February 18, 2008

From the Better Homes and Gardens Anyone Can Cook recipe book. These sound so good, perfect for an after-church snack. Can’t wait to try them!

1/2 of a 34.5 oz package frozen cinnamon sweet roll dough or frozen orange sweet roll dough (6 rolls)
1/3 c chopped pecans
1/4 c butter or margarine, melted
1/2 c sugar
1/4 c caramel-flavored ice cream topping
1 T maple-flavored syrup

Place frozen rolls about 2 inches apart on a large greased baking sheet. (Discard frosting packets or reserve for another use.) Cover rolls with plastic wrap. Refrigerate overnight to let dough thaw and begin to rise.
Preheat ovento 350 F. Generously grease twelve 2 1/2 in muffin cups. Divide pecans evenly among muffin cups; set aside.
Cut each roll into four pieces. Dip each roll piece in melted butter, then roll in sugar. Place two dough pieces into each prepared muffin cup. Drizzle rolls with any remaining melted butter; sprinkle with any remaining sugar. In a small bowl stir together ice cream topping and syrup; drizzle over rolls.
Bake in the preheated oven about 20 minutes or until rolls are golden brown. Cool in muffin cups on a wire rack for 1 minute. Invert onto a large platter. Cool slightly. Serve warm. Makes 12 rolls.
