Ingredients

Rolls

3 1/2
to 4 cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour or Better for Bread™ flour
1/3
cup granulated sugar
1
teaspoon salt
2
packages regular or quick active dry yeast
1
cup very warm milk (120°F to 130°F)
1/3
cup butter or margarine, softened
1
egg
1
cup packed brown sugar
1/2
cup butter or margarine
1/4
cup dark corn syrup
3/4
cup pecan halves

Pecan Filling

1/2
cup chopped pecans
1/4
cup packed brown sugar
1
teaspoon ground cinnamon
2
tablespoons butter or margarine, softened

  • 1 In large bowl, mix 2 cups of the flour, the granulated sugar, salt and yeast. Add milk, 1/3 cup butter and the egg. Beat with electric mixer on low speed 1 minute, scraping bowl frequently. Beat on medium speed 1 minute, scraping bowl frequently. Stir in enough remaining flour, 1 cup at a time, to make dough easy to handle.
  • 2 On lightly floured surface, gently roll dough in flour to coat. Knead about 5 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Place in greased large bowl, turning dough to grease all sides. Cover and let rise in warm place about 1 hour 30 minutes or until double. (Dough is ready if indentation remains when touched.)
  • 3 Grease 13x9-inch pan. In 1-quart saucepan, heat 1 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup butter to boiling, stirring constantly; remove from heat. Stir in corn syrup; cool 5 minutes. Pour into pan. Sprinkle with pecan halves.
  • 4 In small bowl, mix all filling ingredients except 2 tablespoons butter until crumbly. Punch down dough. On floured surface, pat or roll into 15x10-inch rectangle. Spread with 2 tablespoons butter; sprinkle with filling. Roll up tightly, beginning at 15-inch side. Pinch edge of dough into roll to seal; stretch and shape to make even. Cut into fifteen 1-inch slices. Place slightly apart in pan.
  • 5 Cover unbaked rolls tightly; immediately refrigerate at least 12 hours (to allow for rising) but no longer than 48 hours.
  • 6 Heat oven to 350°F. Uncover and bake 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately place heatproof serving plate upside down onto pan; turn plate and pan over. Let pan remain about 1 minute so caramel can drizzle over rolls.

Expert Tips

To bake rolls immediately after placing sliced dough in pan, let rise uncovered in warm place about 30 minutes or until double. Bake as directed.
