MASCARPONE FILLED BREAKFAST ROLLS FOR 2

Jump to recipe
A delicious, easy brunch recipe. Refrigerated biscuits stuffed with mascarpone cheese, rolled in butter-cinnamon-sugar. Sprinkled with cranberries and nuts. Drizzled with a rich icing. In 2008 I was chosen as a finalist for the 43rd Pillsbury Bake-off Contest.  I cannot even express how exciting this was and what an unforgettable experience.

My recipe was Mascarpone-Filled Cranberry Walnut Rolls.

I was chosen as the winner of my category (Breakfast/Brunch)  and one of the 5 finalists to win the $1,000,000 dollars!  I did not win that but did receive $5000 and a new stove.

The original recipe for mascarpone filled rolls makes 10 rolls which is too many if there are only 2 people sharing it.  I decided last week to make a downsized version of this.

Pillsbury sells refrigerated biscuits in a 5 count can, so this is perfect.  breakfast rolls
