  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 (8-ounce) can refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Combine brown sugar, butter, and syrup in an 8-inch round cake pan. Heat in oven 5 minutes, or until butter melts; stir gently to blend ingredients. Sprinkle pecans over butter mixture.
  3. Remove dough from package (do not unroll dough). Cut roll into 12 slices.
