“I wanted cinnamon rolls, but I didn't want to go to all the trouble of making the traditional ones.So I took a can of Pillsbury "Butter Tastin" Grands some pecans and came up with these.If you want to make smaller rolls just cut the biscuits in half, and adjust the amount of margarine used on each cirle of dough.The amounts of the ingredients in the recipe is what I liked to use, but the amounts can be changed to suit your own tastes.If desired you top with a glaze.My niece DarksLight ( who is a member here) helped me come up with the name.Submitted to "ZAAR" on October 2nd,2008”
