Hi girls,

Here's my recipe for easy and delicious "homemade" cinnamon rolls, using frozen biscuits as a shortcut. Trust me ... these are really yummy. You won't have a crumb left.

Toasted Pecan Cinnamon Rolls

1 package frozen buttermilk biscuits (you need 12 biscuits)
1/2 cup chopped pecans

1/3 cup butter, at room temperature

2/3 cup packed light brown sugar

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon


1 stick butter, at room temperature
4 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 cup powdered sugar, sifted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Toast the pecans on a cookie sheet in preheate
d oven for approximately 7-8 minutes. Set aside to cool completely. (Do NOT skip this step. Toasting the pecans is what takes these cinnamon rolls over the top.)

Arrange frozen biscuits in three rows of four on a lightly floured surface. Cover with paper towels and allow to sit until the biscuits are thawed (about 45 minutes).

While biscuits are thawing, combine brown sugar and cinnamon and set aside.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

When biscuits are thawed, remove paper towels, sprinkle very lightly with flour, and press biscuits together to form into a rectangle.

Spread the dough evenly with the butter. Sprinkle the brown sugar mixture evenly over the butter. Arrange toasted pecans over the brown sugar mixture.

Starting at the long end, roll the dough being careful to k
eep dough together.

Slice the roll into 1 inch slices and place rolls in a 9-inch square baking dish or a cake pan that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.

Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the cinnamon rolls are golden brown. Remove from oven and sit on a cooling rack for 5-10 minutes to rest.

While biscuits are resting, make the frosting by combining all frosting ingredients with a wire whisk until smooth and creamy. (Go ahead... stick your finger in the frosting and take a lick. You know you want to. mmmmmmmmm)

Frost the biscuits with as much frosting as you like. (I always have some frosting left over. It is yummy on graham crackers!) Serve warm.

Sweet Treat Blessings,
