Maple Cinnamon Coffee Cake

Here is a foolproof and easy twist on refrigerated cinnamon rolls. The maple syrup adds another layer of flavor. These are really delicious.

1 (12.4-oz.) can Refrigerated Cinnamon Rolls with Icing
1/2 cup pecan halves or pieces
2 tablespoons margarine or butter, melted
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons maple syrup

Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 9-inch glass pie pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Separate dough into 8 rolls. Cut each roll into quarters; place in large bowl.
In small bowl, combine margarine, brown sugar and syrup; mix well. Add brown sugar mixture to dough mixture; toss gently to combine. Place in pan.
Bake at 350°F. for 28 to 38 minutes or until deep golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. Invert onto serving platter.

A great variation is using 1 cup of chopped apples. Place in pan first then top with the cinnamon roll mixture. Bake...yum!!
