Pecan Sweet Roll Rings

Refrigerated tubes of crescent roll dough are used to create these tender treats. Loaded with chopped pecans, cinnamon and nutmeg, the eye-appealing rings feature a sweet glaze.

Yield

8 servings

Ingredients

2 (8 ounce) tubes refrigerated crescent rolls
4 tablespoons butter, melted, divided
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup granulated (white) sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup confectioners' (powdered) sugar
2 tablespoons maple syrup

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°F (191°C). Grease a baking sheet.

Unroll crescent dough and separate into eight rectangles; seal perforations. Brush with 2 tablespoons butter. In a small bowl, combine the pecans, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Sprinkle 1 tablespoon over each rectangle; gently press into dough. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting at a long side. Pinch seams to seal. Twist two or three times.

Cut six shallow diagonal slits in each roll. Shape each into a ring; pinch ends together. Place on a greased baking sheet; brush with remaining butter.

Bake for 12 to 14 minutes or until golden brown. In a small bowl, combine confectioners' sugar and syrup until smooth; drizzle over the warm rolls.
