  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add the eggs, sugar, butter, salt, vanilla and 2 cups of flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl; turn once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/2 hours.
  3. In a small saucepan, combine the brown sugar, honey, butter and salt; bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Boil for 1 minute. Pour into a greased 13x9-in. baking pan; sprinkle with pecans. Set aside.
  4. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; roll into a 24x8-in. rectangle; brush with butter to within 1 in of edges. Combine the pecans, brown sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over butter.
  5. Roll up from long side; seal seam. Cut into 1-in. slices; place cut side down in pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  6. Bake at 350° for 25-28 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 1 minute; invert onto a serving platter.
