Bread Pudding

  • 1 (16.3 ounce) can Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Flaky Layers refrigerated Buttermilk biscuits
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk or half-and-half
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Glaze and Decorations

  • 2 cups cream cheese frosting (from two 1-pound cans)
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon, if desired
  • Yellow, purple and green sanding sugar, coarse sparkling sugar or candy sprinkles


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 13 x 9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Bread Pudding: Bake biscuits as directed on can. Cool.
  3. Meanwhile, in very large bowl, beat eggs slightly. Add milk and sugar; beat well. Stir in pecans, raisins and cinnamon.
  4. Cut each cooled biscuit into 6 (1-inch) pieces. Add biscuit pieces to egg mixture; gently stir to mix and coat well. Let stand for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, so biscuit pieces soak up egg mixture. Pour mixture into baking dish; press down slightly to even top.
  5. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until knife inserted into egg mixture comes out clean.
  6. Remove from oven; cool slightly, about 5 minutes.
  7. Glaze and Decorations: In small bowl, mix frosting and bourbon until well combined. Spread Glaze evenly over Bread Pudding.
  8. Sprinkle sanding sugar over top to make it pretty!
