Pecans are one of my favorite nuts. When I was a kid, my great-grandmother had many pecan trees on her property. I remember gathering, cracking and adding pecans to pies, brownies and other goodies.
Here I use them to fix tasty pinwheels made from Big & Buttery Pillsbury® Crescent rolls, butter, brown sugar and cinnamon.
Start by unrolling the dough on a work surface. Press all the perforations together so it’s one continuous sheet of dough. Then brush the dough with butter; sprinkle it with brown sugar, cinnamon and pecans. Simply roll the dough up, and slice it into 36 equal pieces.
Bake at 350° for 12 to 17 minutes or until golden brown.
These pinwheels are crisp, nutty and full of flavor. I like to serve them warm at breakfast, but they would make a sweet treat anytime.
