  • 1 loaf (16 oz.) frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 1⁄4 cup plus 1⁄3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1⁄2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp. plus 1⁄3 cup butter, softened
  • 3 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 cup chopped pecans


  • Thaw bread dough according to package directions. When warm, roll out on lightly floured surface to 15-by-12-inch rectangle. Grease a 13-by-9-inch pan with nonstick baking spray containing flour.
  • In small bowl, combine 1⁄4 cup brown sugar, cinnamon, and 2 tablespoons butter; spread evenly over dough. Roll up dough, starting with the 12-inch side, and pinch edges to seal.
  • In small saucepan, combine 1⁄3 cup butter, 1⁄3 cup brown sugar, and honey; cook over low heat until blended and smooth. Pour into prepared pan and sprinkle with nuts.
  • Cut rolls into 12 slices (1 inch) and lay, cut-side down, in 4 rows of 3 in the sauce in the pan. Let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 375°F for 22 to 27 minutes until golden brown. Invert onto wire rack and let cool.
