Comfort Food

For me, comfort food usually means something substantial, and it always includes potatoes, but yesterday I wanted something sweet, so I made Maple-Cinnamon-Pecan Pull Aparts. It's a recipe that I've had since 2008 and it comes from the Pillsbury website. Oh, and there are no potatoes. ;) Let's just say that after a less than stellar weekend, my little heart needed some comfort. These are yummy! In fact, I forgot to take a picture until after I'd already eaten!

Yes... that back corner was mine!!! And it was so tasty right out of the oven with a cold glass of milk.

Maple-Cinnamon-Pecan Pull Aparts

1/2 cup chopped pecans

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted

1/4 cup sour cream

1 teaspoon maple flavor or vanilla

1 can (17.5 oz) Pillsbury Grands! Flaky Supreme refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 8 X 4 inch loaf pan with cooking spray. In large bowl, mix all ingredients except cinnamon rolls with icing.

2. Separate dough into 5 rolls; set icing aside. Cut each roll into quarters; add to pecan mixture, tossing gently to caot. Spoon roll mixture into pan.

3. Bake 45-50 minutes or until deep golden brown. Cool 10 minutes. Turn upside down onto serving plate or platter. Spread with icing. Serve warm.

I wish I hadn't been in such a hurry to eat it! It was so pretty when it was hot and the icing was melting. Did you fix any comfort food over the weekend? See the links to blog hops in the next post!
