Moist, sticky and filled with rich maple flavor, this treat tastes as delicious as it looks. The gooey cream cheese inside is sure to get mouths watering. —Doreen Wright-Laukaitis, Oxford, Massachusetts


  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted, divided
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tubes (6 ounces each) refrigerated flaky buttermilk biscuits
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese


  1. Sprinkle pecans into a greased 10-in. fluted tube pan. In a small bowl, combine 2 tablespoons butter and maple syrup; pour over pecans. Set aside.
  2. Separate biscuits; split each in half horizontally. Place remaining butter in a shallow bowl. In another shallow bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon.
  3. Cut cream cheese into 20 cubes; roll in sugar mixture. Place one cube in the center of each piece of dough. Fold dough over cheese cube; pinch edges to seal tightly. Dip one side of each biscuit in butter, then sugar mixture.
  4. Arrange biscuits in prepared pan, sugar side up. Pour remaining butter over top; sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture. Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately invert onto a serving platter. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers.
