice and remaining Mascarpone cheese. Drizzle over rolls. Serve warm. Yield: 5 rolls.

"I made this twice, that's how good they are! The recipe calls for 1/4 cup sugar but this was too much sugar for my taste. I suggest reducing the amount of sugar, but they are delicious!"
