Ingredients

2 tablespoons butter, melted, plus more for pan

1 (16.3-ounce) can refrigerated biscuits (recommended: Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers)

1/4 cup minced walnuts

1/3 cup granulated sugar

2 teaspoons orange zest

Glaze:

1/2 cup confectioners' sugar

2 ounces cream cheese, softened

2 tablespoons orange juice, or more as necessary

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 9-inch round cake pan.
  2. Separate the biscuit dough into 8 biscuits. Place 1 biscuit in the center of the pan. Cut the remaining biscuits in half, forming 14 half-circles. Arrange the pieces around the center biscuit with cut sides facing in the same direction. Brush melted butter over the tops of the biscuits.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the walnuts, granulated sugar, and orange zest. Mix well and sprinkle over biscuits. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine confectioners' sugar, cream cheese, and orange juice. Blend until smooth adding more orange juice, if needed, to thin. Drizzle glaze over the warm coffee cake and serve.
