MELT 2 tablespoons butter in 13 x 9-inch baking pan in preheated 375° F. oven. Unroll dinner rolls; separate into 16 triangles. Sprinkle triangles with 1 1/3 cups morsels. Starting at shortest side, roll up each triangle; arrange in prepared baking pan. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned.

MICROWAVE remaining morsels with remaining butter in medium, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; STIR. The morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10 to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted. Stir in nuts, sugar, lemon juice, water and cinnamon. Pour over hot rolls; return to oven.

BAKE for 5 minutes or until bubbly. To prevent sticking, immediately loosen buns from pan. Cool in pan on wire rack for 10 minutes; serve warm.

Warm Butterscotch Sticky Buns... Warm Memories

I love to bake and to try new recipes and my family loves to eat them, so it's a win-win situation all around. This particular recipe brought an added delight for me when I baked it because of my husband's response. He really enjoyed the sticky buns for their warm and spicy flavor, but then he told me that they reminded him of a pastry that his grandma used to make and shared some of those memories with us at the breakfast table. Since then, I keep this recipe handy for those cold mornings to warm our stomachs and hopefully, making a few lasting, happy memories of our own.
