    Caramel Pecan Cinnamon Rolls

    1/4 C Sugar
    1 t Cinnamon
    1/8 C Chopped Pecans
    1/4 Melted Butter

    1/4 C Shortening
    2 Tbsp Butter
    2 C Flour
    2 Tbsp Sugar
    3/4 t salt
    4 t baking powder
    2/3 to 3/4 cup cold water

    Set oven to 400 Degrees


    Mix the cinnamon and sugar together and set aside.

    Stir the dry ingredients together (flour, salt, sugar, baking powder), then cut in shortening and 2 Tbsp Butter until almost like cornmeal. Some larger lumps are ok. Stir in water to make a soft but not a sticky dough. Start with the 2/3 cup, add more water a tsp or so at a time if needed. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface, knead a few time to smooth out the dough. Roll into a rectangle about 12 x 8. Brush well with the melted butter, sprinkle with filling and roll up from the long side, pinch to close. Cut with a serated knife in half and then those halves into half again, ending up with 8 rolls. Lay them on a well greased cookie sheet or jelly roll pan and bake for 12-15 minutes or until they are nicely golden brown.

    *Start making this when you put the rolls into the oven, and when the Caramel Topping is done follow directions

    Caramel Pecan Topping

    1 C Brown Sugar
    1/2 C Margarine or Butter (softened)
    1/4 C Dark Corn Syrup

    Heat 1 cup Brown Sugar and 1/2 Cup Margarine or Butter to boiling in a saucepan, stirring constantly; remove immediately from heat. Stir in corn syrup well. Spoon over rolls with 3-5 minutes left to bake.

    Repeat process of Caramel Topping but let cool this time...

    Allow rolls to come out of oven and cool for about 5-7 min.

    Then Drizzle remaining Caramel Topping on Rolls and garnish with more chopped pecans. For a lighter roll, do not do second coat of caramel topping.

    Forgot to add that when you put in the filling, you sprinkle the pecans, chopped inside too if you like, it's all by choice with the nuts, you can use walnuts or currants if you like. Also the same for the top.
