Makes 12 cookies


2 to 2-1 / 2 cups all-purpose flour

1 envelope FLEISCHMANN’S RapidRise Yeast

1 / 2 teaspoon salt

1 / 2 cup water

1 / 4 cup honey

1 / 4 cup butter or margarine

1 egg, large


Pecan Filling

2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted

3 / 4 cup sugar

1 cup chopped pecans, toasted

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

In a large bowl, combine 3 / 4 cup flour, undissolved yeast, and salt. Heat water, honey and butter until very warm (120o to 130oF). Gradually add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add egg and 1 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.

Roll dough to 12-inch square. Brush with melted butter; spread with 1 cup Pecan Filling. Roll up tightly as for jelly roll; pinch seam to seal. Cut into 12 (1-inch) pieces. Flatten and roll each piece to 6-inch circle using remaining Pecan Filling in place of flour on surface. Turn each piece during rolling to coat top and bottom. Place on large greased baking sheet. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 30 to 45 minutes.

Bake at 375oF for 10 to 15 minutes or until done. Cool on baking sheet 5 minutes; remove to wire rack to cool completely.

Pecan Filling: In a medium bowl, combine sugar, pecans and ground cinnamon. Stir to blend well.
