Easter Morning Roll
My hubby worked for the Pillsbury Company for for 33 years. The Bake-Off was an event we all looked forward to. This recipe was a winner in 1969. These rolls are very easy to make, and are very good. Many Christian families make these during Holy Week to teach their children about the Resurrection, as the marshmallow disappears during cooking. It is a quick roll to make for Easter Brunch, and a good illustration of the empty tomb that was found on Easter Morning.
1/4 C sugar
2 TBS flour
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 8oz cans of Pillsbury crescent rolls
16 large marshmallows
1/4 C butter, melted
1/2 C powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2-3 tsp. milk
1/2 C pecans, chopped
Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 16 medium muffin cups with No-Stick Cooking Spray. In small bowl, mix granulated sugar, flour and cinnamon.
Separate dough into 16 triangles. For each roll, dip 1 marshmallow into melted butter; roll in sugar mixture. Place marshmallow on shortest side of triangle. Roll up, starting at shortest side and rolling to opposite point. Completely cover marshmallow with dough; firmly pinch edges to seal. Dip end in remaining butter; place butter side down in muffin cup.
Bake at 375F 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. (Place foil or cookie sheet on rack below muffin cups to guard against spills.) Cool in pan 1 minute. Remove rolls from muffin cups; place on cooling racks set over waxed paper. In small bowl, mix powdered sugar, vanilla and enough milk for desired drizzling consistency. Drizzle glaze over warm rolls. Sprinkle with nuts. Serve warm.
