Happy Tuesday! I have a little confession. I LOVE breakfast foods! Some of the best foods are typically served at breakfast - but I really like to do breakfast for dinner. :-) Here is one of my all time favorites.
For our first theme week - I'm hoping you can share your favorite dessert next week. What do you think?
1/4 cup plus 1 1/2 teaspoons shortening
3 cups of self-rising flour
1 cup of milk
1/2 cup of butter (or margarine) softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
1 tablespoon cinnamon
3/4 cup pecans (chopped)
Cut shortening into flour with pastry blender (or a fork or two) until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add milk, stirring until dry ingredients are moistened. Turn dough out onto a floured surface; knead lightly.
Roll dough into a 20x14-inch rectangle; spread the softened butter on dough, leaving a border of about 1/2-inch. Combine sugar and cinnamon; mix well, and sprinkle over butter. Top with pecans and roll up jelly roll fashion (starting on one of the long sides); press edges and ends together securely. Cut into 1 inch slices; place cut side down in a buttered 13x9 baking pan. Bake at 375° for 20 to 25 minutes.
1 1/4 cup powered sugar
3 tablespoon milk
1/4 teaspoons vanilla
Combine powdered sugar, milk and vanilla; drizzle over warm rolls.
