    I love how easy they are. You don't even have to roll out the dough. I think next time I will try lightly buttering the dough so that the pecan mixture sticks a little better.

    I made these for Christmas morning brunch. Due to nut allergies, I left one pan plain and added raisins to the other pan. They were gone quickly. I will make again!!

    In fact, I make it quite often. I bring them into work from right out of the oven. They are gone by the time my coffee gets cold. I would like to try it sometime with Dark Karo Syrup. I'm from the PA Dutch country, so we use that a lot in our shoo-fly pies and sticky buns. Makes the flavor more intense.

    These are the best!!! I tweaked the recipe a bit just because my daughter has a dislike of pecans. I leave the pecans whole and lay them upside down on the sugar/butter/syrup layer so they are easy for her to pick off and give them to Daddy! My husband loves these! I have made other sweet morning treats and when I ask him what he thought about the it his reply is always "It's good but they are not Melt-in-Your-Mouth Pecan Rolls."
