Pecan Pullaparts

Pecan Pullaparts

1 (8 ounce) can crescent rolls
3 tablespoons melted butter, divided
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Cover a cutting board with parchment paper.  Unroll crescent rolls on the parchment paper, do not separate into triangles.

Press the seams together.  Brush 2 tablespoons of butter over dough.

Sprinkle cinnamon over top.

Sprinkle sugar over top of dough.

Top with chopped pecans.  

Cut into 3/4 inch strips.

Cut each strip in half.

Spray 4 muffin cups with non-stick cooking spray.  Criss cross 4 dough pieces in the four cooking sprayed muffin cups, cinnamon side up.

Fold the edges of the dough strip into the muffin cup.

Roll up remaining pieces of dough, so they look like mini cinnamon rolls.

Arrange 3 rolled dough pieces on top of dough in each muffin cup. 

Brush the top with remaining butter.

 Bake 17 minutes or until golden brown.  Makes 4 Pullaparts.

I carry a small notebook with me everywhere I go.  I jot down ideas for cookbooks and recipes in it.  Whenever I try a dish I really like at a restaurant, I pull out my trusty notebook and try to decipher what ingredients are in it and the steps necessary to recreate it.  I have done this so often, that I now have my husband and son doing it too.  It has become a family game for us.

This recipe is another one I tasted and deciphered while I was in Las Vegas.  It is delicious!  It tastes like a pecan cinnamon roll, but is lighter and fluffier than traditional cinnamon rolls.  If you have visited my blog before and only looked at the pictures, today is the day to take action.  You can make this and you will be so glad you did!
