EASY Pecan Rolls with Warm Caramel

A few weeks ago my very dear friend, Julie gave me a bag of fresh pecans still in their shells. A family friend sends them each year to Julie’s parents-Her dad gave some to her with one request: “Give some of these to that friend Janelle of yours and if she happens to make something gooey, save a piece for me”. I was SO tickled! We all live on the same street, so it would be easy for me to walk down a little treat. So, one evening last week I broke some of these bad boys open and gave this recipe a whirl! Ohhh…did they look and smell SO good. Guess what? He got the entire batch-not just a piece….that is if those grandkids of his didn’t get to them first!

In a small bowl combine brown sugar, melted butter, and corn syrup.

Shelling pecans

Chop pecans and place in a bowl mixed with sugar and cinnamon.

Unroll crescent rolls like so

Pinch perforations together to seal and roll.

Sprinkle with sugar, cinnamon, and pecans. Roll up (this is super simple)

You will end up with a long cylinder ready to slice!

Place each pecan roll cut side down in an 8×8 pan. Bake at 375 for appx 15 mins until lightly golden.

When done, turn pecan rolls upside down and they will fall out of the pan with a caramel drizzle on top. Mmmmmm……
