Hi, it’s Kristy in the Rada Kitchen, and today I’m making easy easy easy caramel pecan rolls. They’re so easy but everyone will think you spent hours making them. My mom has been making them for years and I got the recipe from her so I want to share them with you!
What you need, depending on the size of the pan, are these frozen dinner rolls. You can use a bun pan, you can use a rectangular baker, if it’s a smaller pan you don’t use as many rolls. I’m using this Rada Stoneware 9” x 13” pan. This doesn’t need seasoning. I’ve used it quite a bit, so it’s ready to go. If you use any other pan you’ll want to spray it well with butter spray.
So what you do is you take these frozen rolls and do this the night before. They’re going to make you look like a great chef when you don’t even have to do anything. We’re just going to line these up in that baking pan. Once you have those, if you want a finger size in-between them because they’re going to rise in the oven overnight. I’m going to take this 3.5 ounce box of dry butterscotch pudding. We’re just going to sprinkle that over. Then I have a half cup of pecans. Now, you can leave them whole, but I’m just going to chop them up with this Rada French Chef Knife. You might want to use more than half a cup. Now what you’re going to do is just sprinkle nuts.
Here we have 1 stick of butter or margarine. We’re going to melt this in the microwave. The trick is not to get it too hot, because we’re going to add brown sugar to it, and if it gets too hot it will curdle and won’t work as well. I’m going to put it in for 20 seconds. After 20 seconds in my microwave, that’s about right. I’m going to stir it to get those lumps out. If you start stirring it’ll melt the rest of those pieces. I’m going to add to that ¾’s cup to a cup brown sugar.
We’re just going to pour that over our frozen rolls. If it doesn’t stick to them, that’s fine. So you’re ready to put these in your cold oven. It’s about bedtime so we’ll put them in now and let them rise overnight.
Now it’s the next morning. Don’t open the oven. Leave it cold. If you want to peek at your rolls, they’re going to be pretty high in the pan. If you see they’re coming over the pan you might want to push them in a little bit so you won’t get a mess in your oven. So what we’re going to do is bake the rolls in the cold oven at 325 degrees for 25 minutes. With stoneware you might want to go a little longer. It’s worse to overcook them than undercook them. So we’ll come back in about 25 minutes.
So it has been about a half hour and our rolls are looking good. We’ll take them out and let them cool for about 5 to 10 minutes, then we’re going to flip them over into the serving container. I’m going to use this Rada Cookie Sheet. I’m going to flip these over onto a platter. You can scrape out all that extra caramel. And there you have delicious easy easy caramel pecan rolls.
