When I took it out of the refrigerator in the morning, the whole shebang was frozen. Nothing had risen! Something went way wrong, or a step was left out. ??

It most definitely shouldn't have still been frozen. I believe even the package of frozen rolls says to thaw overnight in the refrigerator. Was your fridge extra-full from Thanksgiving (that could affect the temperature)

My friend gave me this recipe & called it "Christmas Rolls" -- my family was SO impressed when I took them out of the oven on Christmas morning! This recipe is VERY easy & mouth watering, sinfully delicious! I highly recommend this!

Thank you thank you! This is the recipe my Mom makes every Christmas, and I believe I have asked her for it four times already (and keep losing it - how embarrassing).
It is super easy and pretty good - I'm giving it 5 stars for nostalgia :) and for goodness vs. easiness, although I don't think it is as good as a traditional cinnamon or pecan bun recipe. There is just no way I am going to go to that trouble on Christmas! We make ours the same, except we put the whole small box of pudding into the butter/sugar mix, with less cinnamon - maybe 1 T? I also worry less about the exact amount of pecans and just make sure the bottom of the pan is completely covered with them - no skimping on Christmas. Thanks for saving me the humiliation of asking Mom for this recipe again!

Sorry, I didn't read the instructions very carefully the first time. We put the nuts (we use pecans) in the pan first - then the rolls, then the "sauce". Then invert the pan (I use a baking sheet) before serving. My mom also puts this together on a short night after Santa visits, so it is only out for about 5 or 6 hours. I found out the hard way that if you plan on sleeping in, make sure the rolls are in a cool place (not the fridge) or they will rise too much and be "holey" and unappealing.
