Rum-Glazed Coffee Rolls

Yield 20 rolls
Don't worry about how you arrange these sugar-coated biscuits in the pan--during baking they expand into a coffee cake that separates easily into single rolls.


  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup brewed coffee
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 2 tablespoons dark rum
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons instant coffee granules
  • 2 (11-ounce) cans refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
  • 1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted

How to Make It

  1. Sprinkle pecans in a heavily greased 12-cup Bundt pan. Combine brown sugar and next 3 ingredients, stirring well. Pour mixture into pan.

  2. Combine 2/3 cup sugar and coffee granules in a shallow bowl; stir well. Separate biscuits; dip biscuits in 1/3 cup melted butter, and dredge in sugar mixture. Stand biscuits on edge around pan, placing 12 on outer side and 8 on inner side of pan.

  3. Bake at 350° for 28 minutes. Cool in pan on a wire rack 5 minutes. Invert onto a serving platter, and serve immediately.
