Pecan Cinnamon Rolls Recipe @pinch

The dough for these pecan cinnamon rolls rises well and creates a light and fluffy roll. The style of making these is not traditional but makes them very easy to make. The filling is sweet and filled with cinnamon. Pecans add a delightful crunch. These would be delicious to wake up to any morning. I just can't go back to any canned cinnamon rolls after making these. Great for brunches, breakfast, or a late night snack... mmmm so good!!!!!
