What You'll Need

  • 2 (8-ounce) cans refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted and divided
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons maple syrup

What to Do

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Unroll crescent rolls, and separate each can into 2 rectangles, pressing perforations to seal. Brush evenly with 2 tablespoons melted butter.

  2. Stir together chopped pecans and next 3 ingredients; sprinkle 3 tablespoons pecan mixture onto each rectangle, pressing in gently.

  3. Roll up, starting at 1 long side, and twist. Cut 6 shallow 1/2-inch-long diagonal slits in each roll. Shape rolls into rings, pressing ends together; place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Brush rings evenly with remaining 1 tablespoon butter.

  4. Bake 12 minutes or until rings are golden.

  5. Meanwhile, stir together powdered sugar and maple syrup until glaze is smooth; drizzle over warm rings. Cut rings in half, and serve.


Make bread the center of your table, ?literally! Place in vases, breadsticks make attractive and edible centerpieces. Try stacking rolls on graduated cake stands for an equally unique focal point.
