  • Layer the dough in the pan.
  • Top with another thin layer of the butter mixture on top. Then top with the remaining pecans.
  • Open the second can of biscuits & repeat the same steps: cut into quarters, cover in cinnamon sugar, then layer into the pan.
  • Spread the remaining butter mixture on top of the biscuits.
  • Bake about 32 -35 minutes until golden brown.

NIKKI’S NOTES

Tip #1: Pillsbury has a lot of flavor options! I tend to always pick “Southern Style” and “Homestyle Buttermilk.”

Tip #2: Be careful of nut allergies should you or someone enjoying this Cinnamon Pecan Bread be allergic to Pecans.

Tip #3: Leftovers are great! Warm them up in the microwave for 20-30 seconds!

We’re so excited to be collaborating with Nikki as she continues to create some healthy recipes, some not so healthy,  all no doubt incredibly delicious, recipes that pair well with coffee.  For the Pecan bread we recommend enjoying with a cup of our Costa Rican coffee.
