Glazed Quick Pecan Pie Crescent Roll Coffee Cake makes a delicious and easy breakfast. Buttery crescent rolls are filled with a pecan pie filling, smothered with a sweet batter, and baked to perfection.
It’s safe to say that I pretty much think about food and creating new recipes the majority of the time. Sometimes, I simply see a photo and it inspires a recipe. Which, is what happened with this Glazed Quick Pecan Pie Crescent Roll Coffee Cake.
Crescent rolls make an easy shortcut to all kinds of recipes. Don’t be embarrassed to use them because you feel the recipe isn’t quite ‘homemade’ when you do. I enjoy finding products and ingredients that save me time.
I have used crescent rolls and other recipes that I’ve shared with you like these Bacon Cheese Crescent Rolls. My boys love Chocolate Chip Crescent Roll Monkey Bread for breakfast and by making them in ramekins it saves cooking time on busy weekday mornings. We also enjoy beignets, but I don’t have time in the mornings to wait for a dough to rise. Crescent Roll Beignets are fast and scrumptious! Finally, did you know you can make monkey bread in the slow cooker? I made this Slow Cooker Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread and it was so good I didn’t want to stop eating it.
I love the flavors of pecan pie and the Pecan Cobbler is one of my most popular recipes on Call Me PMc.
