Chubby-Sweet-Cinnamon Rolls

Looking for that special Sunday or holiday breakfast treat?  Look no further.  This is a sweet, easy, doctored up cinnamon roll dish that I first discovered from my lovely cousin who discovered it from the famous, Paula Dean.  I make it on Christmas morning for our family and more than often for J.O and I just because it’s that good.  I just changed it up a bit to fit our preferences.  You can easily double this recipe to make for a larger family or group.  I will warn you…it is amazing, you will want more and it is not on a typical “healthy diet” plan…but everyone needs a cheat day :)

You will need:

  • 1 can of pre-made refrigerated cinnamon rolls that include the icing.
  • 2-3 tablespoons of cinnamon sugar
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Cream cheese cut into dice sized pieces (one for each roll)
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts of your choice (walnuts, pecans or cashews)
  1. -Spray a round cake pan (or bunt cake if doubling the recipe) with cooking spray.
  2. -In a Saucepan melt the butter and brown sugar over low heat, stir well and set aside
  3. -Separate the biscuits and place one cube of cream cheese in the center of each.  Then using your fingers pinch the biscuits so they close around the cream cheese.
  4. -Spread the chopped nuts in the pan. Then lay arrange the biscuits so that they are evenly distributed in the pan.  *Sprinkle your cinnamon sugar on top and coat with your butter/brown sugar mixture. If you are doubling the recipe you will layer the sequence. 
  5. -Bake at 375 for 17-20 min. *If doubling bake for 30-35 min
  6. -Invert the pan onto a plate and knock out buns.  Drizzle with the pre packaged icing.
  7. -Devour.
