Easy Homemade Cinnamon Rolls


Using frozen dinner rolls, these cinnamon rolls are easy to make but don’t skimp on taste.  Making them the night before helps me to enjoy a relaxing morning.  They are a family favorite and make enough for guests.


1 – 1 ½ cups chopped pecans, if using

20 frozen dinner rolls

1 small package butterscotch pudding

½ cup butter (1 stick)

½ cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Spray a 9 x13 baking pan with oil
  2. Sprinkle pecans on bottom of baking pan.  Pecans can be omitted or sprinkled on just part of the pan.
  3. Place frozen rolls in rows on top of pecans.   The rolls will not cover pan when frozen, but will expand when they rise. 
  4. Shake dry butterscotch pudding on top and rolls and pecans.
  5. Melt butter.  Stir in brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla.  Continue stirring until brown sugar has dissolved, and the mixture is thick.  Pour mixture evenly over pan.
  6. Place plastic wrap over pan, and place in oven overnight.  The rolls will rise.
  7. In the morning, take pan out of oven.
  8. Preheat oven to 350°.  Bake uncovered for 20 minutes.
