  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup very cold Lactantia Salted Butter

Pat or roll into a large rectangle, about ½ inch thick.
  3. FILLING : Blend brown sugar with butter and cinnamon; spread evenly over dough. Sprinkle with chopped pecans. Starting at wide end, roll into a log. Cut into 12 portions; arrange, cut side up, over topping.
  4. BAKING : Bake, on centre rack, for 20 to 22 minutes or until biscuit sounds hollow when tapped. Let cool for 5 minutes in pan, then carefully turn out onto a tray to serve.
