   1      pkg         prepared cinnamon roll dough (the canned type in the refrigerated case work just fine)
                            - or one batch of 25 Minute Gump Bread for cinnamon rolls in this section -
   1      cup           butter blend ( or use real butter )
   1      cup           brown sugar
1/2      cup           pecan pieces

In saucepan, place brown sugar and butter.  Melt together till creamy and sugar is completely dissolved and mixture starts to bubble.  Don't cook it beyond this stage, you just want everything melted completely together and the brown sugar completely dissolved.

Turn out on serving tray immediately by placing tray on top of cinnamon rolls and inverting the pan.  Be very careful,  the glaze will be runny and very hot.    Carefully lift the pan at one corner and then remove completely.  Be sure to get all that good glaze out of the pan and drizzle it over your cinnamon rolls.
