  • loaf baking pan

Ingredients
  

  • 17.5 ounce package Pillsbury Grands Pumpkin Spice or Cinnamon rolls
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans

Sugar coating:

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Caramel:

  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 3/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375F.
  • Spray a loaf pan with Baker's release spray.
  • Whisk together the butter, brown sugar, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice and pecans for the caramel in a saucepan and stir together over low heat until sugar dissolves and butter melts.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.
  • Pour enough caramel in the bottom of the loaf pan to cover, then sprinkle in the extra pecans.
  • Stir together the sugar and pumpkin pie spice coating in a small bowl.
  • Open rolls and separate. Cut rolls into fourths and roll like a meatball.
  • Dredge the roll pieces in the spiced sugar then drop a single layer into the loaf pan.
  • Pour enough caramel to coat the outsides of the roll pieces.
  • Finish with remaining dough pieces, pouring all the rest of the caramel over them.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes or until fully risen and cooked through.
  • Remove pan from oven and let cool down for ten-fifteen minutes, then invert onto a platter, spooning any remaining caramel in the pans over the top.
  • Drizzle icing from the roll package over the top while still warm.
