My cousin's wife made this for our Christmas breakfast and it was absolutely delicious. She gave me the recipe and I made it this morning. It's very fattening, but for a once-a-year type meal I think we'll all be okay. :)
1/4 cup butter, melted (I used "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter")
2 cans (12.4 oz each) refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing
6 eggs (I used Egg Beaters)
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon (I cut this down to one teaspoon.)
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup pancake syrup (this is optional)
Icing from cinnamon rolls - 2 containers included in cinnamon rolls
Heat oven to 375°F. Pour melted butter into ungreased 13x9-inch glass baking dish. Separate both cans of dough into 16 rolls; set icing aside. Cut each roll into 8 pieces; place pieces over butter in dish.
In medium bowl, beat eggs. Beat in cream, cinnamon and vanilla until well blended; gently pour over roll pieces. Sprinkle with pecans; drizzle with syrup.
Bake 20 to 28 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 15 minutes. Remove covers from icing and microwave 10 to 15 seconds or until thin enough to drizzle.
Drizzle icing over top. If desired, spoon syrup from dish over individual servings.
(You can also add powdered sugar to the top if you'd like - I did not.)
