Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 8 Rhodes Microwave Cinnamon Rolls
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries or raisins optional

Instructions

  • Allow the cinnamon rolls to thaw at room temperature until you can easily cut them into quarters. Alternatively, you can place (4) cinnamon rolls at a time on a paper plate. Microwave them on defrost for 25 seconds.
  • In a liquid measuring cup with a spout, combine the butter, water, brown sugar and cinnamon. Microwave for about 1 minute until the butter is melted. Stir to combine.
  • In a small microwave-safe glass baking pan or casserole dish, layer pieces of the dough and and drizzle on the brown sugar mixture. If you're adding dried fruit, sprinkle it in between the pieces of cinnamon roll dough.
  • Microwave for 5 minutes at 70% power or until done.
  • Top with chopped pecans and serve immediately.

Notes

If you're not a fan of pecans, you can swap them out for walnuts or just omit them. I find that this is a very sweet dessert and doesn't need the icing, but of course you can add it if you like!
