Ingredients for Hennessy Pecan Cinnamon Rolls

To get started, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  1. 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  2. 1/4 cup of granulated sugar
  3. 1 packet of active dry yeast
  4. 1/2 cup of milk
  5. 1/4 cup of Hennessy
  6. 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter
  7. 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  8. 1 egg
  9. 1/2 cup of chopped pecans
  10. 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  11. 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon

Step-by-Step Instructions

Preparing the Dough

  1. Start by warming the milk and Hennessy in a small saucepan over low heat until it reaches a temperature of about 110°F. Be sure not to overheat, as it can kill the yeast.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the warm milk and Hennessy mixture with the yeast. Let it sit for about 5 minutes until it becomes frothy.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, granulated sugar, and salt. Add the yeast mixture and the egg, then knead the dough until it’s smooth and elastic.
  4. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a damp cloth, and let it rise for about 1 hour or until it doubles in size.

Filling and Rolling

  1. Roll out the dough into a rectangle on a floured surface.
  2. Spread the softened butter evenly over the dough.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle this mixture over the buttered dough.
  4. Sprinkle the chopped pecans over the sugar and cinnamon mixture.
  5. Roll up the dough tightly, starting from the long side.


  1. Cut the rolled dough into 12 equal slices and place them in a greased baking dish.
  2. Cover the dish and let the rolls rise for another 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  4. Bake the rolls for 20-25 minutes or until they turn golden brown.


  1. While the rolls are baking, prepare the glaze. You’ll need:
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of Hennessy
  • 2-3 tablespoons of milk
  1. Mix the powdered sugar, Hennessy, and enough milk to achieve your desired glaze consistency.
  2. Drizzle the glaze over the warm cinnamon rolls as soon as they come out of the oven.
