Melt-in-Your Mouth Pecan Rolls

Your gonna love these little gems! I had a package of crescent dough still hanging out in my refrigerator that was fast approaching the use by date on the package. So, I decided to made these yummy Melt-In-Your-Mouth Pecan Rolls. I got the recipe for several years ago from a Taste of Home magazine.

My family loves them, minus the pecans. Sometimes, I’ll put pecans in a few of them just for me. I love that chewy gooey caramel with the chuch of those chopped pecans.  The other option since these makes 2 pans, do one pan with pecans and one pan without.

Now the one trick that I have discovered with this recipe is to lay the dough out on a piece of wax paper. Then seal all the perforated parts of the dough. Then when you are ready to roll the dough, do it slowly. If any of those seams didn’t quite seal, just pinch them together as you are rolling.

These Melt-in-Your Mouth Pecan Rolls are so delicious and will absolutely “melt-in-your-mouth”. I have included a picture of them before inverting the pan and after.
