A Breakfast Treat

While you're having a favorite cup of coffee or tea skip the donut and consider this very easy breakfast treat.  It is company worthy! And uses only 6 ingredients! 
Caramel Rolls

  • 1 package (12 count) frozen cinnamon rolls 
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1/4 cup Light Karo Syrup
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons whipping cream
  • 3/4-1 cup pecan halves or chopped walnuts

  • In 1-quart saucepan, heat brown sugar and butter to boiling, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in corn syrup and whipping cream. Heat to boiling. Remove from heat; cool 5 minutes.
  • Spray bottom and sides of 13 x 9-inch pan with cooking spray. Pour caramel mixture evenly over bottom of pan. Sprinkle with pecans or walnuts.
  • Place frozen rolls in 4 rows by 3 rows evenly on caramel-pecan mixture. Cover with plastic wrap generously sprayed with cooking spray or just use a lightweight kitchen towel. 
  • Place pan on top of stove right before you go to bed to let dough rise overnight ot at least 5-6 hours. 
  • If not doubled in size in morning turn oven on for 1 hour.  Actual rising time depends also on temperature of kitchen.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Carefully remove plastic wrap from rolls. Bake 20 minutes or until rolls are a deep golden brown. Immediately place a rimmed cookie sheet over baking pan and invert. 
  • Let baking pan set a few minutes before removing rimmed baking sheet.  
  • Cool slightly and transfer to a serving tray.  
Cleaning Tip When finished with saucepan add water to soak as caramel hardens.

Just a reminder to start saving some poems so you're ready for April Poem in Your Pocket Day this Thursday to share with friends, family and co-workers. 

Spring Morning
by A. A. Milne (Winnie-the-Pooh)

Where am I going? I don’t quite know.
Down to the stream where the king-cups grow-
Up on the hill where the pine-trees blow-
Anywhere, anywhere. I don’t know.

Where am I going? The clouds sail by,
Little ones, baby ones, over the sky.
Where am I going? The shadows pass,
Little ones, baby ones, over the grass.

If you were a cloud, and sailed up there,
You’d sail on water as blue as air,
And you’d see me here in the fields and say:
“Doesn’t the sky look green today?”

Where am I going? The high rooks call:
“It’s awful fun to be born at all.”
Where am I going? The ring-doves coo:
“We do have beautiful things to do.”

If you were a bird, and lived on high,
You’d lean on the wind when the wind came by,
You’d say to the wind when it took you away:
“That’s where I wanted to go today!”

Where am I going? I don’t quite know.
What does it matter where people go?
Down to the wood where the blue-bells grow-
Anywhere, anywhere. I don’t know.
