Grizzly Bear Claws

Grizzly Bear Claws

Pillsbury biscuits make quick work of creating sweet pastries. These updated bear claws have a new, must-try flavor twist.


  • 5 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 large orange (1 tablespoon grated peel and 1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons juice)
  • 1/3 cup coconut
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds, coarsely chopped
  • 2/3 cup finely chopped pitted dates
  • 1/4 cup Jif® Creamy Almond Butter
  • 1 can Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Homestyle refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (5 biscuits)


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Line large cookie sheet with Reynolds® Parchment Paper.
  2. In small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of the powdered sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoons of the orange juice with whisk until smooth; set aside.
  3. In another small bowl, mix coconut and almonds; set aside.
  4. In medium bowl, mix dates and 1 tablespoon of the orange juice. Stir in almond butter, orange peel and remaining 3 tablespoons powdered sugar. Set aside.
  5. Separate dough into 5 biscuits; press each biscuit to form 7 x 3 1/2-inch oval. Spoon about 2 tablespoons date filling on one half of each biscuit oval. Spread filling to center, 1 inch from short end and 1/4 inch from sides. Fold dough in half over filling; bringing top edge of dough even with bottom edge. Press edges firmly to seal.
  6. Place biscuits 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Using sharp knife or kitchen scissors, make four 1-inch cuts, 1 inch apart on sealed end of biscuit. Gently stretch each section between cuts to form claw shape. Brush tops of biscuits with reserved orange glaze; sprinkle evenly with reserved coconut mixture.
  7. Bake for 10 to 20 minutes or until golden brown and coconut is toasted.
  8. Cool for 2 minutes; remove from pan to cooling rack.
  9. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
