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