Serves: 9

Baking Time: 18 min

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar, divided
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted, divided
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans, divided
  • 1 (8-ounce) package refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray. 
     
  2. In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons butter, and the corn syrup; mix well until smooth then spread over bottom of prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup pecans. 
     
  3. Unroll crescent dough and press seams together to form one large rectangle. Brush with remaining 1 tablespoon butter. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup brown sugar, the cinnamon, and the remaining 1/4 cup pecans. 
     
  4. Starting at a wide end, roll up dough jelly-roll style. With a sharp knife, cut into 9 equal slices and place each cut-side down in baking dish. 
     
  5. Bake 18 to 20 minutes, or until puffed and golden. Remove from oven and immediately invert onto a serving platter. Be careful: the melted sugar is very hot. Allow to cool slightly then serve warm.
