Mini Caramel Pecan Rolls

Love this new easy recipe!  I have had this recipe for quite some time and finally decided to try it over the holidays.  Amy used to be in my Sunday school class, and she also loved to cook.  We often shared recipes.  Amy has since moved, and she and her family are enjoying the beauty of Colorado.

I debated Cheese Blintzes (which we love), homemade cinnamon rolls, monkey bread but due to time and the Christmas crazies, I decided to try this quick and easy version of pecan rolls. They are just too yummy... but I love pecans.  Next time, I would try to line the pan with foil or wax paper so I could have handles and lift the rolls out and flip them over so the yumminess would be on top!  I didn't do that this time but they were still very enjoyable!



Mini Caramel Pecan Rolls


2  - 8 oz. tubes crescent roll dough
5 Tbsp butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup (or more :)) of chopped pecans
3 Tbsp butter, melted
1/4 cup sugar/2 tsp cinnamon - mixed

Melt 5 Tbsp butter in a 9 x 13 baking dish.  Add brown sugar, water and pecans to same pan and mix.  Roll out crescent rolls flat - pressing the seams together of 2 rolls to form 8 rectangles.  Brush with the other melted butter and sprinkle with the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Roll up long-ways. Slice into small one inch rolls and place evenly on top of pecan mixture in pan. Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes or until nice and golden brown.
