“I have had this recipe in my box since I got married 6 years ago...I jotted it down whether it was tv or internet I'm not sure! But it's so quick and tasty I don't want to lose it! I'm putting it here for safe keeping and I hope you enjoy it!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spray a bundt or loaf pan with non stick spray and pre heat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a small bowl mix together white sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. In a small saucepan melt butter and brown sugar stirring until brown sugar is dissolved. Set aside.
  4. Cut cream cheese into 20 cubes.
  5. Using your fingers press out each biscuit to roughly 1/4 to 1/2 inch think. Place one cream cheese cube and a sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar in each.
  6. Wrap it up into a ball and place into your greased pan. When you do your first 10 drizzle half the brown sugar and butter mixture over them spread your nuts around this layer as well. Finish your last 10 then cover with remaining sauce and you could save half your nuts to put on top here, but when you turn it over onto the plate I hate to have them on the bottom!
  7. Bake for 30 minutes. Cool and turn over onto a plate.
