Easy Pecan Rolls and My 1st Giveaway!

One of my main goals this past weekend was to get in the kitchen and bake something. I haven't done a lot of baking lately and was starting to miss it; it's sort of my own therapy, I instantly feel better once I get started. Now this hardly classifies as baking but I decided to treat my family to these delicious pull apart rolls yesterday for breakfast.

They are so easy, it simply requires you dumping the ingredients in the pan before you go to bed at night and the next morning you have these wonderful rolls ready to bake in the oven!  I'm sure everyone has their own version of this recipe, mine comes from my parents. These are a favorite when I host Easter brunch at my house. I like to use butterscotch pudding mix to add that extra caramel flavor but you certainly can omit it and use more brown sugar instead.

Easy Pecan Rolls

20 frozen Rhodes dinner rolls
1 (3.4 oz) box butterscotch cook & serve pudding mix
3/4 cups brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4-1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 stick melted butter


Lightly grease a bundt pan with cooking spray. Layer frozen rolls in pan. Sprinkle dry pudding mix over rolls. In small bowl combine brown sugar and cinnamon and pour evenly over rolls, next add the chopped pecans. Drizzle melted butter evenly over the rolls. Cover and let rise overnight. In the morning, bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately turn over onto a plate or serving platter.

Now for the good stuff!
