I found these seamless Pillsbury Crescent dough sheets at the store the other day and started wondering what I could make with them. I went to the Pillsbury website and found this recipe. I didn’t have any pecans but that’s ok because Ariel doesn’t like nuts in her food. They turned out so yummy; they remind me of pecan twirls. I have been eating pecan twirls since I was a little girl, oh how I love pecan twirls. I would love it when my stepmom Gen would make them. They were her way of baking; she would add a dab of butter on top of each roll then heat them up in the oven. I could eat the whole pan back then just like I could have today with the petite caramel pecan rolls if I didn’t have to share them with Richard and Ariel.
