    These are the best and SO simple to make as the recipe is written! But for my family's personal preference, I increased the brown sugar and butter to 3/4 cup each, added a teaspoon of vanilla, increased the butterscotch to 1 1/2 packages as my family likes more of the carmelized syrup. I also sprinkle the cinnamon in the bottom of the bundt pan, then the pecans, rolls, butterscotch and lastly the sugar and butter mixture and another sprinkle of cinnamon. Just to experiment, I rolled each "ball" in the butterscotch mixture and it didn't seem to make a difference after it was finished baking versus pouring it over the top as the recipe is written. Let it sit overnight in the oven, set the timebake and walla it's ready to go the next morning. What could be better than waking up to the smell of these rolls! Thanks so much Jen for submitting this recipe! This is definitely a keeper!!!  -  27 Dec 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I love this recipe and have used it and lost it over and over again over the years, so am so glad to find it again. I remember rolling each piece of bread dough in the dry pudding/cinnamon mixture before placing them into the pan, then pouring the butter mixture over the entire thing. It guarantees gooey goodness on every single piece!  -  29 Oct 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I needed something quick to take to our church monthly breakfast. These are awesome! I only had frozen dinner rolls in the freezer so they were already in balls. They thawed very quickly, so that saved a lot of time. Next, I added about a 1/2-3/4 cup of heavy whipping cream (I was cleaning out the frig) to the melted butter and brown sugar mixture, cooked on low until the sugar was dissolved. Poured over the rolls with pudding/cinnamon and then everything else the same! Cooked for approx 40 minutes. This is a keeper and I will definetly use it again! Thanks Jen for posting!  -  16 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
