6. No Carefully take the bottom parchment paper and use it to roll the dough into a roll(do NOT touch the dough with your hands its very sticky. After each turn make sure to use the paper to press down.

11.  While you wait for the rolls to cool begin making the frosting by blending the ingredients in a small blender or in a bowl with a hand mixer.

12.  Once the rolls have cooled frost and top with pecans. Enjoy!
