April is National Pecan Month! Yes! Everyone stand and join in a round of applause for the almighty pecan! As you can see I’m a major fan of this amazing tree nut. This love started at a very early age, sitting around the table with my parents, cracking shelled pecans one by one, enjoying each other’s company. I always looked forward to my mother picking up a bag from the grocery store. Today, I enjoy an occasional nut cracking session with my daughter. I am very excited about National Pecan Month to say the least.
Purely Pecans contains no additives and no preservatives. Every jar is comprised of 100% pecans we source directly from local farmers.
I want to introduce you to a pretty awesome company, Purely Pecans. They were very nice to send me nice package that included this very tasty Pecan Butter. I immediately wanted to taste it. I opened it up and just like the jar said it was 100% pure pecans. Wow! So how exactly can you use pecan butter? Well the possibles are endless, if you’re the adventure type in the kitchen. I incorporated Purely Pecan Butter in some homemade cinnamon rolls. They were pretty amazing!
Cinnamon Pecan Rolls
1 cup warm milk
1 Tbsp Active Dry Yeast
2 Tbsp Sugar
1 tsp sea salt
3 Tbsp salted whipped butter
3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1/4 cup melted butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup Pure Pecans Pecan Butter heated
2 Tbsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
Brown Sugar Glaze
1/2 brown sugar
2 Tbsp butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbsp milk
1/8 tsp salt
Combine warm milk, yeast, sugar, salt, egg, and butter in a large bowl. Let set for 10 minutes.
Add flour and mix with wooden spoon until dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 15 minutes.
Transfer dough to a lightly greased bowl. Cover with tea towel and let set for 1 hour. Dough should double in size.
Punch down on dough and turn onto lightly greased surface. Roll dough into a 12X18 rectangle.
Brush butter over dough. Pour pecan butter over butter and spread evenly. Mix brown sugar and cinnamon, then sprinkle on top of pecan butter.
Roll dough tight lengthwise until you get a long roll. Cut dough with a sharp knife into 12 one inch slices.
Place slices into a pan, cover and let rise for 30 minutes.
Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees. Bake rolls for 15 minutes or until golden on top.
While cinnamon rolls are baking prepare Glaze.
Combine all ingredients into saucepan and heat until boiling. Let cool.
When Cinnamon Rolls are golden, remove from oven and drizzle with glaze.
Let cool, if you like, or enjoy immediately!
Thanks Purely Pecans for celebrating National Pecan Month with me!!
