I came up with this cream cheese coffee cake recipe so I could make a delicious brunch treat using convenience pastry for the base. Serving it when it’s cold means that all the cozy filling stays with each slice. —Sherry Little, Sherwood, Arkansas

  • 1 tube (12 ounces) large refrigerated buttery crescent rolls
  • 1 carton (7-1/2 ounces) spreadable brown sugar and cinnamon cream cheese

  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

Drizzle with ice cream topping; sprinkle with pecans. Combine brown sugar and flour; cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle half the mixture over pecans.
  2. On each long side of dough, cut 8 strips at an angle, about 2 in. into the center. Fold 1 strip from each side over filling and pinch ends together; repeat. Brush with beaten egg. Sprinkle with remaining brown sugar mixture.
  3. Bake until deep golden brown, 18-22 minutes. Cool 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Refrigerate until cold.
