Did you know that a can of biscuits can be a beautiful thing? Why limit your creativity to just baking them plain? Their buttery ingredients lends well to creating all kinds of yummy creations–especially recipes on the sweet side. So come along for the ride and see exactly how these delicious treats are created.

This is the BEST easy biscuit, and here it why:

  • This recipe uses refrigerated biscuits, since I have really concentrated on the toppings for this recipe.
  • The praline pecan pie topping really adds another dimension to the biscuits.
  • This easy recipe can be served for breakfast, brunch, dessert or a snack.

To make this recipe, you will need:

  • biscuits – Grands or another large variety
  • dark corn syrup – light corn syrup would work in a pinch
  • egg
  • butter – this goes in the recipe and also is applied to the baking dish along with cooking spray to assist with removal
  • vanilla
  • sugar
  • pecans – I like chopped
  • salt – adds kind of a salted caramel taste
  • baking spray

Optional Add-In

Chocolate Chips – For a chocolate version, sprinkle 3/4 cup chocolate chips into the pan before adding the biscuits.

The three most important things about this recipe:

  1. Be sure to use the butter and cooking spray in the pan before adding the ingredients in order for the biscuits to release.
  2. It is best if your serving tray is just a few inches larger than your baking pan. That way, you can get your hands around them both when it is time to flip.
  3. Tempering the eggs is not difficult, but is a necessary step or you might scramble the eggs. If you are unfamiliar with this technique, see my link below regarding tempering eggs.

  • 1 large can refrigerated large biscuits
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup dark corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans
Baking Dish Preparation
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • cooking spray
  1. To a medium pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the sugar until bubbly. Stir in the dark corn syrup until bubbly. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla and salt. Cool for 5 minutes.

  2. Temper the beaten egg into the praline mixture by adding a spoonful of the mixture into the egg and mixing. Then add a spoonful of the egg mixture into the praline mixture. Continue doing this gradually until the egg has been incorporated. Add in the pecans and mix well.

  3. Prepare an oblong 6 x 10 inch baking dish by first spreading the 1 tablespoon of butter over the bottom and sides of the baking dish, then spray well with cooking spray.

  4. Pour in the praline mixture and spread out evenly. Lay the biscuits on top of the mixture.

  5. Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 30 minutes.

  6. When removed from the oven, immediately invert onto a serving tray that is slightly larger than the baking dish. You may need to tap it a few times to get the biscuits to release. Serve warm.
