Prep Time



Total Time






cup packed brown sugar
cup butter or margarine
cup corn syrup
tablespoons whipping cream
cup pecan halves, if desired
bag (36.5 oz) frozen cinnamon rolls with cream cheese frosting (12 rolls)
  1. In 1-quart saucepan, heat brown sugar and butter to boiling, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in corn syrup and whipping cream. Heat to boiling. Remove from heat; cool 5 minutes.
  2. Spray bottom and sides of 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray. Pour caramel mixture evenly over bottom of pan. Sprinkle with pecans.
  3. Place frozen rolls in 4 rows by 3 rows evenly on caramel-pecan mixture. Cover with plastic wrap generously sprayed with cooking spray. (Save frosting packet for another use.)
  4. Refrigerate rolls 5 hours or overnight to let dough rise.
  5. About 2 3/4 hours before serving rolls, remove rolls from refrigerator and place pan on cooling rack. Let rolls continue to rise at room temperature about 2 hours or until almost double in size (actual rising time depends on temperature of kitchen).
  6. Heat oven to 375ºF. Carefully remove plastic wrap from rolls. Cover pan with foil. Bake 20 minutes; remove foil. Bake 15 to 20 minutes longer or until rolls are deep golden brown. Immediately place heatproof serving plate or tray upside down on pan; carefully turn plate and pan over. Leave pan over rolls 1 minute; remove pan. Serve warm.
