    List of Ingredients

    2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
    1 cup warm 2% milk (110░ to 115░)
    2 large eggs, room temperature
    5 tablespoons butter, melted
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 teaspoon salt
    5 cups all-purpose flour
    1 cup butter, cubed
    2 cups packed brown sugar
    1/4 cup corn syrup
    1/2 to 3/4 cup chopped pecans
    2 tablespoons butter, melted
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


    1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk. Add the eggs, butter, sugar, salt and 3 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.

    2. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.

    3. Meanwhile, for sauce, melt butter in a large saucepan. Stir in brown sugar and corn syrup. Boil over medium heat for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour into a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with pecans; set aside.

    4. Punch the dough down. Turn onto a floured surface. Roll into a 17x15-in. rectangle. Spread butter to within 1/2 in. of edges. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over dough. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal.

    5. Cut into 15 slices. Place cut side down over caramel sauce. Cover; let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.

    6. Bake at 350░ until golden brown, 30-35 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes; invert onto a serving platter.

    YIELD: 15 servings.
