Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 cup Domino or C&H Confectioner Powdered Sugar
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon strong brewed coffee, cooled
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 can (16.3 oz) Pillsbury Grands! Flaky Layers refrigerated
buttermilk biscuits (8 biscuits)
3 to 4 tablespoons LAND O LAKES Unsalted or Salted Butter, melted
1/4 cup Domino or C&H Granulated Sugar
1 jar (12.25 oz) SMUCKER'S Caramel Ice Cream Topping
3/4 cup coarsely chopped Fisher Butter Toffee Peanuts
2 teaspoons coffee-flavored liqueur or cooled strong brewed coffee
1 cup frozen (thawed) whipped topping, if desired


Heat oven to 375F. Generously spray 8 jumbo muffin cups or 8 (6-oz) custard cups with CRISCO Original No-Stick Cooking Spray.

In small bowl, beat powdered sugar, cream cheese, coffee and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed about 1 minute or until smooth and creamy.

Separate dough into 8 biscuits. Press or roll each biscuit into 5-inch round. Brush one side of each round with melted butter. Sprinkle with granulated sugar; press sugar into dough. Press rounds, sugared sides down, evenly in bottom and up sides of muffin cups. Spread about 1 tablespoon cream cheese mixture evenly over dough in bottom of each cup. Drizzle each with 1 tablespoon caramel topping; reserve remaining caramel topping. Top with remaining cream cheese mixture; sprinkle with peanuts. (If using custard cups, place on large cookie sheets with sides.)

Bake 18 to 24 minutes or until edges of biscuit cups are deep

golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. Remove from pan; cool 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, pour remaining caramel topping into small bowl; stir in liqueur. Drizzle over warm biscuit cups. Serve topped with whipped topping. Store covered in refrigerator.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

Thank you so much for posting my recipe! I am so excited about being a finalist in the Pillsbury Bake-Off with this recipe - I came up with the idea because I love pastries and I love coffee! And you can never go wrong with cream cheese!

I love to experiment when I bake - I am always adding in this or that. So sometimes, I have some major disasters on my hand! LOL What I really admire is those of you who have all the decorating skills for cakes, cookies and the like.

Once again, thank you.
