In all the time this recipe has been posted, I have never noticed that it says INSTANT butterscotch pudding mix. When I checked my recipe, it says not to use instant...so either I made this error when submitting the recipe or else allrecipes made the error. I have always used the cook and serve butterscotch pudding mix (and always JELLO brand as well). I hope that will maybe help some of you who have had trouble with the recipe turning out. I apologize and hope that you enjoy it. Thanks- Heidi

I tried this recipe and carried it to a shower and only 4 were eaten. It was dry and not very appealing. Maybe I used the wrong kind of rolls. I used frozen yeast dinner rolls.

I have to apologize that I did neglect to include inverting the pan onto a foil lined cookie sheet after baking. This makes clean up much easier and the rolls more enjoyable. (you don't have to try to scrape the topping off the bottom of the pan that way! :) Thank you to all who tried it and I hope you all enjoyed it!

My gramma made similar rolls to these when I was young. I used my homemade white bread dough to make these. I made a few changes: I increased the butter to 3/4 cup, melted it with the brown sugar, and spread it in the bottom of the 9 x 13 pan. Also, make sure you spray the sides of the pan very well, or else the rolls will stick. I sprinkled the pudding mix right on top of the butter/brown sugar, then sprinkled pecan pieces on top. Then I placed the rolls on top of all that, let them rise, then baked them. They turned out so good! Thanks!

I used a bundt pan sprayed with nonstick cooking spray and used 22 rolls instead of 18. It turned out really pretty. I also included 1 tsp. ground cinnamon with the brown sugar. It's a great breakfast treat or snack ;)

This is one of my best finds on this site!!!! I couldnt find frozen dinner rolls at the store so I tried Pillsbury Country biscuits in the refrigerator can. They worked perfectly, but you need two cans for the recipe. These were tasty and moist and easy to make. They smell up the house pretty good too! Thanks for this great recipe!

My mom always made something very complicated called "Butterscotch Rolls" that involved a whole lotta work, but they were the best thing ever. We had them once a year on christmas morning. I was always intimidated to try making them myself. Then I saw this recipe, and it was CLOSE ENOUGH for me! They have that same taste and almost the same texture I remember. I have made this recipe a few times now and my family has loved them every time. They are a little rich, so I would not make them more then two or three times a year. Whatever you do, DON'T double the butter/brown sugar. I tried it once and it made them harder to cook because the center stayed doughy so long that the rest of the rolls on the outside started burning, even after covering with foil. It just became a big headache. I really appreciate how easy this recipe is. I use Rhodes frozen dinner rolls. They are perfect for Christmas mornings because they fill the whole house with a wonderful aroma, and they are really easy to just pop in the oven in the morning while presents are being opened. Thanks!

I added the pudding mix to the butter/sugar mixture, along with 2 TBS milk, then poured it over the rolls. Invert the pan onto a serving dish immediately after taking out of the oven to help coat each roll. The flavor was great.
