Recipe Card


  • 3 cans Immaculate Baking Organic Crescent Rolls
  • 1 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup salted butter
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped pecans


  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 350° F. Heavily grease a 9-inch bundt pan and set aside.

  • Step 2

    Add cream cheese, vanilla extract, and powdered sugar to a mixing bowl. Combine until smooth. Set aside.

  • Step 3

    Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Set aside.

  • Step 4

    Open the Immaculate Baking Organic Crescent Rolls cans and roll out the dough on a large cutting board. Squeeze the perforated lines together. Cut each large rectangle of dough into 24 even squares. [Note: The dough is already separated into 4 smaller rectangles with the perforated lines, which you will cut into 6 small squares, with the 3 cans this will make 72 small squares in total.]

  • Step 5

    Stretch out the small squares with your fingers. Add about ½ teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture to the center of each of the squares.

  • Step 6

    Fold in the corners of each square and roll the dough around the cream cheese stuffing into balls. Once rolled, place the dough balls in a large mixing bowl.

  • Step 7

    Pour the cinnamon sugar mixture over the dough balls. Combine carefully with your hands or a large spoon until all balls are thoroughly coated.

  • Step 8

    Add the butter and light brown sugar to a pan on the stove over medium heat. Bring to a simmer for 1-2 minutes.

  • Step 9

    Add a small amount of butter and brown sugar mixture to the bottom of the prepared bundt pan, just enough to cover it.

  • Step 10

    Add a sprinkle of pecans to the pan then about half of the dough balls. Then add another layer of pecans and dough balls. Sprinkle any remaining cinnamon sugar coating on top.

  • Step 11

    Pour remaining butter and brown sugar mixture on top of the dough balls. Spread as evenly as possible. Bake for 60 minutes.

  • Step 12

    Remove from the oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes before flipping carefully out of the bundt pan and serving.
