I have made them a few times over the past year. Last Christmas I found similar frozen roll dough at Publix in Nokomis where I normally shop, but when I made them this fall, the only place I could find the small frozen rolls where at Albertson's and I looked ALL OVER! All I could find at most stores where packages of frozen rolls already raised and ready to put in the oven - that type of roll will not work. I was surprised to find the actual brand that Southern Living suggested at Albertson's in Venice.
I hope you family enjoys this recipe as much as mine has!
Easy Cinnamon Rolls
(Actually called Praline Pull-Apart Bread)
1 cup sugar
4 tsp. cinnamon, divided
1 (2 lb.) package of frozen bread roll dough – Rhodes White Dinner Rolls
½ cup butter, melted
1 cup chopped pecans
¾ cup whipping cream
¾ cup firmly packed brown sugar
Stir together granulated sugar and 3 tsp. cinnamon. Coat each roll in butter; dredge rolls in sugar mixture. (I dump the remaining sugar mixture over the rolls.) Arrange in a lightly greased 10 inch tube pan; sprinkle with pecans. Cover and chill 8 – 18 hours.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Beat whipping cream at high speed with an electric mixer until soft peaks form - a must; stir in brown sugar and remaining 1 tsp. cinnamon. Pour mixture over dough. Place pan on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet.
Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour or until golden brown. (I actually like them baked at around 50 minutes because I like them a little more doughy, though my husband liked them better at the full one hour baking time.) Cool on a wire rack 10 minutes; invert onto a serving plate, and drizzle with any remaining glaze in pan.
