Southern Living Pecan Crescent Twists

  • Yield: 8 servings


  • 2-8oz can(s) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 3 tablespoon(s) melted butter, divided
  • 1/2 cup(s) pecans chopped
  • 1/4 cup(s) granulated sugar

  • 2 1/2 teaspoon(s) maple syrup or milk


Unroll crescent rolls, and separate each can into 2 rectangles, pressing perforations to seal. Brush evenly with 2 tbsp melted butter. Stir together chopped pecans and next 3 ingredients; sprinkle 3 tbsp pecan mixture onto each rectangle, pressing in gently. Roll up, starting at 1 long side, and twist. Cut 6 shallow 1/2 inch long diagonal slits in each roll. Shape rolls into rings pressing ends together; place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Brush rings with remaining 1 tbsp butter. Bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes or until rings are golden. Stir together powdered sugar and maple syrup until smooth; drizzle over warm rings. Cut rings in half and serve.
