Crescent roll dough in a tube makes for a tasty crust that holds sweet, crunchy toasted pecans.


  • 1 (8 ounce) tube crescent dinner roll dough
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Butter a 9 x 13-inch baking pan.
  2. Unroll dough from tube and place in buttered pan. With fingers, pinch together seams and press dough onto the bottom of the pan, coming up the sides just a little.
  3. Bake for 5 minutes in oven just to set the dough. It will not yet be done.
  4. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Pour over partially-baked crust and spread almost to edges with a spoon. Return to oven and bake about 20 minutes more until deep golden brown (top will be soft and bubbly).
  5. Allow to cool before cutting into squares.
