  • 12 frozen dough dinner rolls thawed but still a little cold (or you could use your own homemade dough recipe- 1 pound of dough cut into roll-size pieces)
  • ½ cup pecans chopped (or walnuts work well too!)
  • cup butter melted
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon + ½ teaspoon cinnamon


  • Spray a 9" round baking pan (I just used a pie dish) with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Sprinkle the pecans evenly around the bottom of the pan.
  • In a small bowl, combine the cinnamon and sugar.
  • Pour your melted butter into a separate small bowl.
  • Dip each roll into the butter and then roll in the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
  • Place roll in the pan and repeat with the remaining rolls.
  • Once all the rolls have been dipped, combine the remaining cinnamon-sugar and butter and evenly pour over the rolls in the pan.
  • Cover with plastic wrap (spray your plastic wrap with non-stick cooking spray so that your rolls don't stick to it!) and let rise until doubled.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until they start to brown.
  • Remove from oven, let cool for about 5 minutes, and then invert them onto a serving plate.
