Recipe by PanNan

This recipe was shared by a "chef" on another web site. A real family pleaser made much easier with the bread machine. The prep time below includes bread machine and rising time. With all those wonderful pecans, this has to be a Southern U.S. recipe.

i need to change my review! These buns really are the best!! i used the brown sugar instead of white for the syrup and it turned out PERFECT.( i was also careful to only boil for a minute, i think i boiled to long the first time, and that made the syrup go hard.) I might make a little more for this next batch, because its just so good! I have been putting rasins inside, rolling it up and putting it in the fridge overinght to rise. the rasins are nice and soft from sitting in the dough all night, and in the morning i just pop them in the oven for my family for breakfast. What a treat!!!
