Preheat oven to 350. Prepare a 9-inch cake pan by lightly greasing with cooking spray and placing 1/4 cup of butter (half of a stick) in it. Put this in the oven while it preheats just until butter is melted.
1/2 cup butter
Remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle the brown sugar over the melted butter. Sprinkle pecan pieces on top of that. Set aside.
1 cup brown sugar, 1 cup pecans
In a small bowl, stir together the cinnamon and white sugar. Set aside. Cut cold cream cheese into 24 small cubes and set aside.
1 cup white sugar, 1 tablespoon cinnamon, 8 ounces cream cheese
Divide each biscuit into two layers. Place a cube of cream cheese in the center of each layer and fold biscuit dough around it, pressing to seal the cream cheese in. Roll each cream cheese-filled dough ball in the cinnamon sugar mixture and place close together on top of pecans in the cake pan. Repeat until pan is full.
