Susan, owner/innkeeper has been doing more baking lately, since Jackson has picked up her breakfast duties.  She made Pecan Bites the other day and is sharing the recipe, here.

  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 can (8oz) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans

1. Heat over to 375 degrees.  In small bowl, mix brown sugar, butter and corn syrup; blend well. Spread in bottom of ungreased 8 or 9 inch round cake pan.

2. Unroll crescent roll dough and separate into 4 rectangles, firmly press perforations to seal. 

3.  In small bowl, mix granulated sugar and cinnamon, sprinkle mixture evenly over rectangles.  Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of pecans over each rectangle.

4.  Starting at shorter side, roll up each rectangle; pinch edges to seal.  Cut each roll into 4 slices.  Place cut side down over brown sugar mixture in the pan.

5.  Bake 20 – 27 minutes or until golden brown. 

Cool pan 1 minute; turn upside down onto heatproof serving platter or foil.  Serve warm or cool.
