Orange Cream Cheese Filled Pull Apart Rolls

3/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. pecans (opt.)
2 tsp. orange zest
2 cans Pillsbury buttermilk biscuits
1 8 oz cream cheese
1/2 c. melted butter
1 c. powdered sugar
2 Tbs. orange juice

Combine the sugar and zest in a small bowl and set aside. Cut cream cheese into equal number of squares as biscuits. Place one square on cream cheese into the center of biscuit and fold over into a half moon shape and pinch the edges. Dip in melted butter and dredge in sugar/zest mixture. Place in a greased bundt pan with the curve side down in a single layer, do not stack and try not to have any gaps. Drizzle with remaining butter and sugar mixture. Bake 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Invert onto a platter. Mix together powdered sugar and orange juice and drizzle over hot rolls. Serve warm.
