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.
