Sensational Cinnamon Rolls

Ingredients:

  • 2 cans (8-ounce) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 6 TBSP butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 TBSP sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • TOPPING:
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 TBSP half-and-half or whipping cream
  • 1/4 tsp almond or vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt

Directions:

  1. Unroll crescent rolls and separate dough along center perforations to form 4 rectangles. Press diagonal perforations to seal.
  2. Stir together butter and next 4 ingredients. Spread evenly over 1 side of each rectangle. Roll up jellyroll style.
  3. Place rolls on baking sheet and freeze for 10 minutes to make slicing easier. Gently cut each log into 6 (1-inch) slices, using a serrated knife.
  4. Place rolls 1/4 inch apart, into 2 (8-inch) greased cake pans. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-18 minutes or until golden.
  5. Cool 5-10 minutes. Stir together topping ingredients. Drizzle over warm rolls and serve immediately.
