"This is an Stougaard old family favorite. Not the easiest to make, but well worth the trouble. Gooey and sweet. Best eaten fresh from the oven. I usually double the recipe because if you go to the trouble to make yeast rolls - make lots. Milk can also be warmed in the microwave." — Snuffles

My husband and I made these and loved them! The only problem was the one we caused, we doubled the topping recipe and it caused the caramel to remain gritty. (It doesn't melt completely.) Follow the exact recipe and they are wonderful!
These were good. You must eat them the first day tho',they become stale very quickly!
I'm thrilled to be the first to rate this recipe! These are the BEST cinnamon rolls I've made on this site! As for being time consuming, they are no more than any other cinnamon roll recipe. I had originally planned to frost them, but they are perfect without. My husband who doesn't usually like sweets, can't get enough of these. The only change I made was chopping the pecans instead of leaving them whole. You've got a real winner here. Thanks so much for submitting.
Yum! Yum! Yum! These are great! The whole family gobbled them up. I didn't add the nuts as I have one that doesn't like them, but they still were great! Thanks!
I have NEVER had any luck making yeast breads, and this was so wonderful! I always read the reviews, and took advice on three of them - did not add the water to the caramel sauce - used a bit more butter - and removed from the pan immediately upon taking out of the oven. Very smooth caramel sauce - and no soggy rolls. They were so delicious!
What an awesome recipe - and now I have some confidence in making yeast breads!
Thank you so much!
I had to add 3 tbs more water to the dough to get all the flour to incorporate and they topping was a bit to "hard" for my taste. They had good taste but after they were no longer hot we had to throw em in the nuker so the sticky on the top didn't break our teeth out. I could totally be to blame for the topping so I intend on trying these again but all in all a pretty solid recipe.
these were very good. the only reason i rated this as four starts is because the "caramel" was runny when i filled the buns onto a plate after i took them out of the oven. it didn't really stick to the top of the rolls. i think i'll omit the water next time. otherwise, these were very yummy. even the dough tasted so much better than the pre-made rolls at the store and mall. i am definitely going to try this recipe again, thanks so much for sharing!
I didn't actually make the cinnamon rolls, but I did use the pecan syrup part of this recipe. I really dont like how long it takes to make any cinnamon roll/sticky bun, but I love them, so instead I bought some pillsbury cinnabon cinnamon rolls, put them in the mixture, let them sit over night and bake them in the morning... Delicious!! and much less work!!
