Holiday Rolls

Since I was a child, every Christmas Eve my mother would stay up after we went to bed prepping our morning breakfast of oooey-gooey rolls. Eventually we expanded these treats to occasionally have on Thanksgiving or New Year’s morning as well. It has now become my family’s tradition as well, and I have shared these with my in-laws who also love them and request them on holidays.

I don’t know where the recipe originates from (maybe my mom does), but it is easy. Here is what you need:

  • 1 package Rhodes frozen dinner rolls
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts work best)
  • 1/2 to 1 package butterscotch pudding (regular, but instant works in a pinch. I have also used caramel pudding when I could not find butterscotch, and I could not tell a difference in the flavor.)
  • Cinnamon
  • Bundt pan

Here is what to do:

  1. Grease bundt pan and sprinkle chopped nuts in the bottom.
  2. Later frozen dinner rolls, sprinkling with pudding and cinnamon between layers
  3. Heat butter and brown sugar until bubbling (you can do this in the microwave or on the stovetop)
  4. Pour butter/sugar mixture over rolls.
  5. Cover and refrigerate until morning.
  6. When ready to bake, let come to room temp for an hour to begin rise.
  7. Bake at 350 for 45 to 50 min until well risen and golden.
  8. Don’t eat them all yourself!
