Holiday Pecan Rolls

  • DOUGH
  • 3 – 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1 package dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • FILLING
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon
  • TOPPING
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  1. Grease 16 muffin cups.  DOUGH – In a stand mixer with a dough hook or in your food processor, combine 3 cups flour and salt.   Combine yeast with the warm water and set aside.  Heat milk, sugar and butter – put in a microwave safe cup – heat on high for 50 seconds.  Slowly pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture.  Add egg,  then add the yeast mixture.   Process for approx. two minutes until the dough pulls away of the bowl.  Add additional flour if the dough does not pull away from the sides of the bowl. Place dough in a large greased bowl, cover and let rise for 30 minutes.  Combine the topping ingredients, brown sugar, cream and pecans.  Divide this mixture into the 16 greased muffin cups.  Once the dough has risen, roll into a 8 x 20 inch rectangle on a lightly floured surface.  Spread the butter over the dough and sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar mixture.  Roll lengthwise, pinch edges to seal, cut into 16 pieces.  Place one roll into each of the prepared muffin cups.  Cover and let rise for 30 minutes.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Bake the rolls for 18 – 20 minutes.  Immediately invert the pans onto foil lined baking sheets.  Tap the pans slightly and the rolls will pop out of the pans. Scrape any remaining topping mixture onto the rolls.  These are great served warm or at room temperature.
