¼ cup chopped pecans, or to taste

4 ½ cups all-purpose flour

2 ½ cups warm water

3 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast

¼ cup butter, melted

½ cup butter, softened

½ cup brown sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 9×13 inch baking pan.

Pour the melted butter into a small bowl. Mix the white sugar and pecans in another small bowl. Dip the top of each roll in the melted butter, then in the sugar and pecan mixture, then place the topped rolls snugly into the prepared pan. Cover the rolls with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled in volume, about 30 minutes.

Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until rolls are golden.
