"Almost Homemade" Cinnamon Rolls

My mom used to make the most delicious mini-cinni's when I was a kid. She made them by using refrigerator biscuit dough. Whether you roll them as mini's or standard size the results yield the same: delicious cinnamon rolls!

•1 Can (10 ounce) refrigerated biscuit dough
•1/2 Cup Sugar
•1/4 Cup brown sugar
•2 Tablespoons cinnamon
•1/2 Cup melted butter
•1/2 Cup pecans (Optional)

1.Step 1-Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2.Step 2-Butter baking dish and sprinkle in brown sugar and pecans.

3.Step 3-Open can of biscuits. Take one biscuit at a time and brush with butter. Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon on top of butter and roll biscuit into a log. Cut each log in half and place in 8 Inch baking dish, cut side up.

4.Step 4-Bake cinnamon rolls 15 minutes or until golden brown.

5.Step 5-Immediately turn cinnamon rolls onto a serving plate, spooning brown sugar and pecan mixture on top of rolls.

(My kids love to eat their cinni's with bacon. They like the salty and sweet combination. For a change one day I rolled up strips of bacon into the cinnamon roll.....Kid approved!)
