I recommend these rolls as a sweet treat for Christmas or Easter morning, or whenever you have overnight guests. When my son and son-in-law visit, they devour them almost before they hit the table. They're so yummy, gooey and good.

"Here, in the deep South we use pecans as a sub for the Almonds, coarsely chopped, at times instead of the Almonds ... Oh yeah!"

"This is one of my hubbies favorites. I had to adjust the recipe as we do not have frozen

bread dough dinner rolls. Easy to make and fun too!"
