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 for the majority of the time. Sometimes, I simply see a photo and it inspires a recipe. Which, is what happened with this recipe.

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 the 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.

    Oh my gosh…my mouth started watering as I read this recipe. Can’t wait to try it this weekend! I do have one question…are we supposed to separate the crescent rolls dough and roll them up like we would normally…and fill the pie pan with them? That’s a lot of question for one sentence lol.

    1. Yes, unroll the crescent rolls, fill, roll up, place in pan. Bake. Eat. 😁 I see I didn’t make that real clear in the directions.

  5. Question, is this best eaten on the day it is made? Or can it be made a day ahead and will still be good?
    Thank you

    I am going to try this recipe. I am from Texas and we called this cake just a pecan cake at that time. It sure looks good.

  7. This looks amazing but I do have a question. The ingredient list for the filling says 1 cup chopped pecans and the instructions says 2 cups chopped pecans….which one is correct? Thanks
