Caramel Bacon Cinnamon Rolls

Active Time: 20 minutes • Total Time: 35 minutes • Makes: 8 rolls

1 package (2.25 ounces) pecan halves (1/2 cup)
1 package (13 ounces) refrigerated Pillsbury® Cinnabon® flaky cinnamon rolls with butter cream icing
8 slices precooked bacon
1/3 cup packed Schnucks light brown sugar
2 tablespoons water
1/4 cup Schnucks whipping cream
3 tablespoons Schnucks unsalted butter, cut into pieces

1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Place pecans in oven-safe skillet or metal cake pan. Roast 8 to 10 minutes or until deeply toasted, browned and fragrant.

2. Remove cinnamon rolls and icing from package. Set aside icing to use later. Unroll 1 cinnamon roll. Place 1 slice bacon on cinnamon (inside) side of roll. Re-roll cinnamon roll with bacon enclosed; place in 9-inch metal cake pan. Repeat with remaining cinnamon rolls and bacon, arranging rolls equally apart in pan. Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until golden on top.

3. Meanwhile, in heavy 1- to 2-quart saucepan, add icing from package of cinnamon rolls, brown sugar and water; heat to boiling over medium heat, stirring occasionally with rubber spatula. Boil 4 to 4-1/2 minutes or until mixture becomes deep brown in color, stirring frequently. Stir in cream; boil 4 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Remove saucepan from heat; add butter and stir until melted. Stir in toasted pecans.

4. Pour sauce evenly over baked cinnamon rolls. Bake 2 minutes longer or until sauce bubbles on top. Remove cinnamon rolls from oven. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
