Melt in your mouth Pecan Rolls

I really do like to bake from scratch, but I also like to find good semi-homemade recipes.  Using refrigerated Crescent rolls, help speed up the process with this recipe and you still get great results.  These melt in your mouth pecan rolls do exactly what they say. They melt in your mouth.  Full of my two favorite things.....Butter and Brown Sugar.  Wow!

1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter softened
1/4 cup corn syrup
2 tubes refrigerated crescent rolls
2/3 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon

In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, butter and corn syrup.  Spread in two greased 8 inch square baking pans; set aside. 

Unroll each tube of crescent roll dough into a rectangle; seal seams and perforations.  Combine pecans, sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over dough.  Roll up, jelly roll style, starting with a long side; seal edge.  Cut each roll into 16 slices.  Place cut side down in prepared pans.  Bake at 375 degrees for 13-17 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool in pans for 1 minutes before inverting onto serving plates.

*Note:  Today I used one 10" pie pan.  I cut mine bigger and only got 8 per tube.  If you follow the directions, these make bite size rolls and you should get a total of 32.  I got a total of 16.
