Honey Orange Pecan Mini Rolls

Ever wake up craving cinnamon rolls? I do. All the time. While homemade cinnamon rolls can be quite time consuming, today I’m sharing a super quick alternative. Refrigerated crescent dough! Inspired by these nutty honey mini rolls, I added pecans and orange zest to make them into a version of my favorite cinnamon rolls.

These bite-sized mini rolls are great for an anytime snack or perfect for parties. Best of all, it only takes 10 minutes to bake. From start to finish, in less than half an hour, you can enjoy fresh from the oven honey orange pecan mini rolls!

Honey Orange Pecan Mini Rolls

Simply roll out the refrigerated crescent dough into a large rectangle. Spread on the filling mixture made of softened butter, honey, cinnamon, and finely chopped toasted pecans. Roll up the dough and slice them into 24 portions. Gently transfer slices to a mini muffin tin.

After slicing the dough, the rolls will look a little wonky like the ones photographed above. Do not worry. As they bake in the oven, the rolls will spread out to the diameter of the muffin tin.

These mini rolls are packed with a ton of flavor and they’re ideally portioned to keep your summer beach body in check!

This is the link for the original NUTTY HONEY MINI ROLLS.

HERE ARE THE CHANGES I MADE TO THE ORIGINAL RECIPE:

  • Add 1 tsp orange zest to the filling
  • Add 1/2 tsp orange zest to Honey Icing recipe

Breakfast may be the most important meal of the day, but more than often, we just don’t have the time to prepare anything warm and filling. These savory ham and cheese breakfast tarts make breakfast time a breeze. Inspired by these jam filled breakfast tarts, you can prepare these hand tarts ahead of time. They can be kept frozen or chilled in the refrigerator. When you’re ready, simply reheat it in a toaster oven or microwave. Best of all, these breakfast tarts also taste great at room temperature.

The tart dough is a straight forward butter based crust. It’s simple to whip together and the dough does not need a lot of chilling/resting time before use. The dough is very sturdy and easy to work with. This recipe makes 6 hand tarts. You can easily double or triple the recipe to fit your needs.

I filled the dough with cheddar cheese and a slice of deli ham. There are so many combinations you can use: mozzarella and pepperoni, Swiss and turkey, etc.

Cover the filling with another piece of dough. Seal the edges of the tart with a fork. Brush the dough with a little milk and top it with additional cheese. It takes about 20-25 minutes for these to bake. You can enjoy them immediately, or pack them up for later use. According to the Better Homes and Gardens Test Kitchen, you can freeze these tarts for up to 2 months. Use an oven or toaster oven to reheat.

This is the original BREAKFAST TART RECIPE.

I followed the recipe for the dough as instructed in the link above.

The only changes I made:

  • Instead of 6 tablespoons strawberry jelly, I used 6 slices of deli ham and 6 slices of cheddar cheese.
  • Omit vanilla icing recipe, instead top tarts with cheddar cheese.

Overnight Berry Coffee Cake

There is nothing better than waking to the sweet aroma of cake baking in the oven. Imagine having a nice warm treat to go alongside your morning cup of coffee. With this overnight berry coffee cake, you can make perfect mornings a reality.

This was my first foray into overnight coffee cakes and now I’m addicted. I can’t wait to try out different flavor combinations. This berry coffee cake is an adaptation of this overnight cranberry coffee cake. Since we’re in the midst of berry season, I swapped in a mixture of fresh berries instead of the cranberries which I normally associate with Thanksgiving.

Overnight Berry Coffee Cake

I love baked goods that can be prepared in advance. You can make the batter and crumble topping the night before. Then first thing in the morning, just pop it in the oven. In no time, the kitchen will smell like a delicious bakery. No candles or potpourri necessary. Baking is life’s natural air freshener.

The batter for this coffee cake is quite thick. Don’t be alarmed. The thick better helps to hold and distribute the fruits within the cake. Use an offset spatula or the back of a spoon to level over the batter. (Can you see the little speckles of orange zest? The citrus really helps the flavors of this coffee cake pop!)

Overnight Berry Coffee Cake

Before baking, sprinkle the crumble topping and additional fresh berries over the batter. This recipe uses sliced almonds, but you can swap in whatever nuts you’re craving. Pistachios would be lovely with the berries and orange zest. You can even add some cacao nibs for extra crunch.

Overnight Berry Coffee Cake

Mixing this coffee cake is the easy part. It’s waiting for it cool from the oven that’s the most difficult part. It’s very important to let the coffee cake cool for about 20 minutes after baking. This will help the cake keep its structure. Once it’s had some time to rest, start slicing and enjoy this berry coffee cake warm! It’s great with a cup of coffee, some warm tea, or a tall glass of milk!

Overnight Berry Coffee Cake

Here are my changes to the original OVERNIGHT CRANBERRY COFFEE CAKE:

  • Instead of 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg, use 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Instead of 1 3/4 cup chopped fresh cranberries, use 2 cups of mixed fresh berries (strawberry, blueberry, blackberry, raspberry)
  • Instead of 1/4 cup orange juice, use 1/4 cup milk
  • Omit 1 Tablespoon finely shredded lemon peel
