    for the dough
  • 1 cup milk
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 1/2 cups bread flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package active dry yeast (2 1/4 teaspoons)
  • for the filling
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • for the topping
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans (feel free to add more pecans to taste)
  1. In the bowl of your mixer, combine 1 cup flour, yeast, sugar and salt. Heat milk to 120 degrees and stir in butter, butter does not have to melt. Using the beater attachment of your mixer, stir in milk to flour mixture until well combined. Add in eggs, one at a time. Gradually add in remaining flour until a soft dough forms. Switch to dough hook or knead by hand for 7-8 minutes. Place dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm location until doubled in size.
  2. Prepare topping. In a small saucepan, combine butter, brown sugar and corn syrup. Heat until just below boiling and all sugar is melted. Pour into a greased 9 x 13 pan. Sprinkle chopped pecans evenly over topping. Set pan aside.
  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and roll out into a 18 x 15 inch rectangle. Brush melted butter over entire surface. Combine sugar and cinnamon then sprinkle evenly over dough. Spread pecans in the same manner, coating evenly. Starting on a short side, roll dough, jelly roll style. Pinch seam to secure. Cut dough into 12 even slices approximately 1 1/4 inch thick. Place rolls, cut side down in prepared pan. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled and spaces between rolls are no longer visible. (at this point you can also place in the refrigerator for baking later) Once rolls are risen, remove plastic wrap and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 25-35 minutes, until golden brown.
  4. Remove from oven and let sit for one minute. Cover cooling rack or large tray with foil, then carefully invert rolls onto foil. PLease use caution. CARAMEL IS EXTREMELY HOT AND CAN BURN YOU. Remove pan and let rolls sit for 5 minutes before serving.
