Pecan Cinnamon Rolls Recipe
Ingredients for Dough
- 1 1/4 cups milk
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
- 3 1/2 to 4 cups flour
Ingredients for Filling
- 1/4 cup softened butter
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 1/4 cup chopped pecans
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
Ingredients for Glaze
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1/3 cup heavy cream
To begin, heat the milk, butter, and sugar in a microwave until it reaches 120 degrees F.
In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 cups of flour and then slowly spoon the yeast into the flour. Then combine warm mixture, egg, and flour. Beat for 3 minutes.
Continue adding flour until dough is soft. Cover a surface with flour. Knead dough on prepared surface for 3 to 5 minutes or until the dough is smooth and elastic.
Place the dough in a bowl and cover. Allow the dough to rest for 20 minutes in a warm place.
While the dough is resting, combine born sugar, cinnamon, scraped vanilla bean paste, and chopped pecans. Set aside.
Re-flour surface. Roll the dough out into a rectangular shape, around 15X10 inches. Spread 1/4 butter across the surface of the dough and then spread the brown sugar mixture over the top.
Beginning from the long end, roll the dough into a tight cylinder. Slice the cylinder into 15-21 even slices. Place the slices onto a greased 9X13 inch baking pan.
Cover and refrigerate prepared rolls. In the morning, remove pan from refrigerator and allow to stand for 30-4o minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F then bake for 20-25 minutes
