To make cinnamon rolls: In a large baking pan, pour enough melted margarine or butter to make a heavy coating. Sprinkle with brown sugar, dark corn syrup and pecans. Divide dough in half and roll out. Sprinkle with margarine or butter, white sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon. Roll up and cut 1 inch slices. Place on top of pecan mixture in pan.
This recipe fills1 large and 1 small pan. These may be frozen at this point. Let the rolls rise in the refridgerator overnight after taking out - or - leave at room temperature 2 hours before baking.

Brush with melted butter and bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until nicely browned.
