10Cut filled roll every 1 1/2inch. Poke roll from bottom up in middle to create pretty shape and place in each greased muffin tin cut side down.

11Brush tops of cinnamon rolls with more butter. Cover and let rise until almost double about 30-40 minutes.

12Bake at 375 for 15 minutes or until done--be careful not to overcook or they will not be as tender.

13Mix together sifted powdered sugar, vanilla, and butter. Add enough milk to make a runny frosting to drizzle on top.

14Serve warm. Drizzle frosting on top with a spoon and if desired sprinkle more chopped pecans on.
