Day 2: Easy Cinnamon Pecan Caramel Rolls

Oh, this is so easy, and people think you've been baking all morning. Melt 1/2 stick of butter in a round cake pan in the oven, set at 375 degrees.

Spread abut 1/2 cup of nuts, like pecans, or whatever you've got available, along with 1/2 c of brown sugar, over the melted butter.

Open a package of cinnamon rolls, like Pillsbury or whatever you have available. Put the rolls on top of the butter/sugar/nut stuff.

Throw away the little package of powdered sugar/icing that came with the cinnamon rolls package. Or let your kids eat it and go ahead and make that annual dentist appointment for them now.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.

Take out of oven, put a pretty dish on top of the pan, tip it over, and let the wonderful smells permeate the whole house, like you're some kind of phenomenal cooking maven. Hold fingers and thumb that you've just burned under cold water.

Share the rolls with any family members that get up out of bed before noon.

Those sound delicious, although I did gasp out loud when you said to throw away the icing! The photo is great--did you use your new flash?
I've only read the first story in the Stephen King book so far but loved that one. I'm so bad--my son got the book for Christmas and I snatched it away.
