DIRECTIONS

  • DOUGH:
  • Mix together the milk, sugar, and salt.
  • In a small bowl mix the yeast and lukewarm water to proof a little.
  • Add the yeast to the above.
  • Add the eggs, beaten, and the soft butter; mix well.
  • Mix in the flour, a little at a time remembering the hint above (you don't want it so sticky that you can't handle it, but a very soft dough).
  • Place in buttered bowl; cover; rise once.
  • Punch down and rise again.
  • While this is rising prepare the filling and the pecan topping.
  • FILLING:
  • In a small bowl mix the butter, sugar, and cinnamon together; set aside.
  • STICKY PECAN TOPPING:
  • Mix the melted butter, brown sugar, and pecans together and spread evenly in the bottom of 9x13 pan.
  • BACK TO THE DOUGH:
  • When risen put the dough on a lightly floured surface.
  • Roll into a 9x18 oblong.
  • Spread with the cinnamon filling.
  • Roll up tightly starting at the wide side; seal well by pinching edges of roll together.
  • Cut into 1" slices and evenly place in the pan on top of the pecan topping.
  • Let rise till ALMOST DOUBLE, about 35-40 minutes.
  • Bake in a 375 degree oven for 25-30 minutes.
  • When you take them out of the oven, immediately turn them upside down on a large tray or platter.
  • Let the pan stay over the rolls a minute or two so that the topping runs down over them and you get all the goodness from the pan.
